The furnace in your home is one of the most important appliances that you own. While a furnace can work well and keep your home warm for well over 10 years, it does require maintenance and servicing from time to time. To ensure it continues to work well, having your furnace serviced by a technician on a regular basis would be a good option. There are several reasons why you should have your furnace serviced annually before each winter season.
Ensure it is Functional
After a long summer and warm fall, your furnace could have gone unused for more than six months. In this time period, it is possible that a mechanical or other issue occurred and that it is no longer functional. This can end up being a big problem if it suddenly does not work when you need it to. When you have your furnace serviced by a technician before the start of winter, you can be assured that it will be functional when needed most.
Another reason why you should have your furnace serviced is that it will help to ensure that it works efficiently. If your furnace is not working efficiently, it can lead to much higher utility bills. A technician will be able to confirm that the furnace is working as efficiently as possible and will be able to make any necessary repairs.
Most importantly, when you have a furnace service completed you will be assured that everything is working safely. While furnaces are generally very safe, they do pose some risk. The technician will be able to run a variety of tests to ensure it is not leaking carbon monoxide and that there is no risk of fire occurring.
