Throughout those cold winter days in South Jersey, it is important to make sure your heating source can keep up and won’t fail on you when put to the test. There are a few simple tasks you can do to improve the longevity of your system so hopefully, you won’t require furnace repair in South Jersey.
Changing the filter
It is imperative to change the filter for your HVAC system because as the unit continues to run it can build up debris causing the unit to run harder to allow more air to pass through the system. With the unit working harder it can cause strain on other major components of the system shortening the life span of the system.
- Fante’s can provide a filter with every maintenance for your system.
Turning Down The Thermostat
Whenever you’re not home it can be cost-effective to lower the temperature on the thermostat. In doing so, the unit may not run as long, which can result in lower utility bills saving you money!
- Fante’s can provide you with a programmable thermostat in order to customize your daily schedule so you don’t have to worry about it.
This is an extremely imperative factor to keep your system up and running when those cold winter days hit!
Here’s how a furnace tune-up benefits you:
Of all the benefits this is the most important. When performing a heater tune-up, our techs perform a thorough inspection looking for any developing safety hazards, such as a cracked heat exchanger or loose gas fittings. Making sure that your heater is operating safely is our primary concern for you and your family.
It’s important to know that your heater will be working properly when the temperature drops. We do offer emergency repair service, but we’d much rather help you avoid these problems before the frigid weather approaches. A tune-up ensures that your furnace will be running at peak performance or we will identify problems before they become hazardous or costly.
Extend Heater Life
You want your furnace to last for many years before you have to replace it. Replacing your furnace can be expensive! Maintenance will help your furnace achieve a longer more efficient life.
A furnace that isn’t cleaned or tuned-up regularly will start to wear down faster. Things like extra friction on the motor or its burners struggling to produce enough heat, which causes the furnace to draw more power to run. Not to mention, the longer your unit runs the more electricity you use resulting in higher utility bills. Maintenance will help a furnace retain 95% of its energy efficiency rating for most of its lifetime.
Many furnaces manufacturers require an annual inspection and tune-up from a licensed HVAC professional for your warranty to be valid. Make sure your furnace keeps this important protection.
