In the El Cerrito area, winter will soon be upon us. Although we might not have days that are as cold as other parts of the country, our nights are truly chilly and in order to be comfortable throughout the winter, our heaters need to work well. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to simply have a heater and hope that it works for the few months out of the year that it’s required.
You need to maintain your heating unit to ensure it’s ready for the colder weather and can handle heating your home. While it may seem like a hassle and an effort that doesn’t have many rewards, having a heating tune-up performed will actually help you avoid risks in the future. So why should you act now?
1. Avoid Costly Emergency Repairs
If you have your heating unit tuned up prior to running it daily, you are much more likely to fix any underlying issues early. However, if you begin heating your home without maintaining your unit, you’re much more likely to run into problems which cause your unit to stop working. While this can result in expensive emergency repairs, it can also leave you stranded in a cold home during the winter which is something you could avoid with preventative maintenance.
2. Avoid Carbon Monoxide Leaks
A leaky furnace can suffer from incomplete combustion, which releases carbon monoxide into the air. By servicing your furnace now, a certified professional will check for any leaks and measure carbon monoxide levels. Avoid putting yourself and your family at risk with the possibility of deadly carbon monoxide in your home this winter.
3. Avoid Early Furnace Replacement
Your furnace should be able to run for years, especially if it’s a newer unit. However, without proper maintenance, the efficiency and lifespan of your heating unit can be greatly reduced. By servicing your unit seasonally, you’ll be able to extend its lifespan and avoid having to replace your furnace early.
4. Avoid Paying More for Utility Bills
If your heater is running inefficiently, you’ll spend much more than necessary on heating bills in the colder months. With adequate maintenance, your unit can be optimized to run at its full potential and help save you money on excessive energy bills.
