Just like your car needs regular oil changes, your furnace and air conditioner need regular tune-ups too. Your furnace is constantly working in the winter just as your air conditioner is constantly running in the summer. These machines have moving parts, belts, fans, motors, coils, etc. These parts need to be checked, tightened, lubricated, and occasionally replaced when they show wear. We want to make sure your AC and furnace keep running smoothly with no breakdowns. That’s why the AC and furnace pros at Lesco Plumbing, Heating & Cooling put together this list of benefits you’ll get when you have a furnace and/or air conditioner tune-up.
Benefits of Regular Furnace and AC Tune-Ups
Comfort, convenience, safety, and peace of mind all come with regular furnace and AC maintenance visits. Besides keeping you comfortable, tune-ups keep your equipment running smoothly and efficiently. Here are some important reasons to have regular tune-ups:
- Detect deadly carbon monoxide leaks in gas furnaces – Sleep easy at night knowing your family is safe from odorless and invisible carbon monoxide gas.
- Prevent unexpected breakdowns – When all of the internal working parts have been checked, lubricated and tightened, your chance of a breakdown is very slim.
- Save money on energy bills – By keeping your air conditioner and furnace operating at the highest possible rate of efficiency, your system won’t be working harder than it has to and you will save money on heating and cooling bills all season.
- Keep your manufacturer warranties valid – Manufacturer warranties usually require regular maintenance to continue to be covered. Don’t end up paying for repairs that should be covered because the warranty is invalid.
- Extend the life of your equipment – By keeping your equipment in tiptop shape, you’ll help to get the longest life out of your AC and furnace.
