While you probably don’t think about your furnace very often, it’s a critical component of keeping your home comfortable. You should schedule maintenance for it every fall. There are five ways you can save money by doing this.

1. Increased Energy Efficiency

Professional maintenance keeps your furnace operating at its peak efficiency. When a furnace isn’t maintained, it will gradually have to work harder and harder to heat your home. By keeping your furnace well maintained, you’ll enjoy lower monthly energy bills.

2. Longer Furnace Life Span

A furnace that receives annual maintenance will probably last years longer than one that hasn’t been well maintained. Replacing a furnace is expensive, so you want it to last as long as possible. You’ll save a lot of money by keeping it from needing to be replaced prematurely.

Northern Air Plumbing & Heating in Aitkin, MN performs furnace maintenance. We recommend that you schedule this service every fall.

3. Prevents Furnace Repairs

By having your furnace maintained professionally, you’ll save money on repair bills. The technician has the opportunity to detect small problems during a tune-up. For example, a part may be loose and just needs to be tightened, or the air filter is clogged and needs to be replaced.

4. Maintenance Agreement

Signing up for an HVAC company’s maintenance agreement can save you money. The agreement may give you a discount on parts and services. Other benefits include flexible scheduling and priority service, so you’re guaranteed your furnace will be tuned-up.

5. Keeps Warranty in Effect

Your furnace has a manufacturer’s warranty that covers defective parts. However, the warranty is only honored if the furnace gets annual tune-ups. A warranty can save you a lot of money, so it’s important to keep it in effect.
