Here are the top-5 furnace tune-up benefits
Winter is not far away from Louisiana. If you’ve been putting off scheduling your furnace tune-up with the pros at Southern Air, it’s time to give us a call. In this blog, we’ll review some furnace tune-up benefits and how you can save time, save money, and get peace of mind with our services.
1. Ensure that your furnace operates safely
This is the most important benefit of scheduling a furnace tune-up is that it will ensure the safety of your home.Gas furnaces with a cracked heat exchanger have the risk of leaking carbon monoxide—a colorless and odorless gas that can be dangerous for you and your family.
Even a small leak can be dangerous. You should not take any chances when it comes to the safety of the household.
2. Reduce the wear-and-tear on your system
A furnace tune-up will also reduce the wear-and-tear the heating system endures this winter. There are many things that can lead to increased strain on the heating system. During a routine furnace tune-up, our experienced technician will thoroughly check each of the components to ensure that everything is working properly.
In case any issue is detected, the technician will work to address them. This will prevent premature breakdown of the furnace.
3. Improve your system’s energy-efficiency
General rule-of-thumb: an unmaintained furnace is an inefficient furnace. From dirty filters to dirty furnaces, dust and dirt can prevent the efficient flow of air. This makes your furnace work harder and longer to create the same amount of heating as before.
If you’ve been noticing uneven heating or cold spots in your home, a tune-up might also be a good idea.
4. Detect problems early . . . before a breakdown
A furnace tune-up allows our technicians to find small issues before they become major problems later on in the winter. This timely resolution means that your furnace has a clean bill of health entering the coldest months of the year.
5. Save money now and in the future
One of the best furnace tune-up benefits? You’ll save not only today, but in the long run. Here’s how.
When you have one of the professional techs from Southern inspect your furnace, they’ll make sure it’s ready to have an energy-efficient winter. That’s money off of every electric or gas bill for months to come. Plus, maintenance helps prevent the need for furnace repair. Who knows just how much that saves you.
However, a tune-up also helps extend the lifespan of your system, meaning that you get more years out of your current unit and won’t need to have Southern Air install a new furnace as quickly. That, too, can save you money.
