With fall right around the corner and winter not far behind, homeowners all over Ontario are preparing to switch on their furnace for the first time in months. However, it’s important to keep your heating system well-maintained so it can handle the long winter without issue. On top of keeping your system running smoothly, professional furnace maintenance can help lower monthly utility bills, increase reliability and help extend a heating system’s lifespan.
Lower Utility Bills
When a heating system isn’t regularly maintained, it has to work much harder to heat a home. As a result, monthly home energy bills could increase as the furnace uses more energy to produce the same results. Studies have shown that routine furnace maintenance can save up to 20% on heating bills.
Help Prevent Costly Repairs
A well-maintained heating system operates more efficiently but is also less likely to break down and require expensive repairs. When a professional technician inspects the furnace, they can spot small issues and make adjustments before it escalates to a larger (and more costly) problem.
Prolong The Life of Heating System
Yearly professional furnace maintenance can also help increase the system’s lifespan. Most manufacturers list their heating systems lasting between 12 to 15 years, but include a clause that the lifespan is dependent on regular maintenance. Some people have found that their furnaces can last even longer by scheduling yearly service and following professional maintenance tips.
Make sure your furnace is ready for the winter
and schedule your yearly heating appointment.
