5 Reasons to Tune-up Your Furnace in the Spring
As winter winds down, people in the Mile High City will be giving their furnaces a break as warm weather reappears across Colorado. However, just because the weather is warming up doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be thinking about your furnace anymore. In fact, the spring and fall months are some of the best times to call Fix-It 24/7 and give your furnace a tune-up. A spring furnace tune-up will give your system the checkup it needs after a long winter of warming your home and guarantee that it’s in the best shape possible for you the next time you need it. Here at Fix-It 24/7, we recommend getting your furnace tuned up at least once a year. So why schedule a spring furnace tune-up?
5 reasons to have a spring furnace tune-up today:
Whether you use a furnace or boiler to heat your home, heating systems accumulate dust and other particles. All of that debris can negatively affect the efficiency and performance of your furnace. When your furnace is working harder, it can cause a spike in your utility bills. When technicians from Fix-It 24/7 give your furnace a tune-up, they’ll give it a thorough cleaning to prevent such issues.
Less risk of failure.
You might not know it, but certain parts of your furnace may be on their last legs as winter ends. If you leave your furnace unchecked until next winter, there’s a good chance it’ll break early on when you need it. You don’t want to have your furnace break in the middle of sub-zero temperatures! Call us to make sure your furnace is up to snuff for next winter.
Cheaper than a major repair.
If you’re balking at the thought of paying for a tune-up, consider this. If your furnace breaks down and needs emergency service, it’s going to cost a lot of money. On the other hand, the preventative maintenance we perform during a spring furnace tune-up costs much less. Make the smart choice and have us take a look at your system before it has a total breakdown.
In order to produce heat, furnaces have to burn some sort of fuel. This combustion process can cause problems if something is wrong with your furnace. Gas could leak into the house, carbon monoxide could be released, or your furnace could start a fire. Don’t take a chance with your safety and schedule maintenance to check all heating components.
Maintain your warranty.
If your furnace is under manufacturer warranty, it’s a good idea to have it regularly checked. Many manufacturer warranties state that they will become void if the furnace doesn’t get regularly maintained. Having one of our expert technicians give your furnace a tune-up can uphold your warranty and ensure you’re covered.
