Time to have your Furnace Repair in Boone Performed Before the Cold Sets In

Now is the time to have your furnace repair in Boone completed before the cold weather sets in this year so you can stay warm and toasty all winter long.

All too often home owners forget to have their heaters and furnaces checked before the cold weather sets in. As luck would have it, the coldest night of the year is the same night their furnace dies. This scenario can be prevented by having your heating repair completed, if needed, or prevented by performing an annual maintenance check now.

Most home owners fail to recognize all the different heater and furnace components that need to be serviced or checked on a yearly basis. In fact, most warranties for the most popular furnaces include a statement that voids the warranty caused by improper maintenance. Having your heater or furnace checked on a regular basis really is important. It is sort of like changing the oil in your car, a simple thing – yet, extremely important as the oil lubricates all the major parts of the motor. After a certain amount of miles the oil breaks down, the parts are lubricated inefficiently and this causes other engine components to go bad quicker.

Safety Concerns that Warrant Furnace Repair

Furnaces typically use either gas, oil or other fuels to produce heat. The burning of these substances produce carbon monoxide.  While your plants may love it (they actually filter the carbon monoxide out of the air), it is deadly to humans.  Typically, the amount of carbon monoxide emitted from your heater is small and is carried out of your home through the ventilation system.  However, if there are cracks in the ventilation system, or the furnace is dirty, carbon monoxide can increase and leak into your home.  Additionally, today’s homes are super-insulated, which is great for keeping the cold weather out and the heat in. However, the downside is that an airtight environment creates an ideal environment for buildup of carbon monoxide. Having your furnace checked annually and any repair performed promptly protects you and your family from dangers of this silent and harmful gas.

Furnace Repair & Tune-ups and Why They Are Important

Although generating heat is complex, in simple terms, warm air is generated by burning some type of substance (wood, oil or gas). In order to operate efficiently, the proper mixture of all these ingredients (air, fuel, oil, or gas) must be monitored. When a technician comes out to check your furnace, this mixture is checked to ensure that the burn is efficient plus he checks the burners to ensure proper ignition and burner flame. Additionally, the technician checks to make sure there are no leak or blockage in the ventilation system and to make sure that the wiring is not corroded or damaged.

By simply performing an annual check-up, you can minimize your heating repair costs and protect your and your family from the harmful effects of a leaky ventilation system.
