Does My Furnace Need to be Cleaned and Maintained Regularly?

Published On: April 1, 2020Categories: Furnaces

In order to optimize the functioning of your furnace system, it needs to be regularly cleaned and maintained. While changing a filter or the thermostat setting are tasks you can take care of on your own, it’s important to follow a regular maintenance routine by professionals. Ultimately, keeping your furnace clean can help you avoid a variety of problems and frequent repair expenses every season.

Furnaces are often a magnet for dirt and debris which can get redistributed around your home and decrease both indoor air quality and the lifespan of your equipment. Here are a few more important reasons why your furnace needs to be cleaned and maintained on a regular basis:

  • Ensures efficient and effective operation
  • Extends the lifespan of your equipment
  • Improves indoor air quality and overall health
  • Preventative maintenance is cost-effective

Have you noticed your heating bills slowly increase month by month? Or perhaps, you can’t quite maintain a comfortable temperature throughout your home?

In these cases, a dirty furnace may be to blame. That’s why it’s important to keep it clean and follow a regular maintenance schedule. While basic cleaning and maintenance tasks can be performed on your own, there are some aspects of your furnace that are best handled by professionals.

Our certified and experienced technicians can help give your system the thorough clean it needs and advise you on a maintenance plan that is best suited to your lifestyle. Try to book furnace tune-ups in the fall, so you are ready for winter, and in the spring, before your system goes dormant over the warmer seasons.
