Why Fall is the Best Time For a Heating System Tuneup

It’s never too early to start thinking about winter and the cold temps that come along with it. Soon you’ll be switching on your furnace to stay comfortable during those chilly winter nights. That’s why it’s important to get your heating system tuned up now, before it gets too cold. This will give your HVAC technician in Roseville MI a chance to make necessary repairs so you won’t be without a working furnace for long.

Here’s why you should get your heater inspected as soon as fall hits.

Proper Airflow, Cleaner Air

Your furnace has a filter that removes dust, hair, dirt and other allergens. It needs to be cleaned and replaced on a regular basis to ensure it can work as intended. If it gets too clogged with dust, it won’t filter any more allergens and as a result your home’s air quality suffers. During a tuneup, your technician will ensure the filter is clean and that the blower is working properly.

Keep Your Family Safe

Carbon monoxide – dubbed the silent killer – is no joke. A malfunctioning heat pump or furnace is one of the top causes of carbon monoxide poisoning. Older furnaces can develop small cracks within the combustion chamber over time, which allows the deadly gas to leak into your home. Because you can’t smell carbon monoxide, it’s usually too late by the time you realize something is wrong. Your fall tuneup will include an inspection of the furnace for cracks.

Extend the Life of Your Furnace 

Annual cleaning and preventative maintenance goes a long way toward extending the life of your heater. You spent a lot of money on your furnace, so it stands to reason you want to get as much mileage out of it as possible. Getting a yearly inspection will help you save on repair bills and premature replacement of the unit.

Save Money on Heating Bills

Dirt that gathers within the heating unit reduces its efficiency by up to 40 percent. As a result, there’s a lower output of air, which makes your furnace run longer and harder. This not only results in higher heating bills, it strains your system and puts it at risk of the need for frequent  repairs.

Maintenance Costs Less Than Repair

It’s no secret that furnace replacement can amount to thousands of dollars. A fall tuneup costs a fraction of that and reduces the need for total replacement as well as emergency repairs.
