The Importance Of Regular Furnace Maintenance

When you live in the Midwestern US you can expect to call upon the furnace in your home for as much as six months out of the year. Rarely would a homeowner give much thought to how a furnace in Carol Stream works, their only concern it that is does work. To ensure that is does work on chilly days and bitter cold nights you must not neglect regular maintenance.

Why is regular maintenance necessary?

Every car owner is well aware of the importance of changing the oil and having it serviced regularly. It is equally important to make sure that your furnace is working properly; a gas furnace in particular can be deadly if not properly maintained.

Carbon Monoxide is a byproduct of incomplete combustion. CO is colorless, odorless, tasteless and deadly. Even the most efficient gas furnace will produce CO, as long as it is properly vented to the outside it is not a problem, however, dirty furnaces which have not been cleaned or maintained properly can produce a greater amount of this deadly gas. Maintenance of a gas furnace in Carol Stream will ensure that there are no cracks in the combustion chamber; that the ventilation is correct and there are no malfunctioning components.

Excessively high energy charges:

To operate efficiently a furnace in Carol Stream must be well maintained. Having a tune up in the late summer helps to identify any problems or faulty parts that, if not repaired or replaced, will lead to higher than necessary energy bills.

Extend the lifespan:

If you are forced to replace your furnace it can be a very expensive proposition. By keeping your furnace in good running order you will extend the life span of it. If your furnace is allowed to run with faulty components for any period of time it can have a detrimental effect on its longevity.

To ensure that a furnace in Carol Stream performs as it should it requires regular, routine maintenance. To arrange maintenance or service you are invited to contact Blue Frost Heating & Cooling.
