6 Reasons To Get Early Maintenance On Your Furnace

Published: September 11, 2020

As much as everyone loves summer, every year it comes to an end. Colder temperatures, shorter days, and falling leaves are right around the corner. Is your furnace ready for the fall and winter?

Here are 6 reasons to get early maintenance on your furnace before the temperature starts to drop.

You will identify problems before they become major issues

By scheduling an early furnace tune-up, you will be able to catch small problems before they turn into larger ones. Your HVAC technician can also identify problems with your furnace before they occur. This gives you time to plan a repair before colder weather hits, and prevent the stress that comes with a sudden, catastrophic failure.

You will pay less for repairs if they are detected early

Smaller repairs cost less than fixing major issues. Replacing a small component before it affects your entire furnace will make your early planning worthwhile, both for peace of mind and for your bank account.

You will have more time to carry out repairs

If your furnace needs a replacement part, you may have to wait a few days or weeks for it to arrive. Knowing early on what you need will give your HVAC technician enough time to order it and get the repair done while the weather is still warm.

Your technician will have increased availability for furnace tune-ups
Most HVAC companies have to book maintenance and repairs in advance. Fall is the time most homeowners will be booking their furnace tune-ups. Get yours done early before the rush, and make sure your furnace will be ready to go before the temperature drops.

You reduce your risk of being without heat during cold weather

If you wait too long, you run the risk of having to shut down your furnace for an emergency repair when you really need the heat. Early maintenance ensures that you can solve any issues while the days are still warm enough to tolerate your furnace being off for repairs.

You will keep your efficiency high from the beginning of the heating season

Tune-ups are critical for keeping the efficiency of your furnace at its highest. That means less fuel consumption and lower utility bills for you! There is no need to run a poorly performing furnace if you can avoid it.

"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
