Get a Furnace tune Up this Fall

The air has a distinct chill warning us that summer is definitely ending. While many of us aren’t quite ready to give up the sun and warmth, it is a reminder that we should start thinking about some winter maintenance.

Your furnace has been sitting dormant for months now and is probably ready for a tune up. If it’s going to be running hard for the next six- to eight months, shouldn’t it be in top performing condition?

A tune up may sound like a bit of a hassle, but it is anything but. A tune up takes a very short amount of time and is relatively inexpensive. Also, having your furnace maintenance regularly will keep your warranty valid. Repairs due to mechanical failures can be costly and time consuming – keeping your warranty valid through maintenance not only minimizes the chances of this happening but also ensures that if a mechanical failure happens, you are covered.

A tune up can also keep you safe. Carbon monoxide is extremely dangerous and even a small leak could mean disaster for your home. An HVAC technician will check for CO leaks when they come in to tune up your furnace and will patch any trouble areas. A furnace tune up could help save your family’s life.

Finally, a tune up will give you peace of mind. According to Murphy’s Law, it is inevitable that if your furnace is going to go wrong, it will go wrong on the coldest day of the year. You can know for certain that you have done everything possible to prevent this from happening.
