Benefits of a Furnace Tune Up in Reading, PA

undefinedWell, we just turned the clocks back… and that means the time you have to tune up your furnace before winter is ticking away! Don’t wait until it’s too late—call the heating experts at Essig for a full furnace inspection and tune up that will ensure that your home’s heating system is operating at winter-ready performance and efficiency.

Make no mistake—the cost of neglecting furnace maintenance can be high, not only financially, but also in convenience and safety. Every winter, around 75% of our emergency calls can be attributed to inadequate maintenance. A neglected furnace can and will break down on some frigid winter night when you most need it. If your furnace isn’t getting proper care, it will lead to higher utility bills. And in a worst case scenario, an unmaintained furnace could begin to emit undetectable carbon monoxide into your home which, when inhaled, can be fatal.

When you bring in the heating experts with Essig for a furnace tune up, here’s what we’ll do for you:

  • Inspect all electrical connections and test voltage levels to ensure system components are ready to run long term.
  • Lubricate moving components. Inadequate lubrication can decrease overall efficiency and create early wear and tear.
  • Ensure the condensation drain for your home’s furnace isn’t clogged. A clogged drain can cause water damage, high humidity and mold or bacteria growth.
  • Check, clean or replace the air filter.
  • Examine integrity of exhaust outlets. Improper exhaust function may cause dangerous levels of carbon monoxide or other harmful fumes. During our annual maintenance tune up, the chimney flue or vent stack should be checked to ensure there’s no corrosion, cracks or blockage.
  • Inspect fuel lines, burners and heat exchangers. Faulty fuel lines are a safety risk and contribute to lower system efficiency. Burners with accumulations of soot and cracked heat exchangers will also deteriorate your heating system’s efficiency.

Stay warm, comfortable and safe in your home all winter long by calling Essig to schedule a professional furnace tune up today!
