According to the wise words of Benjamin Franklin, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. While he originally meant for this quote to apply to fire safety, it is relevant in many other situations, including personal health, vehicle maintenance, and furnace maintenance. Here are 3 reasons why preventative maintenance for your HVAC system is so important:
1. Annual preventative maintenance allows your technician to detect any potential problems with your furnace and related systems. The last thing you want when the outdoor temperature is twenty below zero is for your furnace to fail. Consider how you keep your vehicle in top shape; you have the oil changed, the brakes checked, and the tires rotated periodically. If you didn't, the engine wouldn't run efficiently, and it would increase your cost of ownership. Your furnace needs the same periodic attention to keep it running smoothly, especially when you need it most.
2. Preventative maintenance lowers your energy costs. When the unit isn't performing as efficiently as it could, it will use more energy and raise your heating bill. Golden Seal Service Experts technicians perform an innovative 23-point inspection to detect signs of wear and tear, which can impact air circulation, efficiency, and safety. The inspection also includes an exclusive 11-point Home Health™ Report Card, which identifies potential indoor air quality risks in your home.
3. Your system will last longer, extending the time before unit replacement is necessary. Not only will repair costs and energy costs be reduced, you'll get many more years of service out of your system.
Golden Seal Service Experts technicians are NATE-certified, which means they've completed rigorous training and are extremely qualified to perform furnace maintenance and repairs. For more information, or to schedule your furnace's annual tune-up, please contact:
