Is Furnace Maintenance Necessary?

February 11, 2020

You may run your furnace all throughout the fall and winter without giving a second thought to its condition. This is a dangerous thing to do. Below, we want to explain just why every furnace owner should have maintenance performed at least once a year.

It Maintains Your Warranty

Your manufacturer’s warranty likely requires you to have yearly maintenance done on the furnace. Not complying with this will make your warranty void and, thus, force you to pay for parts replacement and other repair jobs.

It Prevents Breakdowns

Furnaces, like any heating system, develop issues. These may start out small but will only grow over time, increasing the risk for a breakdown. Rather than being left without heat on a winter’s day, get a tune-up to ensure that your furnace is running as smoothly as possible.

Floworx Mechanical LLC can handle maintenance for homes throughout Pueblo, CO. Our tune-ups can cover all the basics, including the cleaning and lubricating of parts and the tightening of electrical connections.

It Lowers Your Bills

A well-running furnace does not expend as much energy to heat your home and can reach your desired temperature sooner. All of this means that you save on your energy bills. Regular tune-ups will leave your furnace free of the dirt, grime, dust, and other contaminants that contribute to inefficiency.

It Keeps You Safe

Whether you own a gas or electric furnace, it requires a flame to do its job. This leaves it open to a host of combustion-related hazards, especially if the system develops leaks and cracks. With a tune-up, though, you can have a team of professionals inspect your heat exchanger and other components. For gas furnaces, maintenance can also involve the calibration of the gas valves.
