Winter has arrived in full force in many parts of the country. Unfortunately, if you didn’t keep up with furnace maintenance throughout the year, you may be sitting in your living room feeling frigid instead of warm and toasty. Properly maintaining your heater is important for several reasons, including:
It Increases the Life Span
When you don’t maintain your heater properly, it is likely to break down more often. Although you can make repairs as necessary, each time a breakdown occurs, it does a bit of irreversible damage. Eventually, lack of maintenance will cause your unit to break down for good, leaving you to pay the price of replacement much sooner than you expected. Proper maintenance ensures your unit lasts for years to come.
It Saves Money
Paying the small fee to properly maintain your heater each year is much more desirable than the money you’d spend on an unkempt unit. Even if your heater doesn’t cost money in the form of a repairs or replacement, it won’t work as efficiently as it could. An inefficient unit will run more often and cause your utility bills to rise.
It Ensures Your Safety
A unit that isn’t properly maintained could be housing safety issues without you realizing it. In addition to the risk of fire or even explosion, a poorly maintained unit could be releasing carbon monoxide into your home. This dangerous gas could make your family sick or even cause death.
