As we head into fall, it’s time to start preparing your home for the cold, harsh winter. One of the most important things you can get done this autumn is furnace maintenance. According to This Old House, a professional cleaning and inspection in the fall ensures your furnace won’t wear out this winter. Let’s take a closer look at why now’s the time to schedule a furnace checkup:
To keep your family safe
During your annual furnace checkup, your Patterson Plumbing technician can identify issues that may seem harmless, but are actually quite dangerous. Your furnace is designed to emit exhaust out of a flute of chimney. If a component isn’t working properly, deadly carbon monoxide could poison your home’s air.
To extend its lifespan
Your furnace needs to be checked annually to make sure it’s not being put under too much strain. An overworked furnace will work less efficiently, require more repairs, and burn out quickly. Our heating experts will assess your furnace to verify that it’s maintaining peak operating efficiency, which will in turn extend its lifespan.
To improve energy efficiency
When cold weather hits, it’s important that your furnace is running as smoothly as possible. A dirty furnace must work harder to keep your home comfortable during the winter, resulting in increased energy consumption.
Don’t wait until your furnace breaks down to call Patterson Plumbing. Stalling is not only inefficient, but could put you and your family in danger this winter. Call us at 719-544-4922 to make an appointment that’s convenient for you, and don’t forget to like us on Facebook for more tips!
