The unofficial end of summer is September, which is why we’re calling it fall furnace maintenance now. Don’t worry, we’re not declaring the end of summer yet, we’re just trying to help you prepare for the impending winter. Late August and September are the best times for fall furnace maintenance because professional furnace maintenance and repair companies like Novel Care can easily schedule your fall furnace maintenance well in advance of the first snowfall.
The Importance of Fall Furnace Maintenance
Without an annual furnace check-up your furnace might not last as long as you want it to. Your system can wear itself down and different components can easily break down if they’re not properly maintained. One of the worst things that can happen is your furnace can accidentally release deadly carbon monoxide into your home, which is also why our technicians always ask if there’s a carbon monoxide detector in the house.
The typical life of a furnace is around 20 years, and with proper maintenance and repairs your furnace should last that long if not longer. As all furnaces age their efficiency drops, so if you have an older furnace it’s important to talk to your HVAC technician when it makes sense to replace it for a new high-efficiency furnace.
High-efficiency furnace have the ability to save you a lot of money each month and over the life of your furnace. Replacing your furnace is a matter of functionality and what your household budget can absorb at the time. In the long-term and new efficient furnace makes the most sense, but talk to your Novel Care technician for the best advice.
