Fall is here and before those cold nights set in it is time to have your annual checkup on your furnace. If you ignore the yearly inspection and cleaning, your furnace will have a better chance of breaking down, stop working entirely or even worse distribute carbon monoxide into your house. The biggest problem that occurs in your heating system is dirt. Dirt in your system will lower its efficiency to heat, use more fuel than is required and wear parts at a faster rate. Another important service tip is to have the system lubricated and check the belt to see if it needs adjusting.
Whatever type of furnace you have, you do not want to wait until those cold nights are here and your furnace does not want to come on. When your furnace is adjusted properly and clean it will save you money and extend the life of your furnace. A typical annual furnace service usually cost around $100.00 to perform which is much cheaper than having to replace it with a new heater because of lack of maintenance and service. So do not wait until the cold weather hits and you are without a working furnace, have your heater checked out and serviced to keep it running efficiently through the cold nights approaching us.
