Annual Clean & Service
You wouldn’t hesitate to clean spilt milk, would you? So why do you hesitate to clean and service the hardest working appliance in your home? Your furnace or boiler keeps your home warm and cozy all winter long, sometimes starting as early as September and often running to the beginning of May. I’ve even been known to turn the heat on in July if it’s been cold and wet just to take the chill out of the house.
Why clean your furnace/boiler? Most furnaces are in a basement, crawl space or utility room. These areas aren’t places that you normally keep dust and dirt free. The average furnace is a magnet for dirt and dust.
Think about changing the oil in your car. You change the filter and oil in the car every 3,000 – 5,000 miles. You get a tune-up, rotate the tires, take it to the car wash, maybe even get the inside detailed. Your furnace has been running for months. Faithfully providing you with heat and perhaps hot water. To keep running at its peak efficiency, it needs yearly maintenance.
A central furnace/boiler’s efficiency is measured by annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). AFUE is a measure of how efficient the appliance is converting the energy in its fuel to heat over the course of a normal year. The older the furnace, typically, the lower the AFUE. You want your furnace/boiler to run at its peak efficiency. When your heating system isn’t maintained properly, you can expect its efficiency to decrease.
Keeping your system properly tuned will save you money on fuel usage and extends its life while ensuring dependability next season. Contact us today at 800-874-1975 or complete the form below.
