It’s every Buffalo Grove< IL homeowner's worst nightmare: Your furnace dies quietly just as a snowstorm complete with polar vortex is approaching Chicago. Fortunately, you can take steps now to reduce the odds of this unpleasant scenario.

Schedule Heating Maintenance Immediately

A furnace tuneup can reveal any weak links in your heating system. A skilled service technician can quickly spot potential problems while inspecting and servicing the unit. If there are issues, you can make the necessary repairs now. That way, the next big winter storm that descends on Buffalo Grove won’t be the end of your furnace. Heating maintenance will also prepare your system to perform optimally and efficiently regardless of conditions outside.

Check Your Furnace Air Filter

Operating a furnace with a dirty air filter can quickly damage the unit by obstructing air flow. Air filters should be checked every month. If the filter material isn’t visible through the dirt, it’s time for replacement.

Consider a Heater Upgrade

Your furnace may be nearing its end if any of the following statements are true:

  • The furnace is 15-20 years old.
  • Your heater breaks down often.
  • Furnace repairs are getting expensive.
  • You aren’t getting enough heat.
  • Your house has hot and cold spots.
  • Utility bills are increasing.
  • The system has been poorly maintained.
