Benefits of a Furnace Tune-Up
Every year in September, especially right around the middle of it. We in Michigan, start to wonder just how many days of warm weather we have left. Now I know some people who dread the thought of the leaves changing color, they know what follows. On the flip side, I know people who can’t wait for the cold weather and are already setting up for Halloween.
No matter how you feel about the weather changing, the simple fact is, it’s going to. So how do we get ready for kicking that furnace on for the first time this season? Why should I spend money on getting a tune-up? Well, below I’m going to explain the benefits of getting prepared and getting your furnace a tune-up from an All Seasons professional.
Prevent Furnace Repairs & Breakdown
The best way to solidify a bad feeling about a Winter looming in the distance is by starting it out with no heat and having a breakdown. A broken heating system’s unexpected expense and frustration can ruin any day or night. When you schedule a furnace tune-up you make sure that everything is working correctly. Avoiding regular maintenance could result in needing furnace repairs like:
- Dirty Flame Sensor
- Bad Limit Switch
- Malfunctioning/Cracked Heat Exchanger
- Old Filters
- Frequent & Over Cycling
- Broke Ignitor
REDUCE YOUR ENERGY BILL
Being in Michigan we all know what our furnace does on the first real cold night of the Fall until around May the following year. It turns on and doesn’t turn off! A furnace can make up about 50% of your energy bill or more during these cold Michigan months. A well-tuned furnace will be more efficient and use less energy. Add in a new thermostat, and you may just be making this Winter more affordable.
EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR FURNACE
Just like a car, your furnace’s life expectancy depends on how you take care of it. By ensuring the furnace isn’t working harder than it needs to you can add years to its life. When an All Seasons professional comes into your home to do a tune-up, not only will we clean your furnace, we can evaluate that the furnace has all of its parts working up to factory-recommended specifications.
Annual furnace maintenance will help to keep you and your family safe. An All Seasons technician will make sure that your furnace is in working condition to protect your family from dangers like gas and carbon monoxide leaks. These are harder to detect because the gas is colorless and odorless. High carbon monoxide levels can cause nausea, headaches, and in some cases, death. Having annual furnace maintenance will help catch any potential safety risks, and give you peace of mind that your furnace is working properly and up to safety standards.
Having your annual furnace tune-up done by an All Seasons professional will ensure that your family has a safe, efficient, and fun Winter. So give us a call today at (989) 832-2752 and learn more!
