Don’t wait until the weather turns frigid to realize your furnace needed a check-up months ago. Annual service and maintenance is the key to reliable furnace performance. The expert heating technicians at Neighborhood Heating and Air Conditioning know every make and model of furnace, and have been providing furnace maintenance services to the Central Minnesota region since 1947. With Neighborhood, you will have the confidence of knowing your furnace is in top working order when that first deep freeze arrives.
Furnace Maintenance Benefits
Energy efficiency – A dirty furnace has to work harder, thus leading to higher energy bills. In order to produce the same amount of heat it would if it were clean, it will have to run longer.
Safety – If your furnace is not properly maintained, many serious problems can result. If soot is allowed to accumulate, it can spread through your home’s vents and lead to respiratory problems. And of course, faulty wiring in an electric unit can result in a fire.
Repair expenses – Failing to have maintenance performed regularly can lead to minor problems becoming serious, leading to costly repairs. It makes more sense to spend a little money now to address small problems rather than spend a lot more to fix major problems later.
