With the cold weather settling in, it’s time to start thinking about turning up the heat—but is your furnace ready? Furnace manufacturers typically recommend that homeowners perform furnace maintenance at least once a year. A poorly maintained furnace is not only more likely to need expensive repairs later on, but it is also a very serious hazard to the safety of your family and home. In fact, furnaces are the second leading cause of residential fires during the fall and winter months.
For just $59, our skilled technicians will come to your home and do a full safety inspection on your furnace to make sure that it’s ready for the winter months ahead. As your local experts for furnace maintenance in Kandiyohi County, MN, we know exactly what to check for to make sure that your furnace is not only safe, but also running at its peak performance. By investing in our $59 safety inspection now, you can avoid a potential emergency later on. Below are just a few other reasons why manufacturers and contractors alike recommend a fall safety inspection.
Save on heating costs
Just like a poorly maintained car uses more gas, a poorly maintained furnace uses more energy. By not having a regular inspection of your furnace, you be paying out hundreds more dollars per year in heating costs. For just $59, you can potentially save yourself that and more by reducing your utility bill.
Avoid costly repairs
By hiring a contractor for furnace maintenance in Kandiyohi County, MN early on, you can avoid costly repairs or having to pay for emergency services later. Spending $59 now is far less expensive than being charged for having someone come to your home after hours to repair a furnace that has stopped working—not to mention the inconvenience of having your furnace stop working in the middle of a January night.
As mentioned before, poorly maintained furnaces are the second leading cause of residential fires in the winter, behind only cooking fires. Even a ball of lint or a dirty filter can be enough to cause a fire. A safety inspection will locate and remove any potential fire hazards, protecting you and your family from disaster.
Protect yourself from carbon monoxide
A furnace that is not combusting and carrying away carbon monoxide properly can be a serious hazard to your family. Although all gas burning furnaces produce some carbon monoxide, this amount should be small and carried away by the ventilation system. Our $59 safety inspection will identify any potential risks for increased amounts of carbon monoxide or problems with the ventilation.
Furnace inspections are not only a smart investment, but also a very necessary one. By having your furnace inspected annually, you will not only save yourself from costly heating bills and repairs, but you will also be protecting your home and family from dangers associated with fire and carbon monoxide.
