With regular, timely furnace maintenance, you can prevent a host of serious issues from occurring.
Energy Bill Increases
Heating systems not properly maintained will not operate as efficiently as systems that receive regular maintenance. Neglected heating systems need to work harder to heat your home, resulting in more energy use and higher energy bills. Keeping a system operating smoothly using minimal energy, through scheduled seasonal maintenance.
Expensive System Repairs
Many homeowners delay furnace maintenance, or avoid altogether to save money. However, when maintenance or small issues are overlooked, they lead to added stress on the system and often leaving the homeowner with costly repairs later.
Decreased Furnace Lifespan
A well-maintained furnace can last 15 years or more. However, when neglected and pushed to their limits, these systems are more prone to complete breakdowns, especially during harsh winter weather. This unfortunate event could leave your family without heat when it’s most needed, leaving you waiting in line for a new installation.
Frozen Pipes and Water Damage
Winter can bring about a host of issues for homeowners, including frozen and burst pipes. If your heating system fails during the coldest months of the year, problems can quickly escalate. A broken furnace can lead to frozen pipes and significant water damage in your home in a matter of hours.
Carbon Monoxide Risk
One of the main concerns of furnace heat exchangers is the possibility of developing cracks due to temperature changes. The consequences of overlooking this issue can be dire as colorless, odorless carbon monoxide gas can leak and pose a serious threat to the safety of your household. Fortunately, this problem can be easily detected through a simple furnace safety inspection.
Compromised indoor air quality
Indoor air quality can become poor. Excess dust, allergens, and pollutants can circulate, leading to health problems. Although not as concerning as carbon monoxide dangers, maintaining good air quality is essential for your health and well-being.
Neglected furnaces can be hazardous, with loose or worn wires, pilot light problems, and other issues that can lead to fires or even explosions. Fortunately, these safety concerns can be minimized through regularly scheduled maintenance.
