While temperatures aren’t typically super cold during winter months in Contra Costa County, there are times it can get downright cold, and heating your home suddenly becomes very important! Is your furnace or heater in good working order? Just like any other equipment, regular maintenance and repair are essential to ensure your comfort and efficient operation. Keeping your family safe is also important, so we have a few suggestions for homeowners in the Bay Area.
Don’t delay repairs
Even if you never have preventive maintenance services (which is highly recommended), it’s important to call for service when your furnace or heater is malfunctioning or not performing as it should. A problem that could be minor right now could quickly grow into one that’s expensive and serious. Depending on the issue, it could potentially even put your home or family in danger.
Why preventive maintenance is important
No one wants their furnace to completely break down during colder winter months, which could easily happen if you don’t have repairs done or choose not to sign up for a preventive maintenance contract. When one component malfunctions, it can result in other parts not functioning as they should. Your system will have to work harder, which will result in higher costs. Additionally, your comfort may suffer or your family may be placed in a dangerous situation, such as high levels of carbon monoxide in the home that you aren’t aware of.
Another advantage of having timely repairs made, or a preventive maintenance contract in place, is that it will extend the life of your furnace or heating system. Comfort, increased efficiency, money savings, protecting the safety of your home and family – what could be more important?
