Hampton Roads has begun to feel the chill of fall these last few weeks and, as things continue to cool off, there’s no better time to get your heating and air conditioning system tuned up. A tune up makes sure your furnace is running properly and can help you identify any problems you may need to correct before the coldest days of winter arrive. After all, the last thing you want is to only discover your furnace isn’t working properly when you come home from work to find your house harboring sub-zero temperatures.
The benefits of getting a tune-up every spring and fall before the changing weather can be broken into two main categories. The first reason you want to make sure you get your system tuned up is for your own safety. Aside from allowing your home to drop to uncomfortably cold temperatures if it stops working, a faulty furnace also runs the risk of carbon monoxide leaks. If exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide for an extended period of time, your health and life could be at risk. So having a technician make sure your furnace is free of leaks is an important way to stay safe this winter when you’re most likely to be bundled up in your home.
The second reason to make sure your heating and air conditioning system is up to par is energy efficiency. When your system is running properly it uses less energy and does more with the energy it does use. While this is good for the environment, what this ultimately means is that when your furnace is performing at maximum efficiency, it’s saving you money on your energy bills. This means you’ll have more money for the things you want to do during the winter months.
