Top 4 Major Benefits of Furnace Maintenance
Makes equipment last longer
Heating systems are expensive to replace. Everyone wants to make their furnaces last as long as possible. However, are we willing to do what we need to do to make this possible? The best way to prolong heating equipment and guarantee it’s able to perform optimally for as long as possible is to utilize maintenance on a regular basis. Without regular maintenance, heating equipment lasts half as long as it is designed to. There’s a reason furnace manufacturers require maintenance to keep warranties valid. Keep in mind the cost of installing a brand new furnace prematurely is going to be far more expensive than all those years of maintenance visits combined.
Keeps factory warranty valid
Whenever we at Finneytown Heating & Cooling install a new residential heating system, we provide the homeowner with a warranty from the HVAC system’s manufacturer. This warranty coverage requires maintenance performed by a NATE-certified HVAC technician to remain valid. If the customer fails to have it performed, the warranty isn’t good any longer. If a warranty is void and a part goes bad or the unit breaks down, the customer is required to pay for the repairs out of pocket, using their own money. We suggest playing smart and staying safe when it comes to expensive heating equipment. Our furnace maintenance services keep your home heating system protected from any potential manufacturing flaws.
Prevent furnace breakdowns
Dealing with a heating system breakdown during the wintertime can be a nightmare. Ohio’s winter weather can be brutal. Heat is more than a luxury; it’s a necessity. Nevertheless, roughly 85% of the furnace repairs we perform could have been prevented at a fraction of the cost if they hadn’t neglected maintenance. By having maintenance done every year heading into winter when you use your furnace the most, you will prevent most of the furnace problems you’ll ever have to deal with and not have to risk losing your heat.
Minimizes Residential Heating Costs
Homeowners can save money on their monthly heating costs by keeping their furnaces in good working order. Furnaces wear out over time and need regular maintenance. By giving your furnace the love and care it needs, you can save money by repairing the furnace yourself and prolonging its life.
How to Replace the Air Filter in Your Furnace
While most homeowners aren’t able to do the more complicated maintenance tasks on their home heating equipment on their own, replacing your air filter is something almost anyone can do on their own in relatively little time. In fact, it is something everyone should know how to do because it’s something they need to be doing regularly on all HVAC equipment.
If your air filter is dirty, changing it is probably the easiest way to maximize the furnace’s efficiency. The entire process shouldn’t take more than five minutes. You start by finding exactly what size air filter you need for your replacement filter. Then, you’ll substitute the old air filter with a new replacement filter. Once you have the replacement filter, all you need to do is go through the following steps:
- Turn off your furnace at the thermostat
- Find your old furnace filter
- Determine the size of your air filter
- Remove the old filter
- Insert the new filter
- Return furnace to “on” position
General Furnace Maintenance FAQ
How do I guarantee my furnace runs smoothly?
In addition to regular furnace tune-ups, changing your air filters frequently also helps reduce the chances of a furnace breakdown while ensuring optimal airflow. Airflow is extremely important with all types of home comfort equipment. Clean air filters ensure that your air flows through the system properly and helps the heating system operate more efficiently. When an air filter needs changing, the furnace’s motor is forced to work harder to push the air through the system. This increases the stress, adds to the wear and tear, and increases the chances of problems.
How do I avoid furnace problems?
The number one way to prevent furnace problems is preventative maintenance. By properly maintaining your heating system, our home heating technicians can catch minor issues and give you the opportunity to address them before they cause major problems. This helps homeowners reduce the wear and tear on their system and even prevent premature failure. The types of expert services performed during a furnace tune-up protect the HVAC system while improving heating efficiency and optimizing home comfort.
How much does a new furnace cost to install?
If not maintained consistently, homeowners usually end up having to replace their furnaces sooner than normal. A newer heating system can run on average anywhere from $1,500 to $7,200, depending on the model you choose and the size of your indoor space. The average cost of installing a mid-efficiency furnace is $1,500 to $2,500. Mid-efficiency heating systems have an annual fuel utilization efficiency rating of 80% to 90%.
