Summer is officially over as most of you have noted by our cooler fall weather. As winter quickly approaches, you might want to consider getting a Precision-Tune up on your heating system. There are several reasons why you should consider having this service done before the harsh weather arrives.
Ensure that your equipment is operating safely.
During the tune-up, the technician will inspect the electrical components and heat exchanger. Your gas or propane furnace has a heat exchanger that must have an airtight seal to separate the gasses from the breathing air passing over the outside surface. Having incomplete combustion or a crack in the heat exchanger can cause your home to have dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Having a tune-up will increase your unit's efficiency. Your technician will clean and adjust many internal and important parts of your furnace or heat pump. He will also inspect and verify safeties, temperatures, pressures and proper airflow. Having your unit run optimally during the peak season will save you money on utility costs.
Help reduce future repairs and prolongs the life of your equipment.
Nothing would be more frustrating than having your furnace or heat pump unexpectedly fail during the cold of winter and incurring an expensive repair. Preventative maintenance is just that, by having a technician maintain and service your equipment, the service will help prevent potential problems down the road.
