Summer is coming to an end, before the cold weather hits, we would like to recommend having your furnace inspected. You want to make sure your furnace is in good running order and prevent it from conking out when you need it the most.
It’s a lot like a car, you need to have check ups once in awhile. If you have this inspected once a year, it can save you money in the long run. It will also help the life span on your furnace by having annual inspections.
Experts say up to 75 percent of no-heat calls in the winter are related to a lack of maintenance. A furnace can stop working suddenly, leaving you and your family in the cold.
It could also be a health hazard. An annual inspection can reveal a carbon monoxide leaks, which are hard to detect because gas is colorless and odorless. Carbon monoxide can lead to head aches, dizziness, nausea, and even death. An estimated 500 people die each year, and 15,000 people are taken to the emergency rooms, because of exposure.
Not maintaining your furnace-whether it’s gas or electric-can cause it to run less efficiently, making it work harder, therefore increasing your monthly energy bills.
HVAC systems are one of the most complex systems that run through your home, so do yourself a favor and schedule an appointment.
