Keep reading to find out more! (And of course, remember to call us to tune-up your furnace in Grand Rapids this fall!)
“But Do I Really NEED Maintenance?”
It’s possible your furnace will get through the winter without a maintenance session—but it will most likely not be as efficient or as effective as you’d like it to be. Maintenance is one of the best things you can do for your heating system — when a technician completes a tune-up and inspection (followed up by any recommended services afterward), your system improves in more ways than one:
- Decreased energy bills
- Reduced need for repairs
- Extended equipment life
“What If My Furnace Is Still New?”
Of course, a brand-new furnace should have received the service it needed at the time of installation. But many people believe that if they’ve had a furnace for 1 year, 3 years, or even 5 years, it doesn’t need to get any service.
Even heaters that were installed one year ago can benefit greatly from service. First of all, some warranties are only valid if you have regular maintenance. Secondly, it minimizes wear and tear, reducing the chances of a sudden breakdown and potentially increasing the life of the system.
“Isn’t It Too Soon?”
Trust us, we know the weather is nowhere near what it will be in the winter — when we want to blast our heating systems all day, every day. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared! Trust us, the sooner the better!
A complete inspection of your heating equipment may reveal that there is a repair you need before you can expect to run the heater safely. Therefore, scheduling maintenance now gives you plenty of time to schedule that repair, that way, you’re not stuck dealing with a full system breakdown during the time of year you need heat most!
“But, I’d Rather Save My Money For Something Else!”
Of course, it will cost money to have a technician come in and maintain your furnace. However, in the long run, it will save you money. Catching problems early means saving on emergency heating repair and the accrual of wear and tear that can cause a system to fail early. Plus, there’s the decrease in your energy and fuel costs the longer you keep up with a regular maintenance schedule.
