Most of us use our cars once or twice a day. And we tune them up once or twice a year. In winter, our furnaces turn on and off several times a day, around the clock. But when’s the last time you did a furnace tune-up?
Just like your car, your furnace will run better after a tune-up and that’s just one of the important benefits you’ll enjoy.
The Benefits of a Furnace Tune-Up
Also like your car, you should get your furnace tuned up by a trained professional. Hargrave Heating & Air Conditioning’s tune-up specialists know how to make sure your furnace delivers peak performance. And if you are protected by one of our HVAC Maintenance Protection Programs, you get an annual inspection maintenance visit for no extra charge.
And here are just a few benefits you’ll enjoy if you do.
Lower Energy Bills
Most furnaces perform reliably for years without breaking down or needing repairs. But that doesn’t mean they are working efficiently. Or that they couldn’t be working even better. From simple things like a clean air filter to more complex issues like efficient burner operation, they can all affect how much energy your furnace uses to heat your home. The more smoothly your furnace operates, the less energy it needs, and the lower your bills.
Lower Replacement Costs
When your furnace is properly tuned and maintained, it doesn’t need to work as hard to heat your home. Lower stress on all its parts and systems means they won’t wear out as quickly. And that means your furnace will last longer—and you won’t have to pay for a new one as often.
Fewer Unpleasant Surprises
Look at it this way: the longer it’s been since you installed your furnace or had it tuned up, the closer you are to an unexpected breakdown. When it happens, that breakdown will likely happen at the worst possible time—on the coldest day of the winter. That’s when it will be under the most stress and more likely to have problems.
