There are few things as important as the physical comfort of you and your family, This winter, take care of the furnace in your Augusta, Georgia, home by keeping up with regular maintenance. Doing so can reduce the need for costly repairs and keep your home safe and comfortable throughout the changing seasons.

Better Indoor Air Quality

Without regular furnace maintenance, the quality of the air you breathe will suffer. Your heating system probably uses ductwork to move air throughout the space. When these ducts are coated with dirt and dust, you may experience allergic symptoms like headaches, congestion, eye irritation, and sore throats. Regular duct cleaning should be part of your maintenance program in order to keep the ducts free of these contaminants.

During a furnace tuneup and inspection, your technician will also look for any areas of concern. Since your heating system uses some type of fuel to warm up the air, it’s important to make sure that you don’t have any leaks, since these could be dangerous and worsen the quality of the air you breathe.

Fewer Repairs

Another benefit of regular furnace maintenance is a reduced need for costly repairs. When your heating system is operating inefficiently or running with a damaged component, it could make the problem even worse resulting in an expensive repair.

By keeping an eye on your furnace every year, your HVAC technician can watch for any warning signs and perform minor repairs as needed, instead of allowing the issues to get worse. Furnace maintenance also extends the lifespan of your equipment.
