Furnace Tune-Up and Safety

A yearly furnace inspection could save on your energy bills and keep you safe this winter.

Before the cold weather hits, it is recommended to have a HVAC professional service your furnace to keep it in good running order and prevent it from quitting this winter when you need it most.

An annual furnace inspection and service will prolong the life of the system, save energy and even decrease health risks.

A furnace inspection can reveal carbon monoxide leaks, which are hard to detect because the gas is colorless and odorless. Carbon monoxide can lead to headaches, dizziness, nausea and even death. An estimated 500 people die each year, and 15,000 people are taken to emergency rooms, because of exposure.

Not maintaining your furnace — whether it’s gas or electric — can cause it to run less efficiently, making it work even harder, therefore increasing your monthly energy bills.
