The average American household spends almost 50% of its total energy expenditures on heating, running from late fall to early spring. In a study conducted by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, an HVAC system that’s undergone a recent air conditioning, furnace or heat pump inspection and is running at peak efficiency consumes up to 30% less fuel or energy.
Imagine being able to save up to a third on your winter heating expenses in the coming season! Yes, this is possible, and you can do it by keeping up with your furnace or boiler’s maintenance program. Here are a few reasons from our experts at J&M for why you should schedule a tune-up soon.
An inefficient furnace or boiler can cost more in the long run than it would to schedule simple HVAC repairs for minor issues such as problems with window air conditioners and rain. Seasonal tune-ups help keep your system running efficiently, enabling it to provide more heat using less fuel. The savings are two-fold: you’re saving money by using energy or fuel more efficiently, as well as avoiding potentially expensive emergency repairs.
Longer Life Span
Most furnace systems last for approximately 15 years, barring extraordinary circumstances. A properly-maintained system can run for several more years past this average. That’s a few additional years that you won’t have to worry about replacing your old unit.
Fall is the peak season for heating and air conditioning service companies for a good reason. This change of season is the best time to get your cooling units ready for a period of rest, dust the cobwebs off your furnace or boiler and get your heating system ready for continued use. It’s advisable to schedule a service visit early in the season to avoid the general rush of scheduling HVAC maintenance and repairs.
