To keep your furnace running efficiently in Ruckersville, VA, it’s important to schedule annual professional maintenance. Furnace tune-ups can eliminate the need for many repairs, ensure a long lifespan for the system, increase efficiency and protect any warranties.

1. Prevent Repairs

While maintenance can’t prevent all problems from arising, chances are you’ll only need one or two minor repairs during the year. This is much better than dealing with breakdowns or needing to replace a costly component like the motor or heat exchanger. It translates to significant savings in the long run.

2. Extend Lifespan

Gas furnaces can last 10 to 15 years, while oil and electric furnaces can run well for up to 25 years. This can only happen, though, with maintenance; without it, problems will grow and put premature wear and tear on the furnace, shortening its life. Considering the average price of a brand-new system, you can see how important it is to put off replacement for as long as possible.

3. Energy-Efficient Performance

Maintenance can address dirt build-up, faulty switches and other issues that are hindering efficiency. The result will be less energy waste and quite possibly a significant decrease in how much you pay each month for heat.

4. Warranty Protection

If you have a warranty on your system, note that it may become void if you’re not getting maintenance for it. The manufacturer can take the lack of maintenance as a sign of negligence on your part and choose not to cover any part of repairs for the system.
