Now that we’ve entered November, temperatures here in Fresno are starting to cool down, and fall is officially here. If you haven’t yet, now’s the best time to schedule a furnace inspection before winter arrives. In this blog post, we’ll review just some of the benefits of calling Allbritten for a fall furnace tune-up.
5 reasons to schedule a furnace inspection
Waiting until the start of the winter season to schedule a furnace inspection is not a wise move. You could save a lot of trouble later down the road by getting a tune-up before the arrival of truly cold weather.
Here are the 5 big benefits of a furnace tune-up for your home:
#1. Prevent costly repairs
A tune-up of the furnace during the fall will prevent costly repairs. Minor faults, if not caught early, can result in a breakdown of the furnace. These faults will cause the furnace to strain when generating heating, eventually resulting in a major problem with the device.
A professional furnace tune-up from Allbritten can ensure that your heating system is in operating order prior to the start of winter, which decreases your likelihood of needing heating repairs. That’s peace of mind.
#2. Cut your energy bills
A furnace inspection and tune-up will also help you to cut your energy bills. Regular furnace maintenance will ensure that the heating device operates properly without drawing extra energy. If the furnace is not maintained properly, it will strain to generate heat and use extra power to heat the room. This can result in increased energy bills.
Having a professional from Allbritten inspect your furnace before winter arrives can help you save on your energy bills all season long.
#3. Extend your system’s lifespan
Another benefit of a regular fall furnace tune-up is that it can result in extended lifespan of the unit. If our technician finds a problem with your system, we’ll find a way to address the issue so that it doesn’t cause long-term damage to your system.
Fixing even the most minor faults can help reduce the strain your system endures on a nightly basis. Added up across an entire winter, and then multiple winters, you can see how maintenance can extend your system’s life.
#4. Keep your system’s warranty intact
In many cases, an annual furnace inspection is necessary to keep the manufacturer’s warranty intact. Even those who don’t require it recommend that your furnace be maintained to keep it from failing.
To keep the warranty, it’s important that you call Allbritten for regular maintenance. Or, you could join our Guardian Maintenance Club!
#5. Ensure the safe operation of your heating system
The foremost benefit of a fall furnace tune-up is that it will keep the household family members safe from carbon monoxide. During our furnace inspection and tune-up, our technician will inspect the gas burner, heat exchanger, and supply line. They will calibrate the gas valve to ensure safe operation.
