You need to get the most out of your furnace. In the event your energy bills have increased recently, then it’s time to schedule your furnace tune-up right away. The energy savings can be substantial, and the amount of money you spend hiring an HVAC professional will pay for itself with the savings.
4 ways you can save with a furnace tune-up
#1. You buy your furnace more time
You should schedule a furnace tune-up once per year. That’s because regular annual maintenance can help your furnace live a longer, more effective life. Without maintenance, you may need to replace your furnace sooner than you would have otherwise, which means buying more new furnaces over the lifetime of your home. You’ll save money by simply having a more resilient furnace you will not have to replace any time soon.
#2. You’ll reduce the repairs your system needs
A furnace tune-up costs far less than having to repair some component of your furnace or heat pump that is no longer working. In this way, the expression “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” applies. Depending on the problem, it can cost a lot of money to get a furnace back up-and-running following a breakdown.
#3. You’ll cut your energy bills
As they age, furnaces run less efficiently. As a result, they require more electricity or to operate, which can increase power bills. During an inspection, your Southern Air technician will inspect the refrigerant levels, lubricate moving parts, and clean the condenser coil. The expert also will suggest helpful settings for the thermostat.
#4. Keep your warranty intact
When you first got the furnace, it should have come with a warranty. Many times, these warranties will include provisions saying how the furnace requires routine maintenance in order for the warranty to remain valid.
