Why Are Furnace Cleanings So Important?

Dec 17, 2019

Winter is already here and your furnace has been blazing for weeks. Have you taken the time to make sure that it is clean and ready to work efficiently? Many homeowners put off professional maintenance for their furnace, but this could actually be costing money in the long run. There are several reasons why cleaning your furnace is so important and it isn’t a job that you should tackle on your own. 

Here are a few of the benefits that you’ll see almost immediately after our professionals clean your furnace:

Clean Furnaces Run More Efficiently

When your furnace is clean, it is able to run more efficiently in every possible way. A clean unit does not have to work as hard as a dirty one. As a result, your furnace may be able to work in shorter cycles while achieving the same result for your home. A more efficient furnace heats your home more quickly and for less money than a dirty one. The amount you save on your monthly heating bill can make up for the money you spend maintaining your furnace! 

Clean Furnaces Last Longer

When the major components of your furnaces are caked with dirt, they must work harder than usual. These parts will get more wear and tear as a result of the extra labour that is required to heat your home. As you might imagine, more wear and tear means that you will have to replace them even sooner. Regular furnace cleaning can keep these pieces in pristine condition and lengthen the amount of time between repairs. It can even add years onto the expected lifespan of your unit. 

Clean Furnaces Are Safer

Perhaps the most important reason to have your furnace cleaned regularly is so that you can be sure your home is safe. Our professional HVAC technicians will be able to identify any potential problems with your unit while they are providing this service. It is particularly important to note whether there is a crack in your heat exchanger. This can be an expensive repair but it is also incredibly dangerous for you to live with a cracked heat exchanger. It can result in fatal carbon monoxide poisoning!

Our professional technicians will also be able to spot potential problems on the horizon. This way, you can begin to budget and plan for their correction instead of being at the mercy of your furnace when it unexpectedly dies in the middle of winter.
