WHY IS FURNACE MAINTENANCE IMPORTANT?

Your furnace works hard to keep your Raleigh-Durham area home warm and cozy throughout heating season, but if you’re like most homeowners, you don’t give it much thought until it stops working, or your energy bills go through the roof. The best way to avoid mid-season breakdowns and ensure the efficient performance of your furnace each winter is with furnace maintenance from Comfort Services Heating & Cooling. Scheduling this vital service each fall before you turn your furnace on has a number of important benefits, that you can’t afford to be without.

WHAT IS FURNACE MAINTENANCE?

Annual preventive maintenance each fall, can prevent a number of issues with the performance and operation of your furnace. Maintenance services include:

  • Inspection – A certified technician will perform a visual and point inspection to check all moving parts, and identify those which are showing wear and tear.
  • Lubrication – Lubrication of all moving parts, to reduce friction.
  • Adjustment –  Pilot or gas pressure may need adjusting.
  • Replacement – The air filter will be cleaned or replaced. Continue with air filter replacements throughout heating season, changing every four to six weeks as needed.
  • Assessment – You’ll receive a written assessment of the condition of your furnace, and suggestions for any upcoming work that may be needed.

FEWER REPAIRS

During furnace maintenance, the technician will diagnose and repair minor concerns before they can become costly repairs. Issues that remain undetected for prolonged periods of time can lead to system failure and replacement, cause discomfort, and threaten the safety of your home and family.

INCREASED EFFICIENCY

A clean, well-tuned furnace performs at peak efficiency, saving you money on the cost of heating your home.

SAFETY

With any fuel burning appliance, including your furnace, incomplete combustion can lead to a deadly buildup of carbon monoxide, placing your entire family at risk. A furnace that is dirty, malfunctioning, or needs replacement may produce greater amounts of carbon monoxide than one which is regularly and professionally maintained. Loose or faulty connections can lead to sparks or system failure, and are inspected as part of annual maintenance.

IMPROVED INDOOR AIR QUALITY

As conditioned air moves throughout your HVAC system, dirt, dust, pollen, dander, mold spores, and other fine particulate move along with it. If your air filter or other system components are dirty, these particles can make their way in to your indoor air, causing health issues in those who suffer from allergies or asthma, or have compromised or weakened immune systems.

INCREASED EQUIPMENT LIFESPAN

Regular maintenance can add years on to the lifespan of your furnace, through reduced wear and tear on parts.
