As with any complex machine with moving parts, your furnace needs periodic maintenance to work properly. Heating maintenance involves inspecting, cleaning, lubricating, and repairing the working parts of your heating system. The benefits include increased energy efficiency, fewer break downs, cleaner indoor air, and safe operation. These benefits make heating maintenance in Carrboro a wise choice for every home owner with a furnace or heating system of any kind.
Increased HVAC energy efficiency saves you money
One of the greatest benefits of heating maintenance is the fact that it saves you money. Although you pay for the service, the amount of energy you save when your furnace is in good working order means your heating bill will be as much as 20% lower. Heating maintenance involves cleaning and lubricating parts so that your furnace will not have to work as hard to heat your home. This means less heating fuel is required to keep your home comfortable, thus lowering your monthly bill.
Have worry-free home heat this winter
Having your furnace tuned up before the coldest winter months means you don’t have to worry that your heat will fail on a cold day or night. A tune up will involve inspecting and repairing or replacing any worn out parts that could cause a break down. It also includes checking and tightening electrical connections so that all parts will have the power needed to start up and run properly. You also save money by avoiding emergency repairs after hours that could result in higher fees.
Breathe easier with cleaner indoor air
Indoor air quality is an issue that is often overlooked. The condition of the air you breathe affects the health of you and your family. Allergens such as dust, pet dander, pollen, mold, and even lead can build up in your HVAC system causing increased respiratory issues like asthma and allergies. An even bigger concern is carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Furnaces release carbon monoxide during the combustion process, when fuel is burned to create heat. A clean, well maintained furnace will only produce minimal amounts of CO that are vented outside of the home. However, dirty furnaces with soot build-up will produce higher levels of carbon monoxide. Leaky ductwork or flues can allow CO to enter the air in your home in greater quantities. CO exposure can cause fatigue, dizziness, and brain damage as well as other health issues. Prolonged exposure to high levels of carbon monoxide can be fatal. Avoid these risks with yearly heating maintenance.
A well-tuned furnace keeps your family safe
A clean, properly functioning furnace will significantly lower the risk of fire. Because furnaces burn fuel, there is always a slight fire risk despite all of the built-in safety features. Maintenance involves cleaning the soot out of the combustion chamber and inspecting the pilot light, both of which can be dangerous if not properly taken care of. Electrical components are also checked for safety and repaired if necessary to reduce the risk of fire from electric spark.
