You might agree with the fact that furnaces often get taken for granted in Los Angeles. As long as they do their job and run OK during the peak winter season, it’s all good. We’re happy campers and the thought of a furnace tune-up or check up never crosses our grey matter. Well, that, my friend, can be a colossal mistake, one that may have you paying through the nose in the weeks or months to follow.

Small issues have a tendency to turn into bigger, pesky ones and at that point, the feeling of dread you experience, is what makes you think: “what if I had done something about this earlier?”

If you think about it, all that’s needed on your part is a little scheduled maintenance preferable in the fall season, when air conditioner use starts to decline. And this is why you need to have your heating system checked and serviced before the start of the cold season.

LA is generally a dry city, which also makes it a very dusty city. The long summers warrant no furnace use whatsoever, and this means dirt and dust that accumulates, due to non-use. For another fact, at the end of the cold season, a hard-pressing concern for us is smooth air conditioning performance while maintaining good air quality, so furnace tune-ups maintenance tends to take a backseat.

Let’s be honest here: if these maintenance drills and check-ups aren’t done at the right time, they won’t make your furnace take a nose dive overnight. However, it will be put under a greater strain, which invariably makes it work harder. What you’re looking at is energy wastage which leads to higher monthly bills. In addition, all the various components functioning inside your unit run a higher risk of complete failure, if you continue running it like this.

A professional is trained to:

  • Clean your heater – cleaning out the dust and performing a little tune-up to spot any signs of wear and tear, tighten loose parts or see if any parts need to be replaced.
  • Diagnose more serious issues that may warrant a furnace repair session.
  • Nip any other issues in the bud that may prevent you from enjoying your furnace performing at its peak during winters.
