Is Furnace Maintenance Necessary?

February 16, 2020

Some homeowners wonder whether they really need to have their furnace regularly maintained by an HVAC technician. Perhaps they’ve heard from a friend that they’ve never had theirs serviced and haven’t had an issue. There are multiple reasons why you should spend the money each year to have your furnace inspected and serviced.

Reduce Your Energy Bill

Unmaintained furnaces become increasingly inefficient. If your furnace is regularly maintained, you can save up to 30 percent on your energy bills. During the annual tune-up, the technician will inspect the parts, clean them, and make sure they’re working optimally.

Reduce the Likelihood of Needing Expensive Repairs

Furnaces that aren’t maintained tend to break down over time. Things that wouldn’t have cost much to fix if caught early end up costing you a lot of money once they fail. Annual inspections aren’t that expensive and can pay for themselves in fewer repair bills alone.

Make Your Home Safer

During an annual inspection, the technician will make sure your furnace is operating safely. A gas leak can be very dangerous, especially as carbon monoxide is a highly poisonous gas.
Technicians also check the wires in your furnace, inspecting them to see if they are loose or broken. This can be a fire hazard. Additionally, they can spot corrosion.

Maintains the Furnace’s Warranty

Furnace warranties include legal language stating that the warranty is void if the furnace isn’t regularly maintained. When you get your annual tune-up, just keep the paperwork in case you need service under warranty.
