What Are the Benefits of Joining a Planned Maintenance Program for Furnace Upkeep?
Keeping up with the maintenance of your furnace is important. By staying on top of this, you’re able to spot any issues from the beginning, saving you both time and money in the long run. Additionally, you’re helping to keep the system healthy, which will result in it lasting longer. Furnace upkeep is important, but it doesn’t have to be something that you need to add to your plate. We get that you’re busy. That’s why at Entek we offer a Planned Maintenance Program for furnace upkeep. Let us worry about these things so you don’t have to.
Here are just some of the reasons why you should join a Planned Maintenance Program for furnace upkeep.
You Don’t Have to Remember Anything
That’s right, let us do all the remembering for you. Our service department will keep track of it all—your system, warranty information, and equipment. If maintenance is due, we’ll send out a reminder to you, letting you know that it’s time for one of our employees to come by and service your furnace. We tend to recommend this maintenance happening twice a year, in the spring and the fall. By doing this, your furnace will continue to run safely and efficiently, especially during the winter months when it’s being used more. Plus, it’ll help extend the life of your furnace.
You’ll Be Lowering Your Utility Bills
Utility bills are an expensive part of being a homeowner. We understand wanting to save money wherever you can, which is why becoming a member of our Planned Maintenance Program is a great idea. A furnace that runs efficiently means that you’ll spend less money on other costs, such as electricity, heating, and cooling.
Additionally, by staying on top of your furnace upkeep, our team will be able to spot problems early, rather than catching them later when they’ve grown larger. Taking care of any issues or potential issues from the get-go will save you money later on. The bigger the problem, the larger the cost, so you don’t want to let that issue escalate.
Your Air Quality Will Be Healthier
By keeping up with the maintenance on your furnace, you’ll not only be keeping your furnace healthy, but you’ll be keeping your air quality healthy as well. A furnace that’s properly maintained will prevent any problems with air quality. Dust builds up in any home, even the cleanest. It’s important to remember that it builds up on the filter of your furnace too.
By having an HVAC company like Entek come in regularly, you’re ensuring that your filters and coils will be clean. This leads to a better breathing environment for everyone living in your home. If the furnace isn’t maintained regularly, it can become a breeding ground for mold, bacteria, and dirt. This can lead to or aggravate existing respiratory problems for those in the home.
In addition to this, who wants to clean a filter themselves? Let us handle that for you.
You’ll Have Fewer Emergency Repairs
No one wants to be stuck without their furnace during a cold front. What if it happens during the middle of the night when no one is open? By joining a Planned Maintenance Program, you are making sure that this is less likely to happen to you. Furnaces that are professionally well-maintained are less likely to fail during the months of hard use. This should give you more peace of mind as you are pumping the heat during the months of December through March. It’s important to keep the unit up-to-date with inspections, but if you have joined our program, we’ll worry about that for you!
You Don’t Need to Worry About the Warranty
In the event that a repair does need to be made, our technicians will know if the part or component of the furnace is still under a warranty. You won’t need to provide us with this—we’ll already know because we’ll have it on record. We keep a list of all warranty expiration dates. Additionally, our technicians are sure to check the parts prior to this date to make sure there are no existing problems that should be taken care of before the warranty expires.
You’re Extending the Life and Efficiency of the System
By having us come in on a routine basis twice a year, you’re making sure that your furnace is at its maximal efficiency and life span. According to research, dirty or unmaintained units have to work at a rate of 20 percent more to produce the same amount of heating (or cooling) as a machine that’s well-maintained. This is quite a difference! Less energy being used means less wear and tear on your furnace. Less stress is being placed on the machine. All of this results in a longer life span and allows it to work at a higher level. This also results in simpler maintenance needing to be done on your furnace when our technicians are there, rather than something more drastic.
Our NATE-certified technicians are properly trained to keep your furnace running at high efficiency. They are also trained to identify any issues early, before they escalate. This allows the maintenance to be much smoother and quicker.
Above are some of the perks to joining a Planned Maintenance Program for your furnace upkeep. We know that life is busy and that you are juggling a lot of different things. Why give yourself something else to stress about? There’s no need to add your furnace upkeep to that list when we can worry about that for you. Give us a call today to learn more. We’ll be happy to add you to our program. We look forward to seeing you every spring and fall!
