Why Is Regular Furnace Maintenance So Important?

Imagine this scenario: It's Michigan, and it's winter time (cue Beethoven's 5th Symphony). It's well below freezing and mother nature decided to drop a couple inches of snow. You're just about ready to turn your heat on and then...nothing.

So, why you? The answer is simple. Furnace maintenance! Although the majority of HVAC systems are energy efficient, they do need maintenance from time to time. Nothing extends the life of your furnace or heat pump like regular maintenance. Regular maintenance also helps lower your energy consumption, yielding to substantial savings on your energy costs.

Scheduling a tune-up during the fall, just before winter hits, will ensure that your furnace is in good working condition. Not to mention, a maintenance fee is much cheaper than a costly furnace repair fee. The small investment in a furnace tune-up now will return big rewards later in more ways than one. Here’s how:

Ensuring proper airflow: Without proper maintenance, restricted or limited airflow will place an unnecessary strain on your furnace that could shorten it's lifespan

Keep your home and family safe: If your furnace never gets a proper tune-up, a small combustion problem can lead to gas leaking into your home or leaving dangerous levels of carbon monoxide that could be detrimental to your health.

Improves energy efficiency: Cleaning and inspecting your furnace will be the most beneficial thing to do to extend the life of your furnace. Some manufacturers even require proof of regular maintenance since it's so important, so always keep a copy of your receipt for any service work performed!
