Why it’s important to schedule seasonal furnace maintenance

Seasonal furnace maintenance tends to rank pretty low on most people’s list of important things to do in the fall. After all, children are starting school, the holidays are right around the corner, and life is hectic. Your furnace, on the other hand, is out-of-sight and out-of-mind.

However, getting a furnace checkup from the professionals at Ray & Son can not only save you money, but help you avoid emergency breakdowns in the winter. In this blog post, we’ll review why you should make a fall heating inspection your priority.

Here’s 5 reasons to schedule your seasonal furnace maintenance

Still not convinced about getting your heating system looked at this fall? Let’s work on changing your mind. Here are the five benefits of a heating tune-up:

1. Prevent emergency breakdowns

You use your furnace to stay warm during the winter. Like all mechanical systems, furnaces experience accelerated wear-and-tear when they are working the hardest.

However, furnaces can also be at risk for a breakdown when they’re turned on after a longer period of not being in use. Here in southern Georgia, that’s basically the entire spring and summer!

That’s why the best time for a checkup is in the fall before you turn the system on for the winter. (However, there’s no bad time for a tune-up if your system hasn’t had one in a long time!)

2. Get the most savings possible

Another benefit of scheduling heating maintenance during the fall is that you will be able to save more. A properly working furnace works efficiently without drawing extra power. That’s good for your energy bills and for your wallet.

To maximize your energy savings, schedule your furnace checkup in the fall. Our technicians will make sure your heating system is ready to operate at peak efficiency from the start, which means you have all winter to save.

3. Make sure your furnace is safe to operate

Safety is another reason why you should schedule heating maintenance during the fall. A malfunctioning furnace can pose a great risk. In some cases, a furnace that has a defect or problem can release carbon monoxide—a dangerous gas that is both colorless and odorless, making it difficult to detect.

For the best peace of mind, have the NATE-certified technicians at Ray & Son inspect your furnace before you turn that thermostat for the first time this fall.

4. Increase the lifespan of your furnace

Your heating system is a big part of your home—and a big investment. Protect it with regular maintenance from the pros at Ray & Son.

A furnace tune-up can actually help your furnace last longer and run better as it ages. Considering the cost of new furnace installation, any extra years you get out of your furnace is worth the cost of a tune-up.

5. Keep your home warm and comfortable

A properly tuned unit will work efficiently to maintain optimal winter comfort inside your home. The money paid to service the heating unit will be worth it as you will be able to enjoy a relaxed and comfortable environment inside your home.
