When is the last time your furnace had a tune-up? If your answer is longer than a year ago, you could be losing money. Your furnace can account for half of your entire energy bill – which adds up, especially during the colder months. If left too long without maintenance, your furnace runs less efficiently, which means more dollars spent to keep you warm this winter. In fact, studies have shown savings of up to 30% on heating bills with regular furnace tune-ups.
What Happens During a Tune-Up?
After you schedule your tune-up with Arctic Heating and Cooling, our expert technician will:
- Check your heating system to ensure it is receiving the proper airflow. This prevents additional strain on your furnace, which often leads to repairs down the road or even shorten the lifespan of your investment.
- Test for problems in the combustion process. Your furnace burns fuel in order to produce heat, leading to the possibility of gas leaks or increased levels of carbon monoxide. Regular tune-ups lower the risks to you and your family.
- Clean it up. Keeping your home warm is dirty work for your furnace, so your tune-up includes cleaning as well as inspection.
Better Safe Than Sorry
Your heating system is a big investment, and keeping it well-maintained ensures your biggest return on that investment, not to mention peace of mind that you’re not at risk for dangerous gas leaks. This goes especially for furnaces under warranty, as many manufacturers require consistent upkeep or else the warranty risks being voided. Plus, a well kept furnace means less of a chance of waking up to a freezing house in the middle of winter. The up front costs of a furnace tune-up are minimal compared to unexpected and expensive repairs in the future, so call Arctic Heating and Cooling in Crystal Lake, IL to schedule yours today!
