Importance of Furnace Maintenance


Home heating systems in the northwest Ohio area operate approximately 6500 hours each year. Without the proper inspections and maintenance, that kind of burden can play havoc on your furnace. Expansion and contraction cause thermal stress to heat exchangers, blower motors vibrate and spin at high speeds, and the entire heating system is continuously filtering dust and pollutants. The normal wear and tear on your furnace can cause duct work to loosen, blower motor bearings to require lubrication, dust to build up, leaks to occur, and a number of other issues.

Before those cool autumn nights arrive, it is recommended that you make an appointment with your local HVAC company to have your furnace inspected and tuned up. Regular maintenance and inspections of your furnace can not only help it reach its peak performance, save energy costs, and help prevent costly furnace repairs down the road, but having an annual inspection can help keep your family safe as well.

Benefits of Regular Inspections and Maintenance

  • Maximize performance: Whether you have a newer heating unit or an older furnace, regular maintenance of your system can keep its components operating at their very best. When your heating system is functioning properly, your home will maintain a more consistent temperature, helping to keep you and your family comfortable on those cold winter nights.
  • Lower energy costs: Keeping your heating system maintained and running at peak performance can save you an abundance of hard earned cash when it’s time to pay your utility bill.
  • Prevent more costly repairs in the future: A professional inspection of your furnace can help to identify possible problems before they become expensive repairs. Issues like loose belts, improperly firing burners, blockages, and leaks can be identified early when you have your system inspected annually.
  • Protect your family: Improper inspection and maintenance of your home’s heating system and all of its components can cause serious safety hazards for you and your family. Carbon monoxide from your furnace can leak into your home’s interior spaces exposing your household to possible poisoning from the harmful fumes. Carbon monoxide poisoning can lead to painful headaches, nausea, extreme fatigue and dizziness, and in some cases, even death.
