A furnace operates in the background to provide for the warmth and comfort of a home. At certain times of the year, these machines work harder than any other appliance, and we depend on them wholeheartedly. However, the steady and reliable function of a furnace can lead some people to ignore maintenance and repair needs. HVAC professionals and furnace manufacturers alike highlight the importance of annual furnace maintenance and repair. At Gold Shield Services Inc., we also strongly emphasize the value of this service.
The Benefits of Furnace Maintenance
Furnace maintenance, especially for a gas device, comes with a range of benefits. If you have neglected your furnace’s maintenance needs, consider the following advantages, and call (847) 553-4691 to set up service.
- Lower Utility Bills: A well-tuned furnace wastes less energy and lowers your monthly bills.
- Longer Life: Regular repairs and maintenance greatly lessen the chance of failure.
- Fewer Repairs: A clean, well-maintained furnace will have fewer repair needs.
- Better Safety: Maintenance can eliminate the likelihood of dangerous gas leaks.
- Optimal Performance: Regular adjustment and tuning makes for a warmer home.
It is important to note that regular service can also protect your health and that of loved ones. As a gas furnace begins to struggle under the weight of repair needs, various indispensable safety components can malfunction or break down. These devices can not only leak the natural gas that serves as their fuel, but also the carbon monoxide it produces as a consequence of its function. Gas leak symptoms can include nausea, dizziness, headaches, and fatigue. If you ever suspect the presence of carbon monoxide or natural gas in your breathable air, don’t hesitate to schedule gas leak detection from a local professional. If the results are positive, have gas leak repair performed on the spot.
