Electric Furnaces Need Maintenance, Too!

If you have an electric furnace, you may be thinking that you don’t need to schedule annual maintenance. After all, it’s not a gas appliance that needs to be monitored as closely or wiped down, right? But the truth is, all of your home appliances need maintenance to work their best. This includes your electric furnace.

If you have an electric furnace in Butler, now is a great time to schedule maintenance. It’s the end of the heating season, and your furnace has worked hard for several months now. We’re looking forward to warmer temperatures, and you’ll be turning your furnace off until the next season. Ideally, you want to address any problems now so that you know your furnace is in great shape when you turn it on again.

Peace of Mind

Have you ever heard an unusual sound coming from your electrical furnace and wondered if something is wrong? Or maybe you feel like your furnace is not working quite as well as it used to. These thoughts can go from your mind as quickly as they come, but may still leave doubts and worries behind.

Furnace maintenance is a great way to invest in your peace of mind and know that your electric furnace is in great condition. If there are any small problems, our team can repair them now before they cause bigger problems. Then, when you turn your heater on again in the fall or winter, you can do so with confidence that your furnace will be ready to go. 

Overall Efficiency 

Experts estimate that your furnace loses a little of its efficiency every single year. This means that your energy bills can slowly creep up as your electric furnace has to use more energy to produce the same results. But, maintenance helps you keep some of that efficiency by ensuring that all of the components in your furnace are working as efficiently as they can. 

When your furnace is more efficient, it doesn’t have to work as hard. This reduces overall wear and tear and can even extend your electric furnace’s lifespan. And let’s face it, everyone wants to squeeze as much life out of their furnace as they can since it is such an expensive investment. 

Save on Repairs

When you take care of small electric furnace problems, you avoid larger problems. Aside from peace of mind, you also save money on more expensive repairs that you never have to make. After all, problems start out small and then slowly spread until you cannot ignore them any longer. When you fix a problem early, it costs less than if you put off maintenance and wait for a complete breakdown.
