For months we’ve been thinking it, “winter is coming.”
And if the next ten-day forecast is to be believed, it appears that winter is finally upon us. Thankfully, we don’t have any Wildlings or other Game of Throne creatures to fight. We’ve just got to brace ourselves against the winter doldrums, and a few too many ice damns.
One way to ensure your Medford home is protected now and into the future is to schedule a furnace tune-up.
What is a furnace tune-up? Why would my Medford home need one?
Just as Ned Stark probably never rod into battle without checking that he had his sword, you shouldn’t let your home’s heating system fight against the harsh cold weather without a tune-up first.
When one of Raynor Electric’s heating specialists comes to your home in Medford or the surrounding areas, we’ll inspect your furnace for signs of rust, fire damage, leaks and a number of other problems that can arise during normal use. Your furnace tune-up will include tightening, cleaning, replacing, adjusting and calibrating any parts or components of your home’s furnace that need attention.
A furnace tune-up now, means a whole lot fewer headaches later.
Furnaces use gas or oil, electricity and fire to create heat for your Medford home. All those chemical reactions and controlled burns can create a lot of wear and tear on your furnace’s belts, filters and other moving parts. Oil and gas units have a typical life expectancy of 15 to 20 years.
Yearly furnace tune-ups means problems, like faulty thermocouples or leaky gas lines, can be caught before they cause serious irreparable damage to your furnace or before they become a danger to your family.
Don’t make your furnace work so hard.
Another benefit to regular furnace tune-ups is that your machine won’t have to work so hard. Steady airflow, fresh filters and clean blower components help your furnace run more smoothly. A properly running heating unit uses less energy because it doesn’t have to strain as much to produce heat for you and your family. The more effortlessly your home’s furnace functions the longer it will last without needing to be replaced.
