As the weather cools and the school year starts back up, we can all feel fall right around the corner. Every season, there are different tasks that homeowners should complete in order to ensure comfort, safety, and savings during that part of the year. Fall is no different.
By checking off these fall furnace maintenance tasks for a safe and cozy home, your family will be ready for the cold weather and holiday season ahead.
Your heating and cooling system should be checked twice a year. Once in the spring before the swelter of summer, and once in the fall before the chill of winter. Heating systems, such as furnaces and fireplaces that go unchecked are not only inefficient, they can be dangerous as well. Learn about the dangers of carbon monoxide, aka the silent killer.
The older your HVAC system, the more important regular tune-ups are. Additionally, many manufacturer’s warranties require regular annual tune-ups for their warranties to remain in effect.
By scheduling professional service done during these interim seasons, your system is able to withstand the daily usage necessary to keep your family safe and comfortable in the more extreme-weather months.
Just like with a car, you’d never wait until it broke down to have it serviced. With any system that we count on, regular check-ups are essential to performance and safety. Your furnace or boiler needs annual tune-ups, and it’s best to do it in the fall before the first really cold day of the year.
Service Champions’ trained technicians perform a 60-90-minute precision tune-up and professional cleaning. Check out our full 21-Point Furnace Maintenance Checklist.
No matter what type of heating system you have, don’t ignore annual maintenance. It will prevent a sudden breakdown on a cold, winter day and will save you money on energy bills while extending the system’s useful life. Learn the benefits of fall furnace maintenance.
In addition to professional maintenance once a year, it’s also important to conduct some basic DIY maintenance of your own.
The number one danger of a failing heating system is a carbon monoxide leak—one big reason why you should schedule heating maintenance early.
