While Charleston winters might not rival the harsh conditions of our northern neighbors, having a furnace in good repair is still an essential part of having a comfortable home. Here’s what you need to know to keep your furnace in top shape.

When to Schedule a Furnace Cleaning

You should have a complete furnace inspection and cleaning at least once every year. The best time to schedule this service is before the colder weather arrives. However, a late cleaning is better than no cleaning at all, so don’t hesitate to give us a call at any time to schedule your servicing.

The Benefits of Furnace Cleaning

The biggest reason to make sure your furnace is cleaned and inspected annually is to prevent furnace failure. Of course, furnace failures always seem to happen at the worst times: in the middle of the night, on a Monday morning when you’re late for work, or during your big Super Bowl party when you have a ton of guests. Let an expert make sure your furnace is ready for winter, and you’ll be much less likely to be left in the lurch.

Furnace Cleanings Save Money

If an annual cleaning and inspection seems like just another expense to add to your budget, you might be surprised to learn that a clean furnace is an efficient furnace–and an efficient furnace means lower heating bills. Plus, a well-operating furnace is less likely to require expensive emergency visits and costly repairs.
