The changing color of leaves on the trees is a sure indication that cold weather is on its way. Will your furnace be ready when it’s time to turn up the heat? To ensure that your family stays safe and warm, schedule maintenance now from Assurance Heating & Air Conditioning. Autumn is the ideal time to get a heating tune-up before Old Man Winter comes knocking at your door.
In cold-weather climates like Cook and Lake counties, fuel-burning furnaces are the most popular types of heaters. They’re durable, reliable and efficient, and they offer the kind of whole-home comfort you want for your family. Without proper maintenance, however, they can pose serious safety and health risks:
- Fuel-fired heaters are designed to pump dangerous byproducts safely out of your home. Worn parts, blocked chimneys or leaking flues can allow deadly carbon monoxide to backdraft into your living spaces.
- Improperly operating fuel connections, dirty burners or cracked heat exchangers are fire hazards. The inspections, cleanings and tests conducted during maintenance help safeguard your family and property.
- Heaters run for longer periods during bone-chilling weather, which can cause extra wear and tear on critical components. Professional checkups help ensure your heater works well when you most need it.
A well-tuned heater operates more efficiently, saving you money on monthly energy bills. Maintenance also protects your wallet from the cost of unexpected repairs. In addition, regular care extends the system’s service life, so you reap the full rewards of your investment. At Assurance Heating & Air Conditioning our maintenance plans also include extras like automatic reminders and priority service.
