Many people think if they had any sort of furnace failure which required a service person to come fix it, they should be good to go for a while and don't need a tune-up. But just as with your car, fixing a flat tire is not the same thing as changing your oil and replacing your spark plugs. Furnace tune-ups are done separately, and when done on a yearly basis, they can prevent other breakdowns that can leave you without heat in the dead of winter. Here are three reasons why yearly furnace tune-ups are important.
If you need a second opinion, here are some credible resources.Energy Star is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program. It is their mission to help consumers save money and protect our climate through energy efficiency education and strategies. They recommend to "Keep your cooling and heating system at peak performance by having a contractor do annual pre-season check-ups."Energy.gov provides energy efficiency and renewable energy information to consumers in the United States, including families, homeowners, renters, and drivers. They say, "to maintain your heating system's efficiency and ensure healthy indoor air quality, it's critical to maintain the unit and it's venting mechanism."
