Top 4 Reasons to Tune-Up Your Furnace This Fall

The cool days of Fall are starting to set in as we move further into October. As homeowners are turning on their furnaces for the first time this season, we would like to encourage all of our customers who are not already enrolled in one of our service plans to strongly consider a furnace tune-up. These routine maintenance appointments offer a variety of benefits for your home, but we wanted to outline our top four below. 
 
1.  You Can Increase Your Unit’s Lifespan
If you are familiar with the famous quote from Benjamin Franklin – “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” than you can already see where this is going. The reality is that one of the most expensive aspects of being a homeowner is having to replace expensive appliances. The average cost of a new furnace today begins at the low end of $2,500. At Aero Energy we ideally like to see our customer’s furnaces last between 15 and 20 years, but a very important factor is regular maintenance and cleanings. 
 
2. You Can Actually Lower Your Monthly Heating Bill
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, they are estimating that heating costs will increase by 14% for propane households and should decrease by 10% for heating oil households compared to last year (EIA, 2020). Regardless of the type of fuel you use, everyone can agree that the lowest possible heating bill this season would be ideal. An effective method for lowering your heating costs is to have an annual furnace tune-up. By ensuring your unit is operating as efficiently as possible it will consume less fuel and won’t have to work as hard to heat your home. 


 
3. Your Indoor Air Quality Will Improve
Often forgotten when considering the prospect of a furnace tune-up is the improvements you should expect in your indoor air quality. This impact might be especially noticeable if it has been multiple seasons since you last serviced your unit. Not only do our tune-ups include a filter change but our technicians will also clean the inside of a furnace of all types of debris that may have accumulated over time. If you’re interested in learning more about what you can do to enhance your indoor air quality we invite you to visit our Aprilaire page.
 
4. Maintenance is More Cost Effective Than Repair
By having routine maintenance conducted on your furnace our 5-star technicians can catch problems before they occur. You can certainly schedule a stand-alone appointment with us but we always encourage our customers to consider our Aero Home Service Plans which start at just $19.99/month. These plans will secure you an annual tune-up as well as a variety of other perks. Not only is routine maintenance going to be more affordable, but it will also be much easier to get scheduled as opposed to an emergency service. 
 
There is no way of knowing exactly what the weather is going to do this fall and winter, but you can’t go wrong with a furnace tune-up in preparation. With the holidays just a couple months away you will be able to rest easy knowing your tune up has increased your unit’s lifespan, your heating bill should be lower and that your indoor air quality has improved. Give us a call today at 1-800-998-4311 to schedule your service appointment!
