The Benefits of Regular Maintenance on Your Furnace

November 3, 2020 | Blog

When it’s cold outside, naturally you’ll want to turn on the heater in your home. What you might not think about is the fact that your heating unit or furnace needs maintenance to work properly and efficiently. Questions like when, why, and how are common, so let us break it down and tell you about the benefits of regular maintenance to your home’s heating system.

When Should I Get My Furnace or Heating Unit Checked?

Your system will likely be coated in dust, dirt, hair and other pollutants, since it hasn’t been used in months. The average home should have a furnace or heating unit tune-up before every cold season. This ensure any issues are fixed before you need your heater most.

Why Does Heating System Maintenance Benefit me?

There are a few benefits to having regular maintenance of your home’s heating system, so let’s list a few.

  • Keep your home and family safe: While issues with your furnace or heating system are usually inconvenient, more than anything, they can potentially be dangerous – even fatal. Among other things, a regular heater tune-up will test your system for carbon monoxide issues.
  • Reduced risk of failure: Like most things, regular maintenance on your heating system will make it far less likely to have issues in the future. This gives you peace of mind during the colder months.
  • Increased comfort: With maintenance comes the better distribution of heat throughout your home and fewer cold spots, keeping you warm all throughout the winter.
  • Save money: The more efficient your system, the less electricity it will need, keeping costs down.

How Do I Service My Heating System?

Your furnace or heating unit is not something you should try and maintain yourself. It is always recommended to use a trusted, professional service to check your system.

What Our Customers Have To Say

Good Rebates

This is a review for a complete HVAC system replacement from Big Mountain. I started at the SMUD website looking for the best rebate program and found a list of contractors there. I vetted out companies that had a lower number of completed jobs per the SMUD rebate program data.

Very Professional

Had my A/C go out yesterday, called Big Mountain today and they had a serviceman in my area of Lincoln, he was here within a half hour and fix my unit in a very professional manner, and the cost was reasonable. I was very impressed with the company and the serviceman.

I had a appointment with them between 1-3 and one of their staff members called me and kept me updated when they will arrive which was nice. Steve arrived on time and was really nice for explaining what could the cause be. My ac fan was working but cool air wasn’t coming out.
