Don’t Forget to Schedule Your Furnace Tune-Up

Fall will be here before you know it bringing chilly temperatures with it. At Schneller & Knochelmann Plumbing, Heating & Air, we know as soon as the cold weather gets here, everyone will turn on their furnace for the first time in a long time. Unfortunately, some of those older furnaces won’t turn on.

And, as usual, we’ll get inundated with repair calls all at the same time. This sometimes keeps us from delivering our usual fast service. It’s important to get a furnace tune-up once a year. But if you have an older furnace and haven’t had a tune-up yet, you may want to err on the side of caution and schedule a pre-season furnace tune-up to make sure your furnace will perform when you need it. Of course, there are many other great benefits to getting a furnace tune-up. Here are a few:

Avoid Breakdowns

A furnace tune-up will greatly reduce the chances of an unexpected breakdown in the middle of winter. While we can’t guarantee you’ll have no problems, during a furnace tune-up, our technicians will replace worn parts, lubricate moving parts and clean any dirty parts. That usually covers anything that was close to causing a problem, which means you’ll be more likely to have a trouble-free winter.

Prevent Dangers Such as Fire or Carbon Monoxide

During a furnace tune-up, our technicians check for fire hazards as well as for carbon monoxide leaks. Every year there are families who suffer from carbon monoxide sickness and even death. We make sure your furnace is running safely.

Beat the Rush

When you call now to schedule a pre-season furnace tune-up, you’re more likely to get a time that is most convenient for you. If you wait until furnace season, you may have to wait for service because of the volume of customers who need help at the same time. Be smart and proactive and enjoy your warm, cozy home on the first cold day instead of waiting for a service technician to show up.

Make Your Furnace Last Longer

Replacing a furnace is not an inexpensive endeavor. You want to get the most out of your current furnace. Regular maintenance will extend the life of your furnace by making it run more efficiently and smoothly. You don’t drive your car without changing the oil, so why would you run your furnace without regular maintenance as well?

Lower Your Energy Bills

A clean, freshly tuned-up furnace is going to run more efficiently than a dirty, neglected furnace. Our Schneller technicians clean, lubricate, tighten and repair parts on your furnace so it will run smoothly and efficiently. This will save you money on utility bills all season long.
