A furnace tune-up should be atop your list of priorities this winter. With plenty of snow, sleet, and low temperatures ahead, you need a reliable source of heat to withstand it all. The colder months here in New England are unforgiving and even just a few touch-ups can ensure you keep warm. Even if you are not a licensed heating contractor, you should still make the effort to maintain your heating system as well to ensure it continues to run during the worst winter weather. But be careful! Since you do not have the right tools and expertise, you may be more prone to make mistakes leaving you without any heat at all. Improperly maintaining your furnace can lead to a wide range of problems including higher spending on utility bills, an increased risk of home heating fires, poor energy efficiency, and a shortened furnace lifespan. Furnace replacement won’t come cheap either. For example, the average cost of a gas furnace today is closer to $4,000. You may be spending all of that money and more simply because you didn’t maintain your furnace properly. All of these problems can add up to a huge amount of stress that will make your winter one to forget. However, there’s no need to settle for a season of heating woes. You can avoid mistakes easily, and all you need to do is practice more awareness.
