5 Reasons to Get a Furnace Tune-Up in Massachusetts
Fall is here, and it’s only a matter of time until we get one of our Northeastern snowstorms. Owning a furnace can keep you warm, but you have to think about whether it can withstand several months of use. Unless you just purchased a new one, your furnace is likely a little worn from sitting inactive for the summer. If you want to ensure your furnace will work this winter, call MillTown to provide a furnace tune-up for your Massachusetts home. By doing this, you’ll know that your furnace will work its best.
Here are five reasons you should schedule a furnace tune-up for your Massachusetts home:
Cheaper than a full repair job
Furnace tune-ups will cost you, but they’re less expensive than paying to fix a broken furnace. When we tune-up your furnace, we fix any small problems we find with your furnace. If it weren’t for our tune-up maintenance, these small problems could develop into something that ruins your furnace.
Understand your furnace’s health
Tuning up your furnace can help you understand how your furnace is faring. This knowledge can help you decide if you want to get a new furnace. If you schedule your tune-up early this season and decide to make the switch, you’ll also have plenty of time to find a new furnace.
Avoid dangerous gas leaks
Poorly-maintained gas furnaces can be dangerous due to the gas they use and produce. Malfunctioning gas furnaces can release carbon monoxide into your house, which is deadly to people and many animals. Also, damaged gas furnaces may leak flammable gas that could lead to a house fire.
Extend your furnace’s life
As a major heating system, you should regularly check the furnace to ensure it’s working fine. Poorly-maintained furnaces are prone to wasting energy and dying quicker than usual. Also, unhealthy furnaces are more likely to break down.
Higher energy efficiency
The Department of Energy says that about half of an average homeowner’s energy bills come from using a furnace. However, regular maintenance and tune-ups can help you reduce this percentage. By staying vigilant about your furnace’s health, you can avoid mechanical problems that could hamper your furnace’s efficiency. If well-maintained, a furnace can use about 30% less energy than usual.
