Colder weather will be here before we know it and we want to make sure your furnace is prepared for what the Farmer’s Almanac is claiming will be an especially brutal winter. Having your heating system working safely and efficiently is crucial during those long, cold winters and your annual furnace maintenance is essential in keeping your system healthy and long-running. Here are 3 reasons why you should perform annual maintenance on your furnace, also known as a “precision tune-up.”
Keep Your Equipment Running at the Highest Efficiency
Just like you get the oil changed in your car regularly to keep it running smoothly, you need to do the same with your furnace. During a precision tune-up, a technician will go through an inspection checklist to ensure your equipment is running at its peak performance levels. During your annual precision tune-up, we also ensure your equipment is clean. One of the earliest signs your equipment needs a precision tune-up is an increase in your energy bills. Cleaner equipment ensures your unit isn’t working harder than it needs to.
You don’t just buy a car and then never take it in for maintenance again, do you? A furnace is a big investment in your home and, as such, needs upkeep. To keep your furnace running at optimal performance, annual maintenance is necessary. As mentioned before, keeping your equipment clean (with yearly checks) can prevent issues, detect problems before they happen, and keep your equipment lasting longer. In the long run this saves money not only on your energy bills, but also on replacement units.
Maintaining Air Quality in Your Home
Part of your precision tune-up includes replacing filters. It’s crucial to replace the filters in your equipment to keep your home’s air quality high. This is especially important if you or anyone in your home suffers from asthma or allergies. Keeping your equipment clean helps keep the air in the rest of your home clean.
Furnace precision tune-ups can be performed year-round, but keep in mind that your heat does need to be on to perform the tune-up. If you’re in need of a precision tune-up call Black Diamond today at (866) 350-4793.
