Studies have shown that about 90% of furnaces that break down and need repair can be traced back to not being properly maintained. A lack of maintenance can also make your furnace less energy-efficient and keep it from offering you maximum benefits. That’s why we encourage both our commercial and residential clients to schedule furnace cleaning and maintenance. It can help you get the most from your furnace.
Is now the time to have your furnace cleaned and maintained?
Are you wondering if now is the right time to invest in furnace service? Obviously, if your furnace isn’t working well at all then you’ll know it’s time for furnace repair. But what about cleaning and maintenance? First, can you remember when the last time was that you had your furnace maintained? If the answer is no, then it’s time to call Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing so we can inspect, clean, and tune-up your furnace.
Reduce your energy usage
Do you know what your furnace was rated when it came out of the box? Know that this only refers to the furnace out of the box. If it’s rated at 96% efficient and you don’t have it cleaned or serviced on a regular schedule, then it’s not going to work as efficiently as it should. Call Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing for service and maintenance can help keep your utility bills low and reduce your carbon footprint.
Your furnace will be less likely to breakdown
As we mentioned above, about 90% of the time a furnace that breaks down does so because it wasn’t maintained properly. Let us come out and inspect your system on a yearly basis so we can replace worn parts before they damage the rest of your system.
You run your furnace because you want to be comfortable in your home. Yet if you don’t regularly maintain it, you could be dealing with the heat that’s slow to start up or uneven when it blows. Cleaning out a furnace keeps it working right and allows the air to get through to warm up your home unimpeded.
Ensure the safety of your home
Whether your furnace is gas or electrical, if it experiences problems then can result in serious health and safety hazards. Getting an annual check-up on your furnace gives you the confidence that pilot lights are working well, wiring is in good condition, and you’re not in undue danger.
You can use your furnace for the full 20 or 25 years
When we come out to maintain your furnace, we’ll oil it, clean it, and provide other maintenance as needed. This helps it to last as long as possible and to maximize the lifespan so you can get the 20-25 years of use that you should.
If you don’t know how long it’s been since your furnace had maintenance, or if it’s been more than a year, then now is the time to call Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing at (661) 947-2653 to make an appointment.
