You can feel it in the air: fall isn’t far away. While it may still be pretty warm here in Lee’s Summit, the air has started its begrudgingly slow shift into autumn. With shorter, cooler, and — eventually colder — days not far ahead, now is an excellent time to have the experts from Comfort Pros come out and take a good look at your furnace and heating system. In case you haven’t picked up on it from our previous blog on furnace maintenance, we’re sticklers for keeping an eye on your furnace to ensure it’s working properly.
Often, it can seem like your furnace might be operating okay, but that soft, background rattle may be more than just your aging furnace creaking into action. If you’re concerned your furnace might be on its way out or — as we always recommend — you’re looking to have a pair of experienced eyes take a look to make sure nothing’s going wrong with your furnace, take a look below for some of the top reasons we believe you should schedule regular furnace maintenance.
Reason Number Three: Save Money In Both the Short- and Long-Run
It’s no secret that furnace replacement (or, any major home repair) can cost quite a bit. However, if you suspect your furnace might be on the fritz, don’t wait to give us a call. If you’re hearing some strange sounds such as rattling, humming, buzzing, clicking, or droning, there’s a good chance that your furnace is in need of repair. If this is the case, having us come in sooner rather than later to take a look at your furnace is a good call; preventative maintenance is one of the best ways to avoid escalating replacement costs. But, if it comes to pass that you’re in need of furnace replacement, we’ve got you covered.
Reason Number Two: Cut Down On Heating Costs
Here’s a quandary that can have serious financial implications: your furnace is working. . . but it’s working much harder than it needs to in order to pump out enough heat to adequately warm your home. There can be a number of reasons this is the case. But whatever the reason, the outcome is certain: you’re going to feel it when you get your heating bill. So, even if you feel your furnace might be in fine shape but you haven’t used it since this past winter, it’s not a bad idea to get the Pros in there to investigate.
Reason Number One: Longevity
Few of us enjoy taking the trek to the doctor. Whether we fear less-than-ideal news or we just don’t like the hassle, we know it’s a good idea to continue with regular checkups. Same goes for your furnace but, in this case, the “doctors” come to you! Even if your furnace only needs minor tune-ups or part replacements, having regular maintenance done to it lowers your chances of it failing out of nowhere and being in the unsavory position of needing a new furnace in the depths of December. If you think your furnace could benefit from an inspection from the pros at Comfort Pros, give us a call today to schedule your next furnace repair.
