A home’s HVAC equipment consumes the majority of its annual energy use, on average. While other major appliances, such as refrigerators, washers, and dryers, and dishwashers, come in at a close second, these appliances do not necessarily require annual maintenance. Furnace Tune Up Services in Farmington Valley CT can keep HVAC equipment in top shape, catch potential problems, and extend the life of the equipment. In the long run, preventative maintenance is cheaper than replacing the entire furnace in the event of a breakdown.
HVAC equipment is analogous to vehicles regarding the annual maintenance. It is a necessity to prevent the furnace’s internal components from malfunctioning. Although a furnace should only need a yearly tune-up, a higher amount of use in colder climates could call for more than one tune-up within a year. Keep in mind that newer furnaces are more dependent upon technology and annual tune-ups should not be skipped.
Neglecting or choosing to skip annual furnace tune-ups can also void the manufacturer’s warranty. Furnace Tune Up Services in Farmington Valley CT may include one time tune-ups or pre-paid two-year contracts. Read more about us online to see what furnace tune-up services are available. If your furnace was recently installed, you might be able to purchase a pre-paid maintenance contract shortly after installation.
The average lifespan of a new furnace is between fifteen and twenty years. Without proper maintenance, this lifespan could be lessened. Given the amount of money put into the purchase and installation of new HVAC equipment, it is beneficial to ensure the equipment lasts as long as possible. A properly maintained furnace also ensures a stable resale value for the home and no surprises when it is time for the home to be inspected.
Furnace tune-ups are sometimes overlooked by homeowners until it’s too late. You can prevent expensive repair work and cold nights by being proactive. Hire a licensed HVAC contractor to perform the tune-ups on an annual basis, preferably in the fall before the temperatures start to decline. A licensed HVAC contractor will be able to catch problems before they get out of hand and provide an additional estimate for any repairs.
