While it may not be the first thing that homeowners think about, a furnace tune-up is something that should be scheduled every year. It’s the one thing you can do that will help prevent an emergency furnace breakdown. Not getting a tune-up could quickly turn into an expensive proposition involving major furnace repair that will soon be followed by waves of regret. There are actually many benefits that come with getting a furnace tune-up:
Efficiency That Saves Money
Furnace tune-ups keep your system running smoothly and efficiently. Having a more efficient running furnace helps lower utility bills, which means more money in your pockets.
Tune-Ups Keep You Safe and Sound
Having your furnace checked out will ensure that potentially dangerous scenarios don’t develop in the future. These could manifest in a variety of ways: electrical issues that could lead to a fire, gas leaks that could literally blow up a home or carbon monoxide poisoning.
Catching Small Problems before They Become Big Problems
Byspotting small issues like loose parts, parts that need to be lubricated, dirty parts, electrical wiring, etc. before they cause breakdowns, you’ll not only avoid freezing while you wait for repairs, but you’ll also save money by keeping small problems from becoming major repairs with major costs.
Warranties Remain in Effect
Many homeowners don’t realize it, but most manufacturer warranties will be null and void if you don’t have annual tune-ups performed on your system. Imagine a major repair not being covered because you failed to have regular maintenance done on your furnace. It’s well worth the money and effort to keep that manufacturer warranty intact.
Preventative Maintenance Agreements Are Well Worth the Money
Many people wouldn’t bat an eye about getting preventative maintenance on their car like oil changes, tire rotations, etc. You should think of your furnace and AC the same way. The easiest way to make sure you don’t forget to schedule regular tune-ups is to sign up for City Wide Heating and Cooling’s Preventative Maintenance Agreement (PMA). Besides the benefits mentioned above, some key advantages for the PMA customer are that you’ll receive priority service over those without the maintenance agreement. Two tune-ups per year (both air conditioner and furnace checks), as well as indoor air quality maintenance. Finally, you’ll get a 10 percent discount when it comes to parts and labor on any repairs. Put those all together, and they add up to peace of mind that you really can’t put a price on.
