Important Steps To Take Before Turning on Your Furnace
During September and October, home comfort companies have some in-between times where they are free to do furnace tune-ups without much scheduling hassle. The air-conditioning season is over and temperatures aren’t quite cool enough to require a lot of home heating. This makes it the perfect time to get your furnace humming before the fall ends.
Preparation is Key
It’s better to nip a potential heating problem in the bud now instead of in the middle of our frigid winters! You should get your furnace running efficiently now so it’s ready to handle whatever the Canadian winter has in store for it. After the company is done with their inspection, cleaning, and maintenance, the odds of your furnace encountering a surprise problem are slim to none.
Furnaces Should Be Tuned Up Once a Year
You had a tune-up last year and your furnace has been humming without a problem ever since. You might wonder if getting another yearly tune-up is necessary since it’s running smoothly. The truth of the matter is that your furnace worked hard through the last winter and it was mostly dormant during the summer. Much like an automobile, your furnace needs to get regular maintenance to recover from the long periods of work and rest. Getting an annual tune-up also extends the life of your furnace, saving you money in the long run.
Common Furnace Problems
There are many common furnace problems that you can avoid by scheduling a tune-up with a furnace maintenance company. These issues include electrical problems, carbon monoxide leaks, venting problems, dirty burners, cracked heat exchangers and so on. A furnace is a delicate machine that has a lot of parts. It handles natural gas in your home and you want it running optimally in order to avoid freezing your family or worse, carbon monoxide poisoning.
