You hear it all the time, “You should have your furnace inspected at least once annually,” but seldom do many households follow that advice. This is because they assume their furnace is in excellent condition and HVAC specialists only recommend the need for a tune-up because they want to make money. Many of the benefits of an annual furnace tune-up are not necessarily visible right away, and it is more of an investment into your household to save you money, keep you safe and keep you happy. Here are a few welcome surprises that can come with an annual furnace tune-up:


Your Energy Bill Is Much More Affordable


Since most households rely so highly on their furnace to keep their families warm in the Winter months, your furnace can cost you up to 40% of your energy bill. If the Winter lasts as long as Canadian winters usually do, it can be a very expensive Winter. When household owners hear that they need a “tune-up” on their furnace, they immediately assume that it will be a costly investment that will do very little than slightly improve performance. Tune-ups do not always require massive labour. Doing simple things such as replacing air filters will help enhance efficiency which will save you money in the long run. If you want a lasting furnace for years to come, we recommend a furnace tune-up today.


Helps Catch Gas Leaks


This point is very important for you and your family’s safety. Since most furnaces use natural gas as the energy source to heat their homes, it is possible through years of activity that some fittings or piping have been weathered which can pose a risk for your safety. Any issue involving natural gas can lead to catastrophic devastation, and because it can accumulate slowly, you may have no idea that there are any issues. The same concern is posed for carbon monoxide, and because it is odourless and invisible to the eye, it can be a fatal accident if uncaught. The professionals at Absolute Comfort take special priority in ensuring your home is safe and sound this upcoming Winter.


It Will Reduce Any Issues or Shutdown, Mid-Winter


As you can imagine, during the dark days of Winter, calls for HVAC services are in high demand because many furnaces are underperforming or have completely broken. Due to this, there will be waiting lists for HVAC specialists for repairs or tune-ups. Get your tune-up today, skip the line, and ensure that your furnace is fully functioning all Winter long. We have had many calls from homes saying their furnace stopped working in the middle of the night, leaving them cold at 3 in the morning. Ensure that doesn’t happen to you and contact Absolute Comfort in Windsor, Ontario today! We will come out and diagnose your HVAC system so that you can enjoy the winter with absolute comfort.
