About a week ago, a homeowner requested a 30pt Premium Precision Furnace Cleaning and Safety Inspection on their 3 year old Amana furnace. The technician arrived, checked all electrical connections and components, replaced the air filter (using one that the customer had purchased), and checked all features. We also checked carbon monoxide levels, gas pressure, and unit range, and found the entire furnace to be operational. A job well done by our HVAC techs — and a very important job at that! Now is the time of year to have furnace maintenance performed on your home, so call today!

If you have an issue with your furnace, all of your winter relaxation comes to an abrupt end. Worse, your family’s health may be put at risk. Insufficient heating, uneven warmth between rooms, or even total furnace failure can really make you and your family miserable…and having a faulty furnace can even be dangerous! That’s because old furnaces tend to be serious carbon monoxide risks — contaminated or incomplete combustion creates poisonous gas byproducts like CO, which cannot be seen or smelled. That’s why it’s so critical to make sure that you’re getting the professional furnace maintenance that your home needs to be safe!

Is your furnace past its warranty? Have you been using the same heating system for your home since before you can remember? Furnaces have a life expectancy of about 10 to 15 years. If you are past or nearing that deadline, it’s time to call in a professional to tell you if your Lake in the Hills home needs furnace maintenance or even furnace replacement.

The Benefits of Furnace Maintenance

When you request furnace maintenance from the experts at Approved Comfort, you get:

  1. Energy/Money Savings– Old furnaces, like most old appliances, tend to lose efficiency over time. As a furnace collects dust, rust, and other contaminants, it doesn’t burn fuel as cleaning. This means you could be paying more for the same amount of heat month over month. If you start to notice that your heating bills are going up even though temperatures are staying the same, furnace maintenance can help you lower those costs!
  2. Peace of Mind– Most furnace manufacturers recommend that you get furnace maintenance at least once a year. This is because a lot can happen to a furnace over the course of the winter, and the best way to make sure that your furnace is operating properly and safely is to have a professional come in and perform a tune-up inspection.
  3. Better Heat– Of course, when you call Approved Comfort for a comprehensive inspection of your furnace and have all of your heating and safety issues sorted out, the main benefit you can count on is that your home’s heating system will perform better all winter long.

So don’t wait until you experience furnace failure to have a professional inspect your old furnace — call the professionals at Approved Comfort for furnace maintenance today!
