Although Summerfield, FL, doesn’t experience the biting cold winters common in some other parts of the world, your furnace is still a major system, and it impacts your utility bills significantly. Here are some important benefits of professional furnace maintenance.
1. Prolonged Equipment Life
When we service your furnace, we don’t just check for obvious damage. We inspect and lubricate moving parts, clean or replace filters, test the entire system, and much more. A well-cared-for HVAC system can last for up to 20 years, and an extended system life postpones the cost of replacement.
2. Maintain Your Manufacturer’s Warranty
Some manufacturers offer warranty periods that can be as long as 10 years. If you attempt to file a warranty claim during that period, the manufacturer is going to ask for preventive maintenance records. Without proof of service, it’s unlikely that you will qualify for the benefit you already paid for when you purchased the system.
Most heating systems involve some form of combustion as a heat source. Combustion requires fuel, and it can also produce dangerous byproducts like carbon monoxide. During a maintenance visit, we check for any fuel or carbon monoxide leaks to ensure your family’s safety as well as their comfort.
4. Reduced Utility Bills
A regularly serviced furnace operates at near peak efficiency levels, but an unmaintained system has to work harder to hold the same temperature. A strained system runs longer, uses more fuel, and experiences a significantly greater potential for failure, which may result in expensive repairs. Regular preventive maintenance helps keep your utility bills lower by making sure that your furnace runs efficiently.
Our goal is to keep your furnace running as long as possible in Summerfield, FL. Call DeSantis Appliance & AC Service Inc to learn more about our affordable HVAC maintenance plans that include a 10% discount on any parts.
