Do I Need Annual Furnace Maintenance?

January 5, 2021

If you own a home, you may wonder if you really need to have it receive professional maintenance every year. There are several good reasons why you should do so, including that it can save you far more money than it costs.

Improve Energy Efficiency

Furnaces naturally become less efficient over time. One big reason why is dirt, dust and debris accumulate on critical components. A technician will clean these parts during maintenance. They’ll also inspect your furnace to see if there are any other issues affecting efficiency.

Reduce Repairs

When a technician tunes up your furnace, they look to see if there are any problems that need attention. They will fix small ones before they turn into expensive repair bills. Heating your home puts a lot of demand on your furnace, so system failure is a distinct possibility if you neglect maintenance.

Accurate Heating & Cooling of East Peoria, IL, performs furnace maintenance. We have NATE-certified technicians who can tune-up any make and model. Our prices are affordable, and we make scheduling an appointment easy.

Ensure Proper Airflow

The technician will make sure your heating system has proper airflow. If your furnace doesn’t get enough airflow, it causes unnecessary strain that directly leads to a shortened lifespan. You’ll have to replace your furnace much sooner than you otherwise would have.

Keep You Safe

During a maintenance visit, the technician will inspect your furnace to ensure it’s operating safely. They’ll inspect the heat exchanger to make sure it’s not cracked and that the combustion process is happening correctly. A problem in either of these areas can lead to carbon monoxide entering your home, which is a serious health concern. It can even be deadly with high enough concentration.

At Accurate Heating & Cooling, we also install and repair furnaces and offer comprehensive air conditioning services. Our other services include duct cleaning, ductless systems, indoor air quality, environmental assessments and commercial HVAC. Get in touch with us today to find out how we can help you.
