PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

Preventative Maintenance has value for systems of all ages.  Energy star recommends  annual maintenance on your HVAC system and the Department of Energy agrees about the importance of maintaining your furnace.  And there are a few good reasons for that:

Prolonged Life.  Replacing your furnace and/or cooling unit is expensive.  And you can’t show it off to your friends once it’s done (unless they are HVAC enthusiasts like us).  Being able to maximize your investment and extend the life of your furnace makes good financial sense.

Improved Performance.  “Fine-tuned engine” is a phrase that needs no explanation.  A clean furnace runs more efficiently, which will lower your energy usage and reduce the amount of wear and tear on your components.

Early Identification of Issues.  Furnaces and other complex machines tend to break down when worked their hardest (think the coldest day of the year or the big Christmas party you’re hosting with the door opening and closing a lot).  I’d much prefer to identify a potential issue that would shut down my furnace on a fall Tuesday afternoon than on the coldest day of the year, or the night of a big gathering at my place.  You can also identity any potential health issues that may be infiltrating your home, such as a cracked heat exchanger or issues with venting that could let the noxious by products of burning a furnace into your home.

Regular maintenance will also maintain your warranty.  You can read of many instances where your warranty could be voided if there isn’t a documented maintenance program in place for your equipment.
