If you read one article about Furnace Clean & Checks…Read this one
As many of us start to fire up our furnaces in the coming weeks, I wanted to make sure to take some time to talk about the furnace check. Think of your furnace like you think of your car. You wouldn’t drive your car 100,000 miles without changing the oil. Regular furnace preventative maintenance is the best way to be sure that your furnace will run without a hitch this winter. Not only can it help to avoid you waking up on a frigid February morning in a 40 degree house, but it can also keep your energy bill from getting out of control.
Why do I need a professional?
You might be wondering why you need to call in a professional to do your annual furnace clean and check. To that, I will respond – because you wouldn’t want an auto-mechanic performing your open heart surgery. Our guys, for example, are trained in this field and some even have an upwards of 20 years of experience. They know the ins and outs of your furnace like they know the back of their own hand. Here at Northwest, our technicians go through a checklist of 35 different items. They can complete the tune up quickly and efficiently as well as give you a heads up if they for see any upcoming issues. This means that they could give you a warning if something looks like it is going to break on your furnace to give you a chance to save up some cash to fix it.
Although it may sound – and feel – like things are running smoothly with your major home appliance, without checking out the equipment thoroughly – you have no way of knowing if your family is going to wake up cold tomorrow morning or if your furnace will continue to keep them warm throughout these next few bitterly cold months.
If you would like to have one of our technicians come out and perform a Clean & Check on your furnace, give us a call (563) 391-1344.
