3 Ways Furnace Maintenance Can Save You Money

If there is nothing currently wrong with your furnace, you might be wondering, “Why should I get professional furnace maintenance?” 

This is a reasonable question, especially if you are trying to save money.  What you might not realize is that professional furnace maintenance is a good investment. Here are 3 ways that furnace maintenance can save you money:

Energy Efficiency

Complex machines need regular tune-ups in order to run efficiently.  Much like improving you car’s gar mileage, a tune-up can improve your furnace's energy mileage.  Furnace maintenance can get more ‘bang for your buck’ and reduce your energy consumption.  On average, your heat accounts for 25% of your energy costs, so you can imagine how much you’ll save by improving your furnace’s energy efficiency.

Prevent Breakdowns, Repair, and Improve Lifespan

To use the car metaphor again: can you imagine how long your car would last if you never got a tune-up?  It probably wouldn’t last nearly as long as a well-oiled, well-maintained machine.  The same goes for your furnace.  Getting a regular tune-up can help you avoid costly repairs, avoid emergency breakdowns, and allow your heating system to last much longer before you'll be forced to pay for an expensive replacement.

Prevent Voiding Your Warranty

Most warranties contain a clause that requires regular maintenance on your furnace in order for them to honor the warranty.  Imagine how devastating it would be to feel secure knowing your broken-down furnace is under warranty, only to discover you overlooked the fact that you required annual maintenance!  Check your furnace’s warranty to find out exactly what is required in order for you to be covered for your repairs.
