Once the cooler weather hits here in Knoxville, TN this fall, you are going to want the inside of your home toasty and comfortable. This means turning on your furnace or heat pump. Long before the first night you will need it, you should have your heating system cleaned and checked by a professional from AA-AIR Company. You may not think this maintenance is important, and you can save money by forgoing it, but here are five reasons you should call to schedule your appointment today.

1. Professional maintenance prevents unexpected and costly breakdowns

When you schedule your furnace or heat pump clean and check on a regular basis you are preventing breakdowns. By having a trained professional inspect and clean your system, many impending repairs or weaknesses can be spotted. This gives you an opportunity to take care of the issue before it becomes a middle-of-the-night emergency.

2. Professional maintenance saves on monthly energy bills

By having your furnace or heat pump cleaned regularly your furnace can work more efficiently, saving you energy. Dirt in the system can diminish airflow and cause your unit to work harder. Working harder means using more energy to heat your home. A clean system operates more efficiently and saves money on your utility bill.

3. Professional maintenance keeps you and your family safe

When your furnace is not inspected and cleaned before you use it every fall, you run the risk of missing a possible unsafe issue or repair. A trained professional will observe your furnace or heat pump operation and test safety components in the machine. They also inspect the gas heat exchanger for cracks or deficiencies. According to AHRI (Air-Conditioning, Heating & Refrigeration Institute) this can leak toxic carbon monoxide into your home’s air, and you may not be aware of it at the beginning stages of the problem. (LINK: http://www.ahrinet.org/Homeowners/Improve-Safety/Gas-Furnace-Safety) Cracks or holes in the heat exchanger can lead to dangerous levels of the poisonous gas in your home. Our professional technician can spot and address safety issues prior to them becoming unsafe.

4. Professional maintenance extends the life of your heating system

Your furnace or heat pump is meant to run smoothly and efficiently, with an expected lifespan between 13 to 18 years depending on type. Without maintenance and cleaning the dirt and debris accumulates and causes problems. This causes your system to work harder and can bring on major component failure sooner. Keeping things running smoothly helps your furnace live a long and healthy life.

5. It keeps the warranty valid

Your furnace most likely came with a manufacturer’s warranty. Many of these warranties specify regular maintenance needs to be performed to keep the system in tip-top shape and to prevent unneeded repairs. By not scheduling these maintenance appointments your chance of incurring repairs increases and may void your warranty.

To ensure the best results for both your heating system and your pocketbook, be sure to schedule your heating system inspection and maintenance appointment before the cold weather hits. Call one of our expert AA-AIR Company technicians at 865-689-5290 to make your appointment today.
