San Diego Furnaces: Does My Heater Need a Winter Tune-Up?

Furnace Maintenance in San Diego is Important

Water Heater Tune UpWe can't stress enough the importance of a heater tune-up or addressing heating repairs before the air starts to get chilly. San Diego homeowners typically only use their furnaces in the 2 or 3 cold winter months and tend to ignore them throughout the rest of the year. However, the summer and fall months are the best time to tune up your San Diego furnace because it inevitably needs some sort of maintenance after a long spell of constant use and then dormancy. We like to use an automobile analogy a lot. After a long road trip, your car would likely be much closer to needing a tune up or at least an oil change. Likewise, if you left your car sitting for months, it would need maintenance to perform at its best or to avoid costly repairs before hitting the road again.

Neglecting Your Furnace Can Be Dangerous

There are many dangers to running your furnace without regular maintenance. If you use a damaged or broken furnace to heat your home, there is a high likelihood that it could explode or catch fire. No joking. Regardless of guarantees that are sold along with heating system, the life of the system really depends on the frequency of use (how often and how long) and how well you maintain the heating system. Certain parts of a furnace like a thermostat, piping, gauges, and valves will eventually wear out, just like any other appliance. Beyond the serious dangers of neglecting furnace maintenance, like a fire, your furnace can become downright annoying. Failure to maintain your heating system will result in loud noises and can cause your furnace to blow cold air. If you do notice these things, call a San Diego furnace repair service as soon as possible.
