Don’t Ignore your furnace until it breaks!
Why furnace maintenance is important! Proper annual maintenance of your gas furnace can prevent breakdowns, improve efficiency, and insure that your furnace is operating safely. Scheduling an annual preventative furnace maintenance inspection can also reduce the likelihood of costly breakdowns and repairs.
Taking good care of your furnace is not only good for your pocketbook, it’s good for your health as well. One of the primary concerns when performing a furnace maintenance check on your gas furnace is inspecting the condition of the furnace heat exchanger. A crack or hole in the furnace heat exchanger can allow combustion products such as carbon monoxide to enter your home. Carbon monoxide can cause drowsiness, headaches, and in some cases death. I highly recommend that you have carbon monoxide detectors in your home.
