Signs You Need a Heating Tune-Up
If you haven’t maintained your furnace in the last two years, it’s a good idea to schedule a heating tune-up right away. Here are additional signs you need a heating tune-up sooner rather than later.
Your furnace is more than 10 years old.
A furnace over 10 years old is a major risk for safety and performance reasons. As your furnace ages, it becomes less efficient and more likely to break down. It starts to become a vicious cycle where the furnace uses more energy to heat your home, which raises your utility bills and puts extra strain on the system.
Your furnace isn’t heating evenly.
If you notice that some rooms in your house are significantly warmer or cooler than others, it’s a sign that your furnace isn’t working properly. An issue with the ductwork or blower fan can cause uneven heating.
Your furnace is making strange noises.
If you hear banging, squealing, or rattling coming from your furnace, it’s time for a heater tune-up. These strange noises may indicate loose parts or a build-up of dirt and debris.
Your furnace is cycling on and off more than usual.
If you notice that your furnace turns on and off more frequently than normal, it’s a sign that something is wrong. Your furnace may be overworking itself to heat your home, which can lead to a breakdown.
Your furnace is blowing cold air.
This is a sure sign that something is wrong with your furnace. If the furnace is blowing cold air, the ignition system may require repairs. This is a serious issue that you need to fix as soon as possible.
Your furnace is leaving soot on your walls or ceiling.
As furnaces age, they may leave soot on your walls or ceiling. During a tune-up, we’ll inspect your furnace for soot and clean it to eliminate a potential fire hazard.
You’re paying more for heating costs than usual.
Even if your furnace is only a few years old, it can become less efficient over time. If you notice that your heating costs are going up even though you’re not using your furnace any more than usual, it’s a sign that you need a tune-up.
You don’t remember the last time you had a tune-up.
When you can’t remember the last time you had your furnace serviced, it’s probably been too long. Depending on how often you use your furnace, you should have it serviced at least once a year.
Why It's Important to Get a Furnace Tune-Up?
Getting a furnace tune-up is important for several reasons. Here are just a few:
extend the life of your furnace.
Just like with any other mechanical equipment, regular maintenance is key to keeping your furnace running smoothly. By getting a tune-up every year, you can help to extend the life of your furnace.
improve the efficiency of your furnace.
Over time, furnaces can start to lose their efficiency. By getting a tune-up, you can help to restore your furnace’s efficiency and lower your heating costs.
prevent costly repairs.
By catching problems early, a tune-up can help to prevent more serious and costly repairs down the line. It’s always cheaper to fix a problem before it becomes a bigger issue.
improve the safety of your furnace.
A furnace that isn’t operating properly can be a safety hazard. By getting a tune-up, you can help to ensure that your furnace is running safely and efficiently.
improve the indoor air quality in your home.
A furnace that isn’t running properly can circulate dust and other pollutants through your home. This can cause problems for people with allergies or respiratory conditions. A tune-up can help to improve the indoor air quality in your home.
