You have many expenses associated with maintaining your home in Sharpsburg, MD. The inevitable question is which ones are actually worth the cost you’ll incur. Here’s why fall furnace maintenance is worth every penny you’ll invest:
Furnace repairs can range from simple and inexpensive to costs that’ll make just about anyone blush. Neglecting maintenance on your system increases strain, leading its components to wear out prematurely. By investing in routine fall furnace maintenance, you reduce the strain, making the components last longer.
Lower Energy Expenses
As your system ages, its efficiency naturally declines, resulting in slowly climbing energy bills. Wearing components and airflow restrictions in your system are the common culprits of this increase.
During a maintenance visit, a service technician will clean your system, allowing air to flow freely. They’ll also ensure all components are operating optimally, keeping your system at peak efficiency.
Longer Service Life
With proper maintenance, the average furnace will have an effective service life of 15 to 20 years. However, due to the strain neglect brings, your system may have years cut off its service life without proper maintenance. When you start cutting the service life, you dramatically increase the annual cost of your furnace.
When you think about the cost of maintenance, consider the cost of furnace repairs. Normally, a manufacturer’s warranty would cover premature failures. However, those manufacturers understand how important maintenance is to preventing strain-related repairs.
That’s why most manufacturers make professional maintenance a term of their warranty. Trying to cut a little expense now may mean you’re stuck with a massive bill later.
