Your air conditioning system has been keeping your home cool all summer long while your furnace has been sitting there anxiously awaiting winter. Furnace neglect can cause your furnace to develop problems that can lead to costly repairs down the road. Furnace maintenance prior to colder months is critical to the longevity and efficiency of your heating system.
Importance of Furnace Maintenance
When your furnace sits during warmer months, it’s important to schedule routine furnace maintenance before really cold months, when your furnace runs non-stop. A furnace system can wear itself out, pump carbon monoxide into your home, or just completely stop working. Other common problems include:
- Dirt buildup
- Cracks in the body of the system
- Loose ductwork due to thermal expansion and contraction
- Blower motor bearings that need lubrication
- Dirty air filters
- Dirt and dust on fan blades and condenser coils
- Loose blower belt
- Blocked condensate drain
When you have an early tune-up done on your furnace, you are not only eliminating these potential problems but you are also making sure your furnace is running at peak efficiency. Added efficiency will lower your utility bills—who doesn’t like saving money! Monitoring your furnace’s performance and condition will help you to enjoy it longer and lesser your chances for an expensive breakdown.
