When your heating oil furnace or boiler are running at peak efficiency, you will save money. Regular furnace maintenance can save you up to 30% on your heating bill. Your furnace requires periodic maintenance to operate up to specifications. Because your furnace can make up about 50% of your energy bill, it is important to keep it clean and tuned. Your annual furnace checkup should be scheduled yearly with a trained technician. The best months to schedule maintenance are between April and August.
Keeping your furnace clean is also a matter of safety. Having annual furnace maintenance will help catch any potential safety risks, and give you peace of mind that your furnace is working properly and up to code. A problem in the furnace system can lead to a dangerous gas leak. An unchecked furnace also runs the risk of carbon monoxide leaks.
Having your furnace tuned regularly maintains your manufacturer’s warranty. A well-maintained furnace will last much longer, so you’ll get the most out of your investment. Knowing the condition of your furnace before the cold weather kicks in will save you the grief of cold nights and cold showers. For example, if all the maintenance in the world can’t save your furnace, you’ll have plenty of time to replace it before the first frost. It is not unheard of to suffer the failure of a very small switch on a fairly new furnace… at the worst possible time.
