Most homeowners in Edmonton and surrounding area know just how important furnace and furnace maintenance is for bearing the cold winter months.
We rely on our heating systems to keep us warm and safe, but often forget how hard our furnaces are working and that they require regular furnace maintenance to continue working efficiently.
Neglecting your furnace can negatively impact its performance and seriously affect the health and safety of the people in your home.
HVAC professionals recommend annual furnace maintenance and as a result, homeowners will reap the benefits.
Let’s Talk about the 5 benefits of furnace maintenance –
1.) LOWER UTILITY BILLS
Furnaces operating in peak order don’t have to work as hard and for as long to heat your home. This means relief for both the system and your wallet. If your furnace runs more efficiently and uses less gas and energy to heat your home, you will see a reduction in your monthly utility bills. Ignite technicians will ensure your furnace is operating efficiently and not working harder than it needs to.
2.) IMPROVED HOME AIR QUALITY
Furnaces use air filters to improve the quality of the air inside your home. These filters need to be replaced regularly to avoid dust and debris buildup. A clean filter will allow the furnace to operate efficiently and remove contaminants from the air you breathe inside your home. Improving the air quality in your home can help you avoid allergy symptoms and keep you breathing easy through the colder months.
3.) EXTENDED PRODUCT LIFE
Maintenance can help extend the life of your furnace and ensure you get the most out of the equipment. Replacing your furnace can be costly, especially if you have to do it often. By keeping your system in good condition through regular maintenance, you can extend the product’s lifespan. A well-maintained furnace will last several years longer than one that is neglected. Taking good care of your furnace will maximize its efficiency and allow it to last you a long time, saving you money on premature replacements.
4.) IMPROVED SAFETY WITH FURNACE MAINTENANCE
During our Ignite ‘clean and checks’, technicians inspect the general maintenance of your furnace as well as electrical, gas, and combustion air and venting systems to recognize potential leaks or cracks. Small issues with the system can lead to gas or carbon monoxide leaking into your home, putting your safety at risk. Regular maintenance allows you peace of mind to know that you and your family are safe.
5.) AVOID REPAIRS AND BREAKDOWNS WITH FURNACE MAINTENANCE
Maintaining your furnace ensures it is running smoothly and efficiently. Regular cleaning and upkeep help homeowners avoid unexpected issues and problems with the heating in their homes. Regular maintenance also allows technicians to recognize potential problems and fix them before they get worse. It is important to know how your furnace is operating and where minor fixes can be made to avoid costly repairs or breakdowns.
