When winter tightens its grasp on Plainfield and the surrounding areas, the cold, wet weather places your furnace under tremendous strain. All that extra work can certainly cause a great deal of wear and tear on your heating system.

Contact us to schedule a furnace maintenance appointment, and let us help you make sure your home is ready for winter when it returns.
How Often Should I Schedule Furnace Maintenance?
Furnace maintenance should take place at least once each year. Preferably, you should schedule your appointment during late summer or early fall. That’s the perfect time to combat the months of sitting idle while still catching potential problems before you need to start using the heat again. It’ll get you all set for winter, so you won’t have to worry about the furnace not working when you need it most.
What Are the Benefits of Regular Furnace Maintenance?
Having your furnace inspected and maintained annually offers several benefits. We’ve already mentioned the aspect of making sure your heating system is ready to go to work when cold weather returns, but that’s only part of the picture. Maintenance also helps to prevent unexpected breakdowns during the winter months. From there, the list goes on.
Lower Heating Costs
Furnaces lose a percentage of their efficiency each year without proper upkeep from your local furnace experts. That means they’ll consume more energy and cost more to operate. Routine maintenance, though, can save you up to 30 percent on your heating expenses. That’s money you can use for other things, like getting ready for the holidays.
Gas furnaces can develop leaks over time. They also emit carbon monoxide. Both of those issues place your family and home at risk. If you have an electric furnace, its power connections can become worn and frayed, which also makes for a potentially dangerous situation. During our maintenance calls, we check for ventilation clogs, gas leaks, worn electrical connections, and other issues, and we take care of them so you don’t have to worry about safety.
Better Indoor Air Quality
Routine maintenance also improves your indoor air quality. Dust, debris, and other contaminants gather in your furnace and ductwork, and all those particles will keep recirculating through your home if they’re not removed promptly. As part of our maintenance services, we clean the furnace to get rid of the buildup, so it can’t just keep filtering back out into your house. We also change your air filters if needed to ensure they’re able to remove viruses, bacteria, and other airborne contaminants the way they’re supposed to.
In addition to those advantages, furnace maintenance can extend the life of your heating system. Furnaces are generally designed to last for ten years or so. With annual maintenance, your furnace could last up to twice as long. That means you may only have to replace your heating system half as often, which is yet another way maintenance can save you money.
