Improper Heating Maintenance Can Stir Up These Issues

 

The hot desert weather in the Valley of the Sun means that many homeowners often neglect to think about their heating systems until the moment they need them. Although this is understandable, since heaters receive far less use during the year than air conditioners, it’s still unwise to leave any important part of a house without regular care.

If you let your heater—whether it’s a furnace, radiant system, or heat pump—go without an annual professional inspection and tune-ups, you can encounter unpleasant, inconvenient, and expensive problems. Investing in a regular maintenance program, like The Good Guys Club from Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning, will help you avoid troublesome issues that require heating repairs.

Here are troubles you may encounter if your heater is not properly maintained:

Safety concerns: A heater that is improperly maintained can turn into a safety hazard. This is especially true for gas-powered furnaces, one of the most common types of home heaters. If a furnace goes without professional maintenance, gas leaks and cracks in the heat exchanger may escape notice. You don’t want to risk exposure to toxic gases or a possible explosion. During an inspection, a technician will catch any troubles that might lead to safety hazards.

Energy-inefficient operation: A properly maintained heater is an efficient heater. If your heating system starts to wear down because it hasn’t received regular tune-ups, it will begin to drain excess power to reach its target temperature. You’ll experience higher bills, and the heater will start to age faster from overwork.

Frequent repairs: One of the main reasons to get maintenance on any machine is to prevent it from needing repairs later. A heater that hasn’t gotten proper maintenance will be much more prone to malfunctions and breakdowns. Hiring professionals to do regular check-ups and tune-ups will save you money in the long-term because you’ll have to schedule fewer repair visits.

Reduced system lifespan: All of the above issues flow together into one major trouble: a heating system that hasn’t been properly maintained will need to be replaced sooner than one that has gotten regular maintenance visits. Don’t let your heater wear down faster than it should; get experts in at least once a year to keep it running at its best.
