Baton Rouge Furnace Maintenance
We see it all the time: a homeowner puts off heater maintenance because they think their furnace will run just fine come winter — after all, it only gets used for a few months out of the year, right? Then their heating system breaks down during the first cold snap of the season! While Louisiana and the Baton Rouge area see mild winters, getting stuck without a furnace can still leave you shivering and uncomfortable in your home. However, with furnace maintenance from Southern Air Heating and Cooling, you can avoid inconvenient breakdowns and ensure that your heating system runs smoothly all winter long.
Taking care of your heating system is as easy as scheduling heater tune-up services. Call on Southern Air for more information or to schedule your next heater tune-up in Baton Rouge today!
What is Heater Maintenance, Anyways?
Contrary to popular belief, heating tune-ups aren’t just a chance for HVAC companies to give your system a once over and a thumbs up. A tune-up is actually an in-depth inspection and cleaning of your heater’s condition that will give the system a performance boost if done correctly. Think of a furnace tune-up like an oil check for your car. You probably wouldn’t set out on a road trip without making sure there’s enough oil in your engine or getting an oil change if needed, so why should you head into the cold season with a heating system that’s not ready?
When to Schedule Regular Heating Tune-Ups
As the name implies, a tune-up isn’t just a one-time service. It would be best if you had two seasonal tune-ups done on your HVAC system each year: one for your furnace and one for your AC. While a tune-up at any time of the year is better than no tune-up at all, heating tune-ups should ideally be scheduled in the fall before the weather gets cold. Likewise, air conditioning tune-ups should be scheduled in the spring before the heat of summer hits.
Scheduling your heating tune-up before winter gives a professional HVAC technician a chance to inspect and clean the entire system as well as notify you of any repairs before a cold front comes in and causes issues. If your heater heads into winter with a performance boost and no issues, it can take on anything the winter season throws at it.
Benefits of Regular Furnace Maintenance
Some homeowners wonder whether furnace tune-ups come with any real benefits, and the answer is always an enthusiastic yes! While individual tune-ups boost efficiency for the upcoming cold season, regular furnace maintenance over time also offers multiple long-term advantages that you won’t want to miss out on. Benefits of scheduling regular furnace tune-ups each year include:
- Increased system efficiency
- Lower energy bills
- Reduced the risk of breakdowns
- Catching unnoticed issues
- Extending the life of the system
You heard correctly! Keeping a regular maintenance schedule throughout your heating system’s life can keep it running better for longer. A furnace typically lasts 15-30 years depending on whether it uses electricity or gas, but regular tune-ups can ensure that the system lasts years longer than it would without maintenance. Between maintaining high efficiency, catching repairs early and preventing the permanent wear and tear often left by breakdowns, regular heater maintenance offers the perfect formula for a long-lasting heating system.
