Why A Furnace Tuneup Is So ImportantPosted: October 9, 2012
Having annual maintenance performed on your furnace is more about peace of mind than anything else. When done properly, maintaining your system will save you money on energy bills, prolong the life of your equipment and protect your overall investment. Heating and air conditioning systems are very expensive. With preventative maintenance, problems can be discovered before serious damage is done. Not only that, issues can be discovered and dealt with instead of your unit breaking down in the middle of winter. You take your car for regular oil changes and tune-ups so you won’t have a break-down when you need it…sound familiar? Your heater is similar to this.
Considering how we Georgian’s can’t STAND the cold weather – this maintenance should be right up there with your most important ‘to-dos’.
Our maintenance includes, but is not limited to the following points:
