Contemporary furnaces have a lot more parts than those manufactured only a decade ago, thus they are more prone to breakdowns if not properly maintained. That’s why it’s essential to get regular heating tune-ups service from C.P.R. A/C & Heat.
What Causes a Furnace to Stop Working
Something as simple as dirty parts can cause your furnace to shut down frequently or not even operate at all. To avoid waking up on a cold winter morning with no heat in your home, schedule annual preventive maintenance for your furnace or heat pump. By having your heater cleaned and checked annually, it will run more more efficiently. Not only that, preventive maintenance helps detect cracks and other problems that could release carbon monoxide into your home, endangering the lives of you and your family. Regular inspections also head off expensive repairs that dirty systems sometimes cause.
