Sep 20, 2019 | Furnace

It’s that time of year again. Classes have resumed for school students. Leaves are about to change colors on the trees. Fall football is underway. And as the temperature begins to drop, a lot of area residents are wise to prep their furnaces for winter with a tune-up on their heaters.

We hope that you will do the same.

At Lewis Center-Powell Heating & Cooling, we want to do all we can to save you money and keep your family safe and warm through the coming winter.

Here are six reasons why it’s a good idea to get a furnace tune-up before it gets too cold.

It guarantees quality airflow

When we service your furnace for a tune-up, our technicians check your heating system to make sure it is getting the proper airflow. Limited or constricted airflow puts needless stress on your furnace, which can necessitate additional repairs in addition to shortening its lifetime.

It saves money and time

Getting a furnace tune-up now before the weather gets cold allows you to be prepared and keeps you from having to wait for a technician during the winter in a cold home with limited heat. Plus doing it earlier makes it far more affordable.

It keeps you and your family safe

Furnaces burn fuel to produce heat, and the burning process must be exact to maintain effectiveness and safety. Even a small issue could cause a gas leak into your home or dangerous carbon monoxide levels. We advise our customers against taking any chances when it comes to the wellbeing of their families.

If you feel, your current heating system could be unsafe; please give us a call immediately.

Improves energy efficiency

With our thorough cleaning and inspection of your furnace burner and heat exchanger, your entire system will operate more efficiently. This will ensure safe operation and makes sure your furnace runs all winter properly. It also gives you the added benefit of lowering your electric/gas bills.

It decreases the needs for repairs

It’s common in this industry that every year, customers get repairs for things that could have been avoided with routine maintenance, like furnace tune-ups. A tune-up comprises cleaning that makes your furnace run effectively as it should, as well as finding smaller issues prior to becoming more costly repairs.

It helps maintain the manufacturer’s warranty

Annual tune-ups are especially crucial for furnaces under a manufacturer’s warranty. A lot of furnace manufacturers require it while instructing customers to maintain them regularly or the warranty becomes obsolete.
