The cooler temperatures have arrived – is your furnace ready to heat your home for the season? One of the best ways to prepare for the winter is to schedule furnace maintenance in Bethesda. Maintenance for your heating system isn’t a quick once-over with a flashlight; it’s a full system tune-up that helps both you and your system throughout the winter months. If it’s been more than a year since your last maintenance appointment, call Tuckers Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing today!
Here are some of the reasons it’s important to schedule maintenance for your furnace:
- Helps prevent future repair needs – during maintenance, your system is thoroughly inspected. This allows the technician to detect any existing or developing issues. If small problems are discovered, such as frayed or corroded wiring, the technician will repair these items during the appointment. Should a bigger problem be found, you’ll be informed of the issue and advised to schedule a repair appointment to remedy the problem.
- Better energy efficiency – your system was made to operate at a specific level of energy efficiency. When the system and its components wear down, and its parts are dirty and dusty, your furnace can’t achieve the level of efficiency it should. The cleaning, adjusting and lubricating that occur during a maintenance appointment allow your system to work optimally, so it can achieve its normal level of efficiency.
- Better comfort – a worn and dirty furnace will have a hard time achieving the temperature that you set on your thermostat. The tune-up your system receives during a maintenance appointment allows the system to function optimally so it can achieve the comfort level you need.
- Extends system lifespan – a furnace that operates year after year without maintenance is far more prone to breakdown and premature aging. Keeping the system in good working order with annual maintenance helps to extend the life of your equipment.
