What’s on your to-do list this fall? Like many in the Salisbury area, you may be planning to pick apples or press cider at a local farm, visit a pumpkin patch, or bike along the nearby trails when the fall leaves are at their finest.
Whatever’s on your list, may we suggest adding one simple task — scheduling a fall furnace tune-up.
Why Does My Furnace Need a Tune-Up?
Failing to schedule a fall furnace tune-up is perhaps the biggest mistake homeowners make when it comes to their home heating systems. Without proper maintenance, your furnace is more likely to consume excess energy, break down unexpectedly, and even release contaminants like carbon monoxide into your home.
By simply scheduling one tune-up for your furnace every fall, you’ll gain access to benefits like:
More efficient home heating
A furnace tune-up includes a thorough cleaning of your heating unit, plus adjustments such as tightening electrical connections and lubricating all moving parts. These things make your heating system run more efficiently all winter.
Lower energy bills
A furnace tune-up also helps you avoid paying more than necessary to heat your home when it’s cold out. With a more energy efficient heating system, you’ll see lower energy bills.
Fewer heating emergencies
Just like car maintenance, heating maintenance helps prevent unexpected emergencies and costly repairs down the road.
Increased home safety
Malfunctioning heating equipment has the potential to send carbon monoxide into your home, which can be lethal in high concentrations—and unhealthy even at low concentrations. A furnace tune-up will ensure your furnace is running safely.
Fall: The Best Time for Furnace Maintenance
At Kearney HVAC, we recommend scheduling furnace maintenance at least once a year — ideally early on in the fall. Early maintenance allows you to catch minor issues before they escalate into larger issues later on in the season. Plus, you can start enjoying energy savings and lower utility bills sooner. You’ll also beat the “late fall rush” of people who are racing to have their heating systems repaired after turning them on for the first time this season.
