If your furnace was rated at 96% efficient when it came out of the box, do not assume that this is how efficient it will be forever. Instead, that number can quickly drop and end up costing a lot of money – which not only increases your energy bills but also means that you are not as eco-friendly as you could be. Cleaning and maintenance ensure that your furnace does not have excess dust and dirt clogging up the system.
If your furnace has not been cleaned and dirt has been allowed to accumulate, then you could experience all sorts of comfort issues. Your furnace might be slow to heat up, or it might be turning out dirty air. When you have your furnace cleaned, you can have your home heated more quickly and more evenly.
Trust us when we tell you that maintenance is generally much more affordable than having a furnace breakdown. According to experts, 90% of all furnace breakdowns could have been prevented or caught early if they had been properly maintained. When you have a skilled professional taking care of your system on a yearly basis, we can replace worn parts before they fail completely.
If you have your furnace cleaned, oiled, and maintained on schedule, then it will not only perform better, but it is likely to perform longer. A good furnace that is properly maintained should last for 20 or 25 years – as the manufacturer promises. Do not reduce that timeframe by avoiding maintenance.
Whether your furnace is gas or electric, a leak can cause serious hazards that could put your life and the lives of others at risk. Having your furnace checked and maintained each year to make sure the pilot lights are working and that all wiring is working well can help keep your furnace operating correctly and safely.
Not all, but many, manufacturers require that you get annual service to keep your warranty valid. The last thing you want is to skip service, have an issue, and find that your warranty is not valid. Manufacturers are not trying to trick you or be mean, they just know that if a furnace is not well maintained, then it is not going to last as long as it should.
If you are ready to have your furnace serviced, contact Econo West at 661-947-2653 to make an appointment.
