With winter right around the corner in Lindsay, CA, it’s time to start thinking about turning on your furnace, despite the warm daytime temperatures. Before you start using your furnace, you should think about scheduling a fall furnace maintenance appointment. Below are five benefits that HVAC maintenance provides.

Extends Furnace Lifespan

Did you know that, with routine maintenance, your furnace can operate efficiently for up to 20 years? Annual maintenance may save you thousands of dollars by extending the lifespan of the furnace; without regular attention, you might need to replace your furnace around the 10-year mark, if not sooner.

Fewer Needs for Repairs

Not only does annual maintenance keep your furnace running for a long time, but your furnace won’t need as many repairs. With regular maintenance comes regular inspection, where our certified HVAC technicians can catch minor problems before they become big issues. Minor issues can snowball into bigger problems, so by fixing them early, you prevent the possibility of your furnace breaking down when you need it most.

Improves Indoor Air Quality

Regular HVAC maintenance also improves the indoor air quality of your home. Your HVAC technician will inspect your air filter and your system to ensure your system is clean and working properly, all of which contribute to better air quality.

Keeps Warranty Valid

With a good-quality furnace, you can typically get a warranty that lasts 10 years. However, if you have to send in your furnace due to a manufacturer’s issue, they will ask for proof that you’ve had an HVAC professional routinely take care of the unit.

Reduces Energy Bills

When you have your furnace maintained regularly, it’ll run more efficiently. This is because the technician measures the airflow and inspects and adjusts connections and parts. When your furnace runs more efficiently, it reduces energy usage and therefore reduces your energy bills.
