Why Is Maintenance of Your Home’s Heating and Air Conditioning Systems So Important?
- Safety – detect deadly carbon monoxide in gas furnaces
- Prevent costly and inconvenient breakdowns before they occur
- Routine air conditioner and furnace maintenance keeps your systems operating at the highest possible efficiency ratings
- Maintains valuable warranties and guarantees on your heating and air conditioning systems
- In the Indiana and Michigan area, we have seven months in the heating season: October through April. That works out to 210 heating days and 5040 heating hours. Each hour your furnace runs, it turns on and off an average of four times, so over the heating season, your furnace cycles on and off 20,160 times. If your furnace is 10 years old, it has cycled on an off 201,600 times. Just like mileage on your car, you need regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly.
