The Benefits of Having Your Furnace Serviced Before Winter

Furnace service before winterWinters in Saskatoon can be unforgiving, and this year will be no different. This means you’ll need your furnace working better and more efficiently than it has ever been this year if you want your home and your family to stay warm. To ensure your furnace continues to run as it should this winter, you need to have your furnace serviced before the end of fall.

Furnace service experts recommend getting your system professionally checked at least once every year, preferably before winter. There are a number of benefits:

  1. Helps Maintain Energy Efficiency

There are many benefits to hiring experts to perform an annual furnace service, one of which is that it will help ensure that your system continues to run at its highest efficiency. If you want to save money on heating this winter, an expert can tell you if your system requires repairs or even a replacement.

  1. Ensures Your Furnace is Ready to Perform

Your furnace service providers will check to make sure that all of your heating system’s various components are in good condition and ready to perform, no matter how cold it gets.

  1. Lowers the Likelihood of a Breakdown

Nothing could be worse than having your furnace abruptly shut down during a winter storm, especially if you don’t have the back up of a fireplace. It can also be especially frustrating because this is a time when most furnace service professionals are busy and limited as far as emergency services go. An early appointment and checkup could save you from needing an emergency service and repair.

  1. Protects Your Home & Your Family

All furnaces burn some type of fuel to create heat. Cracks, leaks and vulnerabilities around the fire area could compromise your family’s safety, as a furnace can leak poisonous gas, like Carbon Monoxide, into the home. Having the pros investigate your heat exchanger, your gas burner and gas valve calibration is vital for your family’s safety.

  1. Keeps Your Warranty Valid

A lot of manufacturers require you to have your furnace serviced annually so as to fulfill your warranty. When it comes down to it, a routine furnace service will save you money in case of larger problems, later on.

The functionality of your heating system is not something to take lightly. Furnaces keep your family warm during the winter months, and they should be cared for. When you don’t maintain your furnace properly, you run the risk of potentially costly furnace repairs, not to mention making your family pretty uncomfortable!
