3 Reasons Why Your Heating System Needs a Tune-Up

Just like your car, your home heating system needs an annual check-up to make sure everything is working properly. For peace of mind and for your family’s safety, you deserve to have a furnace or boiler you can depend on to get you through our cold Minnesota winters. Scheduling a tune-up during the fall or winter season is a great first step for taking care of your heating system and your home. Keep reading for three reasons why you need to schedule a preventative heating system tune-up with Valor Mechanical this fall.

Heating System Tune-Ups Can Help:

  1. Keep your family safe.

Heating systems can be dangerous when they’re not working properly. For example, a furnace or gas boiler with a faulty ventilation system or a cracked heat exchanger can create a toxic carbon monoxide leak in your home. Also, a malfunctioning heating system is at risk of starting a house fire. However, a thorough inspection of your equipment from an HVAC professional can help prevent these harmful events from happening.

  1. Increase efficiency.

Routine inspections can help uncover loose wires, dirty filters, and more – which can prevent small problems from turning into larger, more expensive (and inconvenient!) projects. Also, is your furnace or boiler working at its full capacity? A clean system doesn’t have to work twice as hard, which can help save you money on your energy and heating bills. Depending on your lifestyle, upgrading to a high-efficiency furnace can pay for itself and improve your comfort.

Did you know? Minnesota Energy Resources offers a $35 rebate when a professional HVAC technician provides a heating system tune-up – a carbon monoxide test being one example. Keep in mind that homeowners are eligible for the tune-up rebate every two years and other restrictions apply. Also, Rochester Public Utilities offers rebates for some newly installed efficient Energy Star appliances. Our team at Valor Mechanical will assist you with the heating system rebate process to help you save money!
