3 Important Reasons Your Heating System Needs a Yearly Tune-Up

Call Comfort Control Now: 770-203-1600

Just like your car, house, and yard need to be maintained, your home heating system needs regular maintenance, too. The best way to ensure that your furnace, heat pump, or other heating system is working in optimal condition every winter is to have it tuned up at the beginning of the season. This will help you keep your home as comfortable as possible, and significantly reduce the chances that you will have a heating problem during the cold days of winter. Give Comfort Control, Inc. a call today and see the difference that a simple tune-up can make.

Improves Efficiency

Are you concerned about the rising cost of electricity and gas? Most people are, which is why energy efficiency has taken the stage globally. One very simple and very effective way to save energy – possibly quite a bit – is to keep your heating system well maintained. This can include changing air filters, lubricating blower motors, cleaning furnace burners, and inspecting all mechanical and electrical components to make sure everything is still in good shape. This tune-up will ensure that your heating system isn’t using too much energy to work past dirty filters or rusty blowers, and will save you money on your energy bill in the long run.

Increases Longevity

Every type of heating system is made of a large number of parts that need to work smoothly together for the system to operate properly. When one part fails, malfunctions, or simply isn’t kept clean or lubricated, the other parts have to work harder to compensate. It’s a vicious downward spiral from there – when other parts have to work harder, they are more likely to malfunction before their time, and so on. You may think that it’s OK to go two or three years between tune-ups, but waiting to get basic maintenance on your heating system means that you could have a faulty part for two or three years and never know it. To keep your energy bills as low as possible, and to prolong the lifespan of your current heating system as long as possible, Comfort Control, Inc. recommends making a tune-up a part of your fall to-do list every year.

Keeps the Air You Breathe Healthy

Unless you have a boiler, you are probably like the majority of Americans who use forced air to heat their homes. Forced air heating actually heats air and forces it into your home, which means that the air used to keep you warm is also the air that you and your family breathe. An old furnace or heat pump that hasn’t been properly maintained is almost certainly pushing dirty, dusty, or even moldy air into every room in the house. This can weaken immune systems, prolong colds and other illnesses, aggravate asthma, cause dry coughs, and give you and your household members a whole host of other health complications that could last throughout the winter. Get in touch with Comfort Control, Inc. to schedule your yearly heating system tune-up and make sure your family stays healthy.
