While you switch on your furnace to stay comfortable during this winter weather, you are also mindful of the need to save money. Keeping your living spaces warm and comfortable is important, but you also don’t want to be shell shocked when your home heating bill arrives.
But you can enjoy the double benefit of ensuring the optimal operation of your furnace with regular maintenance service and save money in the process. Ensuring the efficient operation of your home heating system with proper maintenance will give you the peace of mind of knowing you are less likely to encounter furnace breakdowns. You save money with fewer service calls because you keep your furnace in good working order.
Importance of Heating Maintenance
Preventative maintenance should be done at least twice a year. Schedule maintenance of your heating system in the fall and for your cooling system in the spring.
Keep in mind that every home has its unique energy needs, and it is vital to make sure your heating system is operating at maximum efficiency while providing ultimate comfort in all your living spaces.
Basic maintenance includes a deep clean within the heating unit, filter change, lubrication of moving parts, and testing of system controls and thermostats. Also, all electrical connections should be tightened.
Here are just some examples of the money-saving benefits of routine maintenance for your furnace.
Benefits of Routine Furnace Maintenance
Lower Monthly Bills
As your furnace accumulates dust and dirt during the summer months, annual maintenance during the fall helps ensure your furnace runs in top condition. It also prevents future mechanical problems that can cause your system to work harder, costing you more money on your utility bills.
Reduce Repair Costs
Whether it’s tightening loose components to lubricating moving parts, a furnace inspection is an opportunity for your Apollo field technicians to fix any small problems before they become worse and lead to major, costly furnace repairs.
Prevent a Costly, Premature Replacement
Ignoring regular maintenance is almost guaranteed to reduce years off the life of your heating system. Furnaces usually last 15 to 20 years when properly maintained. Annual service gives you much more value for your furnace with fewer repair bills.
Increase Lifespan of Your Unit
An additional benefit of routine heating system maintenance is the potential to extend the life of your furnace equipment. Your skilled technician at Apollo will detect small problems before they become larger issues that can run down your furnace, causing it to work harder and cost you more money.
After enduring wear and tear, your heating system will eventually begin to deteriorate. Moving parts tend to wear down after many years as your heating system works harder to warm your house. But twice-year maintenance is an ideal way to slow down that wearing down process. When you have Apollo maintenance your unit, you have the peace of mind of knowing that it will run at maximum efficiency for more years. This can save you a considerable amount of money on your monthly utility bills.
