How Routine Furnace Maintenance Benefits You

 

hello-winterChances are that, if you have read this blog before, you know that we often stress the importance of routine HVAC maintenance. Today, we’re going to take the opportunity to tell you about the ways that routine furnace maintenance can benefit you. If you use a furnace to keep your home warm and cozy throughout the winter season, then you definitely need to schedule your furnace tune-up with a member of our team. Mild winters are no excuse for overlooking this vital service in Nevada.

When a furnace is properly sized for your home and expertly installed therein, you can expect a good performance from that system—to a point. Even the best furnace that is a perfect fit for your home will falter in its operation if you fail to have it tuned up annually by a trained professional. The fact that your furnace in Las Vegas doesn’t see as much use as your AC does not mean you can skip tune-ups.

Can I Tune Up My Own Furnace?

Only if you happen to be a professional heating technician, which we’re guessing is not the case since you are reading this right now. We know that there are a lot of very capable homeowners out there, but the simple fact of the matter is that certain jobs require professional skill and expertise. Tuning up a furnace effectively and safely is one of them.

There are a couple of basic maintenance tasks that you can handle for yourself, though. Make sure that you change your air filter as needed, in order to reduce the risk of excessive airflow resistance. You can also maintain a clean area free of obstructions around the furnace cabinet in your home.

What Does a Tune-Up Entail?

Tuning up a furnace is a very meticulous job. Airflow should be checked, the burner assembly or electric heating elements may need to be cleaned, moving parts must be lubricated, electrical contacts tested, thorough cleaning of components completed, safety devices tested, and much more. It’s not as simple as sticking a vacuum hose in there or blasting away dust with compressed air, and that is why you need to call in a professional.

What Are the Benefits?

We cannot overstate how beneficial tuning your furnace up on an annual basis really is. When your system is properly maintained, it is going to function at peak performance levels. You are going to be able to heat your home successfully, and you are going to be able to do so reliably. A well-maintained system is a much more dependable system than one that is not tuned-up regularly.

You can also expect your furnace to function more efficiently than it otherwise would when you have it professionally tuned up. Our winters may be mild, but that doesn’t mean that we should settle for paying more than is necessary to heat our homes during the season. Let Goettl Air Conditioning Las Vegas help you to get the best that your furnace has to offer.
