It’s common for people in Austin get an annual AC tune-up because of the intense heat during summer. However, many people underestimate the importance of furnace tune-ups in the fall. Austin winters are usually pretty mild, but don’t let that fool you. Here are just a few of the reasons why furnace tune-ups are just as important as AC tune-ups.
Keep your heater’s warranty valid
Most manufacturer warranties on heating systems require annual maintenance to stay valid. Almost 75% of all winter calls could be prevented or less costly with annual maintenance.
Extend the life of your system
Just as you have regular maintenance done on your vehicle, you should also have regular maintenance done on your heating and cooling systems. They are expensive units and you want to get as much life out of them as you can.
Keep your family safe
Even small issues, such as a cracked heat exchanger, can lead to gas or carbon monoxide leaks. A properly trained technician will be able to catch brewing issues and make repairs before it turns into a larger, more costly issue.
Increased energy efficiency
When your heating system is operating at peak condition, without any repairs needed, it will use less energy. Ultimately, this will save you money on utility bills.
