GIVES YOUR FURNACE A LONGER LIFE

Issues left unchecked can add up to a breakdown of your unit. Preventive maintenance helps discover problems early on so that you stay warm in your home during the chilly season. In addition, a small problem discovered during an inspection can usually be resolved quickly and inexpensively. If left unchecked, a small problem will turn into a big problem that is expensive to fix.

AVOID CARBON MONOXIDE LEAKS

If there are cracks in your furnace, gases like carbon monoxide can enter into your home. Carbon monoxide is odorless and can be deadly – so make sure you install detectors in your house to keep your family safe.

RUST AND DUST BUILDS UP

The right inspector ensures they’ll clean your unit right. Buildup of any kind can create spaces that trap gas or cause hot spots.

WORN OUT PARTS = FURNACE NOT FUNCTIONING

Your furnace’s parts will wear out eventually which can cause it to stop working completely. Get these items repaired or replaced so that you have a working unit when you need it. After all, it is far better to replace a worn part that is still working than have to deal with a heating issue due to a part that has broken.

INCREASES EFFICIENCY

Why work harder when you can work smarter? The more you maintain your unit, the better output you’ll get and it’ll save you money on those monthly bills.

KEEPS YOUR WARRANTY VALID
