Do you use a furnace to heat your home during the winter? With the colder months now here, it is important to make sure your furnace is working properly. It’s much better to find problems now than to find your furnace is busted and temperatures in the Baltimore/Annapolis area are below freezing! With regular furnace service from All Seasons Heating & Cooling, your furnace will be ready to keep you warm this winter!
Why should I get a furnace tune-up?
As mentioned before, you want to find any problems before you need to start your furnace for comfort (and if the recent cold snaps have been any indication, those times could be upon us very soon!). In addition to making sure your furnace is reliable, there is also a safety issue. Your furnace produces carbon monoxide (CO) as a byproduct of fuel burning. Normally this is vented to the outside when your furnace is working properly. If your furnace is malfunctioning, the CO can leak back into your house and cause serious injury. For your health and safety, it is essential to have regular furnace maintenance! All Seasons will check to make sure your furnace is working properly and won’t cause you any problems.
What happens during a furnace tune-up?
During an All Seasons furnace tune-up, we check for any possible issues with your furnace, lubricate joints, tighten loose screws and more. We’ve been in business for more than 35 years, so we know what problems to look for during a furnace tune-up and can take care of them before they become an issue. With an All Seasons furnace tune-up, you won’t have to worry about not having heat during the winter!
How can I maintain my furnace in between tune-ups?
It is also important to perform basic furnace maintenance on your own in between regular tune-ups. The most important thing you should do is check your furnace frequently to make sure there isn’t any soot or residue around the unit. This may be a sign your machine is malfunctioning and you need professional furnace service.
You should also change your furnace filter once a month during heating season. This will ensure there won’t be too much build-up on your filter that can block airflow and cause your furnace to run inefficiently and potentially malfunction.
Like any machine, a furnace needs regular maintenance to keep it working properly. Contact All Seasons Heating & Cooling today to schedule your furnace service!
