Autumn is the perfect time to winterize your home. These chores could include general maintenance or once-per-year assignments to prepare your home for the upcoming cold weather such as cleaning your  gutters or insulating your windows. But there’s another chore that should be on the top of your list to help winterize your home – a Furnace Tune Up from Bigham’s One Hour Heating & Air.

It’s always a good idea to run your furnace before the cold sets in to make sure it’s working properly. Even if your furnace is working fine, an annual tune up is beneficial for many reasons.

Keep Your Home Warm & Energy Efficient

Furnace tune up

Think about your car. When you change your car’s oil on a regular basis it runs better and lasts longer. If you put off regular maintenance, your car’s performance will suffer and you may have bigger problems down the road. The same rings true with your furnace. With so many moving parts, it’s essential to have a regular furnace tune up just like you would with your car.

There are many benefits of regular maintenance. For one, it can save you money. When your furnace is running at peak performance, you’ll have maximum energy efficiency, meaning that very little heat is lost. Keeping your HVAC system running properly will help lower energy bills in the winter.

When your furnace is running great, you can rely on it for the entire winter. HVAC experts say 75 percent of no-heat calls in the winter are related to a lack of maintenance. Repair bills or the cost of a new HVAC system are way more expensive than having routine maintenance performed.
