If you’re like most Carrollton, GA homeowners, you never quite reach the end of your weekly or monthly to-do list. Now that autumn has arrived, it’s time to make sure your furnace is ready to keep your home warm this winter. While it might be tempting to skip your annual furnace maintenance visit this year, doing that isn’t wise for your health, comfort, or budget.
Ensure Your Comfort
Just one simple call is all you need to make to arrange your annual furnace maintenance visit. Early to mid-autumn is an ideal time to schedule your furnace tune-up because there are many convenient appointment times available. Properly maintained furnaces ensure that heat is evenly distributed throughout your home, so each room will be comfortable. During your furnace tune-up, you can sit back and relax while the qualified service technician cleans, lubricates, and inspects the system for you.
Avoid an Unexpected Breakdown
Nobody wants to come home to a cold house in the middle of winter. During an annual furnace maintenance visit, our technicians perform a thorough inspection of each part of your furnace. This allows us to find parts that are worn or damaged. Arranging the tune-up now ensures that there’s plenty of time for worn-out parts to be replaced. The Indoor Air Quality Association states that up to 95% of furnace malfunctions can be prevented with an annual tune-up.
Receiving a sky-high utility bill is an unpleasant surprise. A well-maintained furnace burns gas more efficiently. You’ll enjoy lower monthly utility bills all winter long. You’ll also avoid the hassle and cost of emergency repairs. Properly maintained furnaces last longer than neglected heating systems, so you won’t incur the cost of a premature furnace replacement.
