Fall is the best time to have your furnace checked. It will ensure that you make it through the winter with no heating issues.
It’s February in St. Louis – you’ve been running your furnace now for several months. If you forgot to have your furnace serviced in the fall, hopefully, it’s running well for you.
Many homeowners forget to have their furnaces serviced and go through the winter with no issues. However, if you begin having problems with your heater, you’ll have wished you called the service tech out in the fall. That’s because fall is the best time to have your furnace checked. It will ensure that you make it through the winter with no heating issues.
Why Having Your Furnace Serviced is Important
When left unserviced, it can suddenly stop working and leave you and your family in the cold. In addition, it can be a health hazard. Furnace maintenance can reveal a carbon monoxide leak. This potentially deadly problem can be detected before the situation becomes serious.
Carbon monoxide exposure can lead to headaches, nausea, dizziness, and death. An estimated 500 individuals die each year, and another 15,000 are hospitalized from exposure to carbon monoxide.
Poor furnace maintenance can also cause your energy bills to rise as it will run less efficiently and work harder to heat your home.
