Winters in Rogers, Arkansas can be chilly. Having a properly functioning furnace can make all the difference in your home comfort when the weather starts to change. Here are a few reasons why you need a furnace tune-up this fall.

Increased Longevity

Because of its important role in your home’s comfort during the winter season, ensuring that your furnace is in proper working order can help increase how long it lasts. Newer systems with more advanced technology offer enhanced performance but that doesn’t mean that it can’t break down as well. Even small issues can add up over time. A service technician can identify the issues before they lead to overall failure and a need for a furnace replacement.

Reduce Costs

If your furnace isn’t working correctly, there’s a good chance that it’ll be reflected in your utility bills. Whether the issue is a worn down part or a clogged filter, your furnace will have to work harder in order to reach the results demanded by your thermostat settings. More work means more pull on the electric grid, leading to higher energy consumption and ultimately higher bills.

In addition, catching issues during a tune-up can help reduce repair costs. Smaller issues are cheaper to fix while they’re still relatively harmless and tune-ups can help prevent them from happening in the first place.

Plan Ahead

Fall and winter are filled with family holidays and a broken furnace can ruin holiday plans. When your furnace hasn’t been used for a while, there’s a chance that issues may have compounded during the disuse. It’s better to have it checked out before the weather turns frigid than have your furnace break down when you need it most. Holiday seasons tend to be busier times for HVAC technicians due to the volume of calls, so getting a tune-up for your furnace ahead of time can prevent furnace emergencies during the season.
