Why Have Annual Maintenance on a Furnace?
Every year you may receive flyers in the mail or emails offering annual maintenance for your heating and cooling from various companies in the Arlington, Dallas and Fort Worth, TX metropolitan area. What most of these service companies will fail to explain though is why furnace maintenance is critical to have done every year. Below is a list of the reasons why it is important to have an annual tune-up for your furnace.
Airflow – If airflow is restricted or limited somewhere along the lines of the blower and the duct then this can place strain on the system in order for it to be able to heat the home which will eventually increase the amount of repairs needed and shorten the lifespan of the furnace. During furnace maintenance a certified and professional Metro Express Service technician will inspect the furnace to make sure that it is receiving the proper amount of airflow.
Safety – Obviously, fuel-type furnaces burn fuel in order to generate heat and with burning that fuel comes certain dangers. This process of combustion must be precise in order to not only maintain the efficiency of the furnace but for safety also. Even the smallest of a problem could possibly lead to deadly carbon monoxide or gas leaking throughout the home.
Reduce Repairs – With annual maintenance provided to the furnace it will significantly decrease the risks involved with the furnace breaking down and / or a component becoming defective. A furnace tune-up will not only include a thorough cleaning that will assist in the system running efficiently, but it will also help locate small problems before they become massive ones later on down the road.
Time – By applying preventative maintenance to your furnace’s schedule, you are significantly lowering the possibility of a break down happening in the dead of winter, in the middle of the night, and having to pay significantly more in costs, and most of all having to wait in the freezing temperatures for the certified technician to show up at your home.
Efficiency – Preventative maintenance for the furnace will improve the energy efficiency of the system. The certified technician will not only clean the components inside of the furnace, but grease, oil, and inspect the components to make sure everything is in working order. All of this helps make sure that the furnace can operate at its best and when it does that means you save money.
Warranty – If your furnace is still under a manufacturer’s warranty, then it should be especially important that it receives annual preventative maintenance. Most manufacturers stipulate that in order for the warranty to stay valid that the system will need to be regularly maintained. Failure to do so can mean the warranty becomes void. Preventative maintenance will satisfy these requirements and help maintain the warranty for the furnace.

Furnace Safety Tips
Whenever you have a problem with your furnace or even if you suspect that you might have a problem with it then you should not attempt to make the repairs yourself. Whether you have an electric or fuel-typed furnace working around this type of system can be extremely dangerous.
Even if you are looking to save a buck or two by attempting to do the repairs yourself it is ill-advised if you do not have any experience in the field of work and inadvertently cause more damage in the process. You run the risk of possibly doing something that could start an electrical fire later on down the road if you have an electric furnace or if you have a fuel-type furnace you could inadvertently damage the system and it leaks deadly carbon monoxide or gas into the home.
You should always get in touch with an heating and air service company, such as, Metro Express Service to have a professional and certified technician come to your home and inspect the furnace to root out the problem and resolve it for you.
