furnace tune up

Even though it’s a little early to start flipping on your furnace and bumping up the thermostat (heck, we are still experiencing 80 degree weather even in October), it’s never too early to schedule your first fall furnace tune-up. Before you click back, just think about it – your furnace has been sitting dormant all summer long (possibly even since last spring), so why not make sure that when it comes to kicking out the cold, your heater is ready for the job? To avoid a day of teeth-chattering and shivering, we recommend taking action now. Here are seven reasons to schedule your furnace tune up today.

1. Keep the warranty intact

Your furnace most likely came with a warranty. If that warranty is still valid, however, you will actually keep it serviced regularly in order to maintain your warranty. If you lapse and neglect to have your annual tune-up performed for more than a couple of years, good luck trying to get your manufacturer to cover any faulty parts later on.

2. Improve efficiency

By giving your furnace regular tune-ups, you’re essentially improving it’s overall performance. A certified furnace technician will assess all aspects of your heater, performing big and small scale adjustments that will boost the overall efficiency and allow your furnace to run at its best.

3. Save money every month

Because you are improving the efficiency of your furnace, you’re also helping to reduce your monthly heating bill. The better your furnace runs, the less often it will have to turn on – and the less money you fork out to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.

4. Prevent worse problems

At Irish Heating and Air, we are big on preventative maintenance – and we want our clients to be, too. Preventative maintenance is critical if you want to keep your furnace running better for longer. It will also save you money in the long run. By investing in a furnace tune-up today, you’re allowing our technicians more time to catch any of the smaller problems before they become bigger, and possibly more dangerous, ones.

5. Prolong the life of your furnace

An annual tune-up is an investment in the longevity of your furnace. By keeping your heater in perfect working order each year, you are increasing both its efficiency and its longevity. No one likes shelling out a thousand dollars for a new furnace, so it’s in your best interest to invest in annual furnace tuneups.

6. Keep your home safe

One of the biggest reasons to schedule your furnace tune-up today is that it keeps your home safe. Not only is it not safe to live in a home that won’t get above 50 degrees in winter (especially if you have elderly or young children in the home), but your furnace can also become a serious fire hazard. The pilot light runs on gas, and even a minor gas leak can spell disaster for your home. Your furnace can also leak carbon monoxide if not properly cared for, which is a silent, but equally deadly killer.

7. Peace of mind

Lastly, by scheduling your furnace tune-up today, you are giving yourself the peace of mind knowing that in a few weeks, when the cold weather sets in, your furnace will start right up. You won’t’ have to schedule any last minute emergency furnace repairs, you won’t need to take time off work to wait around for a furnace technician to show up, and you won’t have to pay top dollar for a weekend service call. Do the smart thing and call your furnace repair provider today.

So there you have it – our seven top reasons to schedule your home’s furnace tune-up today. If you thought we were crazy, or jumping the gun, we hope that you now understand just how important it is to invest in annual tune-ups for your heater.
