Although it may still be warm and pleasant during the day in Bloomington, IL, cold winter air will soon be on the way. Early fall is an ideal time to take care of many critical tasks around your home, including furnace maintenance. If you’ve been postponing scheduling your annual furnace maintenance visit, consider these three reasons why early fall furnace tune-ups are a good idea.
Reduce Wintertime Heating Bills
A neglected furnace costs more to operate, explains the Energy Star. By keeping up with routine furnace tune-ups, you’ll lower your wintertime heating bills. Our furnace tune-ups include cleaning the burner and combustion chamber, verifying proper flame and gas flow properties, and changing the air filter. A small investment in a furnace tune-up pays you back handsomely through savings on your natural gas bill.
Identify Potential Issues
For a furnace to heat your Bloomington home safely and efficiently, it needs routine cleaning and lubrication. When furnaces experience dust and soot buildup, this contributes to wear and tear. Over time, this causes parts to prematurely age and fail. The last thing you’ll want to deal with during a period of frigid winter air is a broken furnace. Our technicians inspect all electrical and gas supply connections, burners, sensors, the heat exchanger and combustion chamber door, and the flue. Scheduling your tune-up now ensures that there’s plenty of time for any problems to be repaired.
Improper combustion, a dirty filter, malfunctioning ventilation equipment, or an obstructed flue presents a considerable safety risk to everyone in your home. Furnace maintenance services include safety inspections and testing. If our qualified service technicians find a safety issue during your maintenance visit, we’ll explain it and provide you with the best options for solving the problem.
