As the temperatures begin to drop here in Houston, you may be tempted to just turn on your furnace and forget about it until spring. However, that would be a mistake. Just like any other appliance in your home, furnaces need to be properly maintained in order to function properly and efficiently. That’s why, before you start cranking up the heat this winter, it’s essential to have Champion Forest A/C & Heating check your furnace to make sure it’s in good working order.
Why Furnace Maintenance is Important
There are several reasons why checking and maintaining your furnace is essential. First and foremost, it’s a safety issue. A malfunctioning furnace can release carbon monoxide into your home, which can be dangerous—even deadly—for you and your family. That’s why it’s so important to have Champion Forest A/C & Heating inspect your furnace every year to ensure it’s operating safely.
In addition to being a safety hazard, a poorly-functioning furnace can also lead to higher energy bills. If your furnace isn’t operating as efficiently as it should be, it will have to work harder to heat your home, which will use more energy and drive up your utility bills. Our professional furnace inspection can identify any potential issues that could be causing inefficiency so they can be fixed before they become a problem.
Finally, catching potential problems early can help extend the life of your furnace. Like any other appliance, furnaces don’t last forever. However, with proper maintenance, you can extend its lifespan and delay the need for an expensive replacement.
