Value of Basic Fall Furnace Inspections and Repairs

As one of the hottest Utah summers on record finally begins to cool down and the weather starts to give way a bit, we're entering the fall season that will eventually lead us to winter. This means a few things for homeowners, and one is that it's time to consider basic inspection and repairs for your furnace headed into the cooler part of the year.

At Dick Kearsley Service Center, we're here to provide a wide range of furnace services to clients around Ogden, Roy, Kaysville, Syracuse and nearby areas, helping them maintain quality heating throughout the cooler sections of the calendar. Here are some of the key reasons why you should be ordering a basic inspection of your furnace by professionals this fall, plus having our team attend to any minor repair needs that may have cropped up over the summer.

Checking for Damage Across Inactive Months

In a place like Utah, your furnace typically goes several months without being used, and this can lead to a buildup of dust and other debris that may impact performance. Our team will check for any such issues during our basic inspection.

In many cases, only very small issues will arise here - but if they aren't caught and repaired, these issues can fester and become far more significant over time. Save yourself headache and cost by checking on your furnace during fall.

Preventing Costly Future Repairs

As we just noted, minor issues with your furnace that go unaddressed can quickly snowball into larger ones. And when this happens, you're looking at a far more significant repair bill than you would have had if the issue was caught and addressed during the fall.

In addition, an unchecked furnace that isn't properly maintained may be susceptible to damage that could even require full replacements. Save yourself these costs by performing basic inspections and repairs each year.

Reducing Risk of Emergency Breakdowns

Another key benefit of performing basic inspections and making minor repairs is reducing the risk of emergency furnace breakdowns. If your furnace does break down in the dead of winter, you're not only going to face a costly repair bill - you'll also have to go without heat until the issue is resolved.

By performing basic maintenance during fall, you nip these concerns in the bud and ensure your and your family's comfort all winter long.

Ensuring Longevity

Regular inspections and minor repairs will also help prolong the overall lifespan of your furnace. Furnaces that go without any maintenance are simply not going to last as long as those that receive it; in fact, experts estimate that a properly-maintained furnace can last up to twice as long as one that doesn't receive regular service.

Lowering Energy Costs

Furthermore, a furnace that isn't properly maintained is going to operate less efficiently - and this means you'll be paying more on your energy bills over time. Keep costs low by keeping your furnace in top shape.

For example, a furnace that has dirty filters or damaged parts will have to work harder and use more energy to heat your home. Our team can catch and resolve these issues during our basic inspection, helping keep your system running efficiently all winter long.

Simple Peace of Mind

As we get into the fall and especially into the cold, snowy Utah winter, the last thing you want is to be worrying about your furnace. Take this item off your mind and enjoy simple peace of mind by having our team perform basic inspections and repairs.

If basic service isn't performed now, you could easily find yourself in an emergency during the winter months. Instead, stay ahead of any potential issues and guarantee comfort for you and your family through fall and winter by calling our team today.

Don't wait until it's too late - contact us at Dick Kearsley Service Center today to schedule a basic furnace inspection and any minor repairs that may be necessary. Our experts are here to provide you with quality service and ensure your furnace is ready to handle the colder months ahead. So, don't hesitate - give us a call now, whether you're in Ogden, Roy, Kaysville, Syracuse or any other part of northern Utah.
