“Truth is,” says Brian Jackson at Jackson Air and Heat in Sugar Land, “there is probably not a soul in Fort Bend County that runs the furnace continuously through the winter. Our winters are just not harsh, and we may assume a furnace that is not run all that much doesn’t need maintenance. That assumption is more than wrong…it’s dangerous!”
Your heating (and cooling) system is a mechanical system with moving parts and pieces that need to be cleaned, inspected and adjusted…much like your car. You wouldn’t drive your car for years on end without an oil change…so why would you run an unchecked furnace? Brian says, “What’s the bottom line? Furnaces burn fuel to produce heat. This combustion process must be precise to maintain efficiency and safety…and even a small problem can lead to gas leaking into your home or dangerous carbon monoxide levels. It’s just not worth the risk to you and your family to not have it checked!”
Safety aside, it’s not coincidence that unchecked systems seem to breakdown at the most inconvenient times. Brian says, “Systems tend to break when they are working the hardest. Maybe it’s a major holiday when guests are coming in and out. When the door keeps opening, your furnace works harder to maintain the indoor temperature. Often breakdowns could have been prevented with a preseason furnace clean and tune up. Not only is it inconvenient when your system fails, but holiday repairs also cost much more than preventive maintenance. You don’t want to wait until the week before Thanksgiving to get your system checked. October is the best time to make sure your family will be safe when you need to switch from A/C to heat.”
