It’s Not Too Soon to Start Thinking About Your Furnace: Don’t Procrastinate
They say “procrastination is the thief of time!” That is probably true for about 50% of our heating customers who wait until the last minute to order preventive maintenance, service or a replacement for their furnace. Do this and you may be without heat when you need it most.
The ideal time for El Paso and Las Cruces homeowners and businesses to start thinking about the furnace is late August/early September. Why? Because HVAC technicians are more available then before the cold weather season sets in. In addition, heating equipment manufacturers offer buying incentives and deals for replacements when the weather is mild and business is slow.
Preventive maintenance is always recommended for early fall. Total Air technicians can check and inspect your furnace for safety and leaks by turning it on for the first time (whether you need it at this time or not) and identify potential problems before the temperatures drop. The benefits of a furnace check-up include:
- Testing for airflow and carbon monoxide
- Check blower motor for proper operation
- Test safety and control circuits
- Brush, clean and check heat exchanger
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Tighten and inspect all electrical wiring
- Test and inspect the thermostat
- Change the filters
Yearly maintenance will help eliminate costly repairs and add years to the life of your furnace. However, it does not correct major problems in furnaces 10 years or older. If this is the case, it is recommended that you replace the furnace with a newer model with higher efficiency, less noise and more comfort.
