Winter is here, and the harsh weather in New York can mean there are cold months ahead. Furnace maintenance is the key to keeping your family warm and safe all winter long. The last thing anyone wants is for their heat to go out on one of the coldest days of the year, so it is vital to schedule an inspection with an HVAC specialist before it is too late.
A skilled heating and cooling technician can perform the yearly tasks that keep your furnace running efficiently and detect any potential issues that may be looming ahead. Consider these reasons to have your furnace inspected today.
- Air filter care. Your furnace’s air filters should be cleaned or replaced frequently to maintain healthy air quality in your home and keep your furnace functioning efficiently. Your furnace technician can do this for you and give you tips to keep up with the chore.
- Increase your energy efficiency. Just as dirt and dust build up in your air filters, it also tends to collect on moving parts of your furnace. This inhibits the efficiency of your furnace over time and costs you more on your utility bills.
- Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is extremely dangerous because it is colorless and odorless. If your heat exchanger becomes cracked, it can allow carbon monoxide to escape into your home. A proper inspection can identify and fix this problem before it creates a dangerous situation for your family.
- Increase the longevity of your furnace. Regular maintenance helps keep your furnace functioning at its best throughout its lifetime. Keeping up with maintenance and repairs can also extend your furnace’s life expectancy and save you money on replacement.
