With the arrival of fall, now’s the perfect time to schedule furnace maintenance in your Mokena, IL, home. Getting your furnace checked prevents severe problems, minimizing the frequency of heating system failure. Here are four benefits of professional furnace maintenance during the fall:
Longer Furnace Life
Your home’s furnace is a pretty expensive investment. Just like your car, the heating system needs professional maintenance to ensure it lasts longer.
Neglecting furnace maintenance reduces the heating system’s lifespan and efficiency by at least half. With routine maintenance, your furnace will stay functional for more than 15 years.
Typically, your heating system is responsible for approximately 50% of your monthly energy bills. Neglecting your furnace causes the heating system to strain, consuming more power.
During fall maintenance, the HVAC service technician will clean and fix broken and cracked furnace parts. Lubricating the furnace components ensures they run smoothly, promoting optimal efficiency. Additionally, it’s more economical when our service technicians can fix potential furnace problems before they become serious issues.
Healthier Indoor Air
Aside from keeping you warm, a well-maintained furnace also boosts your home’s air quality. Over time, the furnace collects debris, which later circulate in your home’s atmosphere. Other harmful irritants that could accumulate in your heating system include pollen, dust and tiny fur particles.
During maintenance, our service technicians clean all heating system components, preventing the circulation of these pollutants. Our service technicians will also replace your furnace filters to ensure high-quality air filtration.
Failing to take care of your furnace could create several safety hazards for your house. Crevices along the heat exchanger allow carbon monoxide leaks, which could be fatal. Carbon monoxide leaks could also arise from improper installation.
Loose and incorrect wiring could lead to fire accidents. Statistics show that at least 500 deaths have occurred in five years due to furnace problems. Therefore, don’t make the mistake of ignoring fall furnace maintenance.
You want to make sure that your heating system is well prepared to last during the fall and winter months. Our service technicians have all the skills and qualifications to handle your home’s furnace. Contact Climate Master Mechanical Contractors, Inc. today for your HVAC needs this fall.
