Short answer: Yes!
Longer, but more informative answer:
No one wants to deal with unexpected heating repairs ever, let alone midway through a Jersey winter when the outdoor temperatures are hovering at or below freezing. However, most of these breakdowns can be easily avoided by getting your furnace checked out & tuned up before the winter is here.
It’s basically a question of risk and reward. If you look at the risks of not having your furnace inspected and tuned by a professional, versus the rewards of acting now … you’ll want to act now. What are some of those risks?
Paying emergency repair rates in mid-winter for a sudden furnace breakdown
Exposing you and your family to carbon monoxide in the home from a leaky furnace
Having to replace your furnace earlier than normal due to insufficient maintenance
Paying more on your monthly utility bill because your furnace is running inefficiently
In light of the risk factors, the benefits of a professional furnace tune-up are obvious: extended furnace life, controlled costs and increased safety.
Ok, but how do I know I’m getting the right level of service?
Before scheduling an appointment for a furnace tune-up, ask for details on what the company includes in the service. Tune-up packages vary widely here in the Princeton, NJ area. For example, here’s just some of what we at Princeton Air include in our pre-season tune-ups:
Clean and adjust all safety devices
Check & adjust the thermostat for proper calibration
Inspect pilot flame or ignition system, clean and adjust as required
Inspect burners and adjust as required
Inspect blower motor and lubricate as required
Check flue, draft device
Check blower and blower compartment for cleanliness
Check complete furnace cycle, including fan control
Inspect system for carbon monoxide leaks and proper venting of flue gases
Check and tighten all electrical connections
Lubricate all bearings & inspect for wear as needed
If you can’t recall when the last time your furnace was inspected, it’s been too long, and you need a tune-up.
Like any large piece of machinery, your furnace requires periodic maintenance to continue running at its optimal efficiency. Princeton Air’s furnace experts offer a full inspection & evaluation for your furnace to ensure that you won’t run into problems later this winter.
The risks of not acting can be costly, to your comfort, the health & safety of your family and your wallet. Enjoy the rewards of a furnace tune-up from Princeton Air by calling now to schedule an appointment!
