Most Houstonians welcome the cooler days of fall and winter when they finally roll into our area. For months, our air conditioners have been running non-stop and then suddenly the nights get cooler, and we are ready to turn the furnace on to keep our homes and offices comfortable. While you may not have had to turn your furnace on quite yet right now is the perfect time to schedule your yearly furnace tune up.
Avoid Emergencies with a Yearly Furnace Checkup
Our heating and cooling systems are easy to take for granted, but it is important to remember that they are mechanical devices and their parts wear over time. When you schedule a yearly furnace checkup, a service technician will come to your home or office and inspect your system to ensure it is in good working order. Any wearing parts or mechanical issues can be addressed before they turn into an emergent problem. While the Houston area does not often experience extreme winter weather, 2021 taught us frigid temperatures are possible.
Extend the Life of Your Furnace
When you have your furnace serviced yearly, you are also protecting your furnace and extending its life. Regular maintenance allows wearing parts to be replaced before they fail, causing damage to other aspects of the system. Home and business owners who service their furnaces yearly also find that their furnace will last longer and run more efficiently.
Lower Your Energy Bills
Houston Area residents are no stranger to high energy bills. Having your furnace inspected every year can ensure that it is running optimally. Furnaces that are not well maintained will require more energy to run, driving up your energy bills. With the rising cost of energy, having a technician come out to service your system will help you control your energy usage and lower your bills.
While we rely on heaters to keep our homes and offices comfortable during the winter, a heater that runs is not necessarily safe. Units that are not well maintained or that have aged can often leak carbon monoxide into the air. A carbon monoxide leak is dangerous and requires an immediate repair. Ensuring your heater is safe to use is a major benefit of yearly maintenance checks.
