Top three benefits to furnace maintenance

Binbrook Plumbing & Heating in Hamilton understands the value of a well-functioning furnace.

Undoubtedly, the cold months out of the year take a wear and tear on your heating system, as you rely heavily on your furnace to keep your home warm. In order to avoid any problems with your furnace during the winter, it is vital to conduct regular furnace maintenance checks.

Unfortunately, many ignore the importance of furnace checkups, until it is too late. Failing to perform furnace maintenance can result in expensive, or even deadly, consequences. Here are the top three benefits to regular furnace maintenance:

  1. Your bank account: During the summer months your furnace is virtually inactive, collecting dust and dirt that can wreak havoc on its internal workings. Getting an annual furnace tune-up before the start of the heating season can help identify and prevent any issues during the winter, and guarantee your furnace is working at optimal levels; which will save you money on your energy bill in the long run.
  2. Lasts longer: Replacing your furnace can be expensive, and something you want to try and avoid, if you can. Regular check-ups will keep your furnace running well for a longer period of time, and extend the life of your furnace. If a minor malfunction goes undetected for a long period of time, it can deteriorate the lifespan of your furnace and cause other, costly issues to arise.
  3. Carbon monoxide: A natural byproduct of incomplete combustion, carbon monoxide is a deadly, colourless, odourless and tasteless gas. Virtually all gas furnaces produce a small amount of carbon monoxide, which should be harmlessly vented to the outside of your home. However, dirty furnaces that have not been regularly serviced may produce greater amounts of carbon monoxide, and can be life-threatening.

Regular furnace inspections should take place at least once a year, and if you are looking for a company to assist with your check-up, call Binbrook Plumbing & Heating.
