Deceases Heating CostsOur furnaces work hard around the clock throughout the winter to provide heat for our home. Usually, the wear and tear from the strain of operating day and night faithfully, along with the dust and dirt building up in and around HVAC equipment, takes its toll. Wear and tear comprise a furnace’s heating efficiency as it requires more power than before to keep it going. When a homeowner consistently maintains heating equipment, they avoid this expensive spike in residential heating costs. A system that’s taken care of is a system that’s loved. A cared-for system runs at its best, as it should, and shares that love right back in relief in its bills.
Avoid Furnace Breakdowns
There’s nothing like losing heat or experiencing a furnace breakdown during the dead of winter. Unfortunately, Ohio winters are known for being cold. Meanwhile, an estimated 85% of the repairs performed on furnace breakdowns can be linked to a general lack of maintenance. This is why maintenance is done every year during the fall, or early winter will prevent the vast majority of the furnace repairs a homeowner will otherwise have to deal with.
Prolong Equipment Lifespan
Home heating systems are expensive to replace. We all want to make our furnaces last as long as possible. The best way to do this, and guarantee they’re optimally running and useful for as long as possible is by utilizing seasonal maintenance. Without regular maintenance, furnaces last almost as half as long as they should, according to experts and manufacturers. This is something else to keep in mind: Installing a brand new system sooner than is necessary is going to be far more expensive than any maintenance visit you will ever have to make.
Keeping the Warranty Active
Whenever we install a new unit, we provide our customer with a warranty from the furnace’s manufacturers, which requires maintenance every year by a NATE-certified heating technician to remain valid. If the homeowner fails to do this (even if they forget once), the warranty isn’t any good. If this happens and something goes wrong, the customer is stuck paying for the repairs on their own money. We say play it smart: Standard maintenance keeps the home heating system protected from potential manufacturing flaws.

Common Furnace Maintenance Questions & Answers
How can I avoid furnace repairs?
A homeowner’s best defense against future furnace repairs is seasonal maintenance. By properly maintaining your heating system, a heating technician can catch performance issues and allow you to address them before they cause breakdowns or system damage. This helps you to reduce wear and tear that causes system failures. During preventative maintenance appointments, one of our furnace technicians’ tasks effectively protects against breakdowns while improving energy efficiency and home comfort.
How can I keep my system running smoothly?
In addition to preventative maintenance tune-ups, keeping on schedule with furnace filter changes also helps reduce the likelihood of furnace breakdowns and ensures proper airflow. A clean filter enables air to move through the system, helping the furnace operate more efficiently properly. Conversely, when the filter is dirty, your furnace must work harder to move air, adding stress and increasing the likelihood of a surprise furnace repair.
How much does a new furnace cost?
If not properly maintained, homeowners end up having to replace their furnaces sooner than necessary. A new home heating system can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $7,200 or more, depending on the model you choose and the size of your house. The average cost of installing a mid-efficiency furnace is $1,500 to $2,500. Mid-efficiency furnaces have an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating of 80 to 89 percent.
