Reduce Your Energy Bill
Who doesn’t want to potentially pay less for their energy? Given that heating can be approximately 50% of your energy costs, paying attention to your furnace can really pay off. If our winter is a cold one, those heating costs can climb, but a well-tuned furnace can save you from some whopping energy bills.
Some studies have shown that getting regular maintenance on your furnace could save you as much as 30% on your heating. Also, a well-maintained furnace will last longer and need fewer emergency repairs.
Change or Clean Your Filters
Getting a tune-up is one step, but there are a few others that can help reduce your energy bill and extend the life of your furnace. Changing filters regularly or cleaning them (if yours are reusable) is also a good step. Ensuring proper airflow can help keep your home at the right temperature without your furnace working harder.
Save More—Install a Programmable Thermostat
You can often save yourself even more money on your heating bill. If you don’t yet have one, consider getting a programmable thermostat. This will allow you to put your heating on a schedule that will keep your bills more even. It will save you money in the long run too.
Keep Warm in Winter
Getting a tune-up for your furnace will ensure that you don’t wake up in the middle of the night because your heater stopped during below-freezing weather. A furnace check will help you know exactly what condition your furnace is in before the weather turns really cold. Also, if you don’t wait to get a furnace tune-up, it can potentially save you the trouble of needing an emergency repair.
Avoid Gas and Carbon-Monoxide Leaks
Getting your furnace serviced by a professional, like our experts at Foothills Heating and Cooling in Denver, will help keep your home safe. A problem in your furnace can spell trouble and can even be deadly. Carbon monoxide leaks can occur without a homeowner realizing because it is a colorless and odorless gas. High carbon monoxide levels can cause headaches, nausea, and even death. A professional check of your furnace can ensure everything is in proper working order, so don’t wait to get a furnace tune-up.
Getting regular maintenance on your furnace can help you keep the furnace under warranty. If you end up needing to use the warranty, you’ll likely need to provide service records. Skipping regular furnace maintenance may void the warranty, leaving you to pay for any issues that might arise.
So, don’t wait for winter to get a furnace tune-up. Call us now at Foothills Heating and Cooling in Denver. We can get your furnace checked out and tuned-up so that you can rest warm and cozy this winter without worrying about your furnace.
