Is Getting a Furnace Tuneup Worth It?
At California Energy Services, we get a lot of questions about whether or not getting our customers should be performing annual furnace tuneups. After all, many El Dorado Hills residents believe that our mild climate doesn’t necessitate paying much attention to our heating systems, but this is far from the truth. The Sacramento area may enjoy a warmer climate than much of the rest of the country, but that doesn’t mean our heating systems don’t need to be prepared for the winter weather that lay head.
So, the short answer to this all-too-common question is, yes — getting a tuneup is worth it. Why? Here are just a few reasons why:
- A Safer Home, Free of Carbon Monoxide and Other Contaminants
- No Concerns over Emergency Winter Repairs
- Longer Lifespan for Your HVAC System
- Reduced Energy Bills
Many people who have installed a new, high-performance HVAC system in the last few years understandably feel as if their heating and cooling equipment is invincible, but this is never the case. Even the best heating and cooling systems require regular maintenance in order to perform at peak functionality, and ignoring maintenance altogether can lead to a tremendous number of problems. Fortunately, the team at California Energy Services is here to help ensure that your warm stays warm and comfortable this winter, all while saving you money and energy in the meantime.
