If you had a busy spring and forgot to get your system checked, be sure to call us for your fall check-up. Our technicians will come out to your home and go through your entire furnace. You want to get this done before the cold hits to make sure your system is working efficiently and doesn’t give you problems in the winter.
Within your furnace, there are several components that are critical, not only to operation, but also to the longevity of your system. One of the most important parts is the blower wheel, which moves air through your home. We’ve got to get in there and make sure it’s clean. An eighth of an inch of dirt and debris on the blower wheel can reduce overall airflow by as much as thirty percent. Can you imagine what that’s doing to your utility bill?
It ultimately ends up costing you approximately thirty-percent more to operate your system. In addition to that, within the furnace there are electrical components that need to be checked. There’s an item called an igniter inside your gas furnace that allows the system to light up and start. Over time these components begin to breakdown and at some point they just stop operating.
It’s a lot cheaper to have a tune-up done once a year than to have to make an emergency service call because your system broke down.
Ensuring that your system is clean and working efficiently will help it move the right amount of air through the heat exchanger. When a furnace doesn’t move the correct amount, it causes the heat exchanger to over-heat, which can lead to premature failure. This is what we want to avoid at all costs. Premature failure of these critical components could lead to a total furnace replacement.
Having these check-ups helps you maximize the life of your air conditioner and furnace so that you’re not dealing with unexpected expenses. If you missed your spring check-up, I highly recommend calling us for the fall. After your first check-up, we can enroll you in our Club Membership. Once you’re in the club, you’ll receive annual cleanings and MoreVent takes over so that you can stay worry-free! Call us to get started at 610-444-3333.
