Will Your Furnace Last Through the Winter?

With winter in full effect  here in Atlanta, you’re probably starting to rely on your heating system full-time to keep you comfortable at home. It’s no secret that you use your heating system the most during winter; but have you thought about the stress that full-time use for months on end could put on your heating system? Even if your furnace seemed to be functioning well when you first turned it on this year, that doesn’t mean it’s going to last you all season.

Schedule Heating Maintenance to Keep Your Furnace Running

The most important thing you can do is schedule heating maintenance for your furnace. During a service visit, a heating professional will clean your furnace, lubricate all moving parts, and optimize it for peak performance all winter long. Your heating professional will also catch any minor repairs that may be needed before they escalate into larger issues. Regular maintenance for your heating system is the key to extending the life of your furnace.

Maintain Your Furnace Between Service Visits

In addition to scheduling furnace maintenance, there are a few simple measures you can take to help extend the life of your furnace. First, be sure to check your furnace’s air filter every month. Your heating professional will take care of this during your annual furnace tune-up, but it’s important to check it in the months between visits, as most filters need to be cleaned or replaced every one to three months. Some units have an indicator light that tells you when your furnace’s air filter is starting to get clogged.

Old Furnace? Consider Replacing Your Unit

If your furnace is malfunctioning, inefficient, or eight to ten years old, it might be time for a replacement. A new, energy efficient furnace will keep your home more comfortable, all while consuming less energy. Trane furnaces have especially high efficiency ratings and come with features like built-in intelligence to make maintenance a cinch. Our financing options make upgrading your furnace more affordable than ever.

Early Bird Furnace Maintenance Before it Gets Cold

Although summer’s over, the temperatures here in the greater Atlanta area haven’t signalled fall entirely. However, before we know it the mercury will drop along with the leaves.

It’s important you’re prepared or else you might be left shivering in a home that isn’t heated properly. Fortunately, by being an early bird with your furnace maintenance you’ll be ready for whatever the temperatures bring.

Why Does Furnace Maintenance Matter?

It might seem premature to call in a professional to tune-up your furnace before it even gets cold outside, however, you’ll be saving yourself headaches in the future and taking advantage of all the benefits as soon as you switch on the heat.

  • Comfort during the cold weather

Servicing your furnace now will ensure it’s able to run throughout the winter, so you stay warm and toasty on the days it matters most.

  • Prevention of high heating bills

A furnace tune-up helps your system run efficiently, so you don’t waste energy or money paying for a home that’s not as cozy as you’d like.

  • Healthier indoor air quality

When an expert comes to service your furnace, they’ll either clean or replace the air filter entirely. This will keep the warm air that circulates throughout your home cleaner and healthier for you and your family. In addition, during maintenance, the venting will be checked so you can rest easy knowing that carbon monoxide from your furnace isn’t endangering your household.

  • Minimized chance of breakdowns and costly repairs

Just like a car that gets regular oil changes and service is less likely to break down unexpectedly, a furnace that’s well-maintained also reduces the chances of surprise failures. While a tune-up will cost a small amount up front, it’s worth it to avoid expensive repair costs down the line.

With winter finally over, the hot Atlanta summer isn’t far away. It’s one of the reasons that so many people use spring as a time to improve home performance, paying particular attention to their air conditioning units. HVAC maintenance is something that often goes overlooked, but anyone who has ever experienced an emergency breakdown on one of the hottest days of the year knows just how important it actually is.

Looking to ensure a comfortable home this summer without breaking the bank? Anchor’s E-Z Pay program is the solution.

Why AC Preventative Maintenance Matters

Let’s face it—most people don’t pay attention to how well their air conditioner is operating — that is, until it finally dies on them (and usually on the worst possible day). This is something that no one wants to deal with and one of the main reasons to consider preventative maintenance.

Even if your HVAC system was top-of-line when first purchased, it will require regular check-ups to operate at peak performance. Otherwise, issues will begin to present themselves—just like with a car or truck.

The benefits of AC preventative maintenance are undeniable, including:

  • Reduced energy bills
  • Boosted home comfort
  • Better indoor air quality
  • Reduced risk of emergency breakdown
  • A safer home environment

The hot summer sun will be beating down on Atlanta sooner than later, and now’s the time to ensure that you’re prepared. Not sure where to start? The team at Anchor AC can help.
