Your Furnace: Why Regular Maintenance is So Important

January 31, 2017

Regular Furnace Maintenance When it comes to your furnace, you almost never think about it, and that’s because it’s doing its job. As long as it keeps you warm and comfortable it is easy to never give much thought to maintenance. After all, the saying “out of sight, out of mind” definitely applies to a furnace, and as long as there is nothing wrong with the ambient temperature of your home or office, there is nothing to remind you of the furnace working away in the bowels of the building.

However, you need to remember that a furnace is just like any other piece of highly-sensitive machinery. It needs maintenance, and it needs it on a regular basis. Think about it: you would never dream of driving your car for two or three years without an oil change—at least not if you want the thing to keep running—so why would you expect your furnace to operate any differently?

Regular maintenance can alert you to problems before they become big trouble

When it comes to machines, many people are baffled. All they know is that they throw a switch, the machine lumbers into life, and things are great. Until things aren’t so great, and suddenly they’re hit with an expensive repair bill.

The thing is, regular maintenance can help avoid these unpleasant surprises. In fact, a trained technician has a very good chance of spotting trouble when it’s still in its infancy. This means that the small amount you pay for a service call can more than make up for itself. By identifying a future issue and repairing it before it becomes a major problem, you save money.

Regular maintenance will prolong the life of your furnace

Just like a car will run better with a regular oil change, so too will your furnace last longer with proper maintenance. It’s just the way machines work: they can continue to operate in less than optimal conditions, but it shortens their lives. Keep your furnace maintained, and it will last you longer.

Maintenance will increase the efficiency of your furnace

As if the idea of saving money on repairs and early replacements weren’t enough motivation, servicing your furnace on a regular basis has short-term effects, too. A properly maintained furnace will cost less to operate than a neglected one.
