Is Furnace Maintenance Necessary?

February 13, 2020

Seeing how your furnace is heating your home just fine, you might be wondering why HVAC companies are always recommending regular maintenance. Is maintenance really that necessary? Below, we want to show what the benefits of it are. These benefits cannot be had in any other way.

Heating Benefits

Your furnace might be heating your home sufficiently because it’s relatively new. All furnaces, though, develop issues with time. Filters will get dirty, for instance, or belts will get worn. These are small and unnoticeable at first, but they can, later on, cause the system to do things like short cycle, blow out lukewarm air or unevenly heat rooms and floors.

By having a technician from Jeffries Heating & Air + Plumbing tune-up the furnace once a year, homeowners in Somerset, KY, can have these issues addressed before they grow and compromise heating. The furnace can then heat more quickly and with less energy expenditure.

Financial Benefits

The more energy-efficient your furnace is, the less your heating expenses will be. Even simple maintenance tasks like calibrating the thermostat and tightening the electrical connections will contribute to these savings.

Maintenance also reduces the chances of a system completely breaking down, which means you save in the long run by not needing to have major repairs done.

Safety Benefits

Leaks and cracks in furnaces, especially in heat exchangers and gas valves, pose a serious hazard. Fires can occur, or toxic gas can escape. Any maintenance technicians worth their salt can detect these leaks and cracks and prevent such things from happening.

For Furnaces With Warranties

Last but not least, maintenance is absolutely necessary to keep a manufacturer’s warranty valid. These warranties can cover the cost of parts replacements and unit replacements within a certain number of years.
