It seems like every year, around fall, you can feel a significant shift in the Las Vegas air. It goes from being warm to chilly outside in a hurry. As we get switched over and ready for colder weather, many people are turning their furnaces on for the first time this fall. Before you get too close to flipping the switch to turn on your heat, it’s important that you schedule your routine fall furnace maintenance appointment. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about why it’s so important to perform fall furnace maintenance and the many benefits that come from doing so.
High Efficiency Furnace Operation
The last thing you want when it comes to heating your home, is for there to be cold spots in your home. You want the heat flowing out of the vents in your home to be not only strong but even. As the HVAC professionals clean and calibrate your furnace, it will work more efficiently to give you that even heat that you are looking for. One of the main benefits that comes from a furnace that is running efficiently is the savings that you will get on your energy bill.
Longer Lasting Furnace
When your furnace is working efficiently, you will find that your system will last much longer. Regular maintenance is the best way to avoid premature furnace failure. In fact, furnaces that have been properly maintained will last, on average, five years longer than those that are neglected.
Lower Risk of Furnace Repair
No matter what you do, as your furnace gets older, there is a larger risk of furnace failure. One way that you can avoid repairs is to perform maintenance on your furnace. During a furnace maintenance appointment, a technician will thoroughly inspect your system for any small repairs that may be needed. This helps you avoid larger costly repairs down the road.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Believe it or not, you can boost your air quality when you have your furnaced tuned up. Often, the air quality in your home is worse than the air quality in a large city. When you have your furnace tuned up, the technician cleans it completely. Removing the dirt, dust and debris from the furnace keeps it from making its way to the ductwork and finally the vents in your home.
Most of the problems that homeowners face with their furnace aren’t dangerous, but there are a few that can be dangerous. For instance, if there is a crack in your heat exchanger, it can release carbon monoxide that can be deadly. During routine maintenance, all risks are inspected and eliminated.
