Why Does Your Furnace Need a Yearly Tune-Up?

Furnace Tune-Up

Since the modern furnace was invented, manufacturers and technicians have urged consumers to perform regular maintenance on theirs at least once a year. While this suggestion has been passed on for years, many homeowners still don’t see the importance of following through on regular furnace maintenance. Furnaces, like any machine, require maintenance in order to function properly, and if you’re not maintaining yours regularly, you expose yourself to the threat of a broken furnace and costly repairs. 

Over the course of a year, your furnace logs more than a thousand hours of a pumping warm air throughout the rooms in your home. In the same way that you wouldn’t let your car drive thousands and thousands of miles without taking it in for at least an oil change, you shouldn’t let your furnace work hard year in and year out without hiring an HVAC technician to give it some much needed TLC.

In addition to ensuring that your furnace runs as efficiently as it should, a tune-up can also uncover potentially serious problems with the furnace that could lead to costly repairs down the road. Identifying problems like this before they occur not only saves you from freezing when your furnace breaks, but it also gives you more time to budget and schedule repairs. If you wait for your furnace to malfunction before having it examined by a professional, you may find yourself in need of off hours emergency service, which in some cases, can be extremely expensive. 

Scheduling a yearly tune-up for your furnace not only ensures that it will work when you need it to, but it will also help you get the most possible life out of it before you have to shop for a replacement. Since furnaces aren’t exactly a cheap investment, paying for routine maintenance can save you a lot of money in the long run. 

If it’s been a while since your furnace has received a tune-up, or it’s simply time to schedule your annual service appointment, contact the heating experts at Baltimore Heating and Cooling today!
