Homeowners across Cashiers, NC depend on furnaces during the winter months. A quality furnace can provide warmth and comfort for many years, but only when it’s cared for properly. It’s easy to overlook, but routine furnace maintenance is absolutely essential to keeping your home safe and comfortable.
Promote Cleaner and Safer Heating
A furnace is usually a perfectly safe and efficient way to heat your home, but that’s not always the case. When a furnace malfunctions, it can potentially expose you and your family to hazardous conditions. Cracked heat exchangers can sometimes allow dangerous carbon monoxide gas to enter your living space. Dirty or damaged burners can cause improper combustion, potentially releasing harmful byproducts into the air. Even dirty air filters can contribute to poor indoor air quality. Routine maintenance is the best way to catch and correct these issues before they can become hazardous.
Guard Against Gas Leaks
Needless to say, a leak in your furnace’s gas supply is bad news. If the leak goes undetected for long enough, it can pose a serious risk of a fire or explosion. That’s why professional HVAC technicians carefully check your entire system for signs of leaks during every maintenance visit. Technicians can also test and adjust your system to ensure optimal gas flow for smooth, efficient combustion.
Inspections Save Lives
The most important part of any maintenance visit is a detailed inspection of your furnace. This includes a visual inspection of the entire system, careful testing of key components, and a series of rigorous safety checks. If any issues are found, they can be quickly corrected before they become a hazard. For your safety, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends having your furnace inspected annually by a qualified professional.
