Your furnace contributes a lot to your comfort and health during the cold months. All manufacturers recommend HVAC maintenance annually to check for issues. You do need fall furnace maintenance to protect yourself and your home in Quincy, IL, and here are four reasons why.
Reduces Furnace Failures

Our HVAC technicians inspect and clean your furnace to keep it running smoothly. During the inspection, they can catch any small issues before they can damage your system. The best way to protect yourself during the winter months is to have a heating system inspection in the fall.
Optimizes Energy Efficiency
Getting fall furnace maintenance for your heating system increases its performance and energy efficiency. During maintenance, we’ll change the filter plus clean additional areas to remove dirt, dust and debris. Debris in your system can increase HVAC energy usage by 15%.
A dirty furnace works harder to keep your home comfortable, which results in higher energy bills. A dirty furnace also increases the number of repairs and shortens your system’s lifespan. Keeping up on fall maintenance lowers your energy consumption and catches issues early, which will save you money.
Extends the Lifespan of Your Furnace
Your heating systems includes many parts working together, just like your cooling system. The average furnace lasts 15 to 20 years. With annual fall maintenance, your furnace should last that long, if not longer, and save you money by not making you replace it prematurely.
Maintains Your Manufacturer’s Warranty
Many high-quality furnaces have 10-year warranty options because top furnaces can last up to 20 years. If you ever need to warranty repairs on your furnace, the manufacturer will require your service records. Getting regular fall furnace maintenance shows that you took care of your system.
