Why Wait to Schedule Your Furnace Maintenance?

After the summer we have had here in Western Idaho, your furnace is probably the last thing on your mind.

You may not be ready to fire up the heat in your Eagle home, but it is the perfect time to give your furnace some thought—and a little pre-winter prep. 

The 100-degree temperatures we endured in July and August are gone, and The Old Farmer’s Almanac calls for below-average fall temperatures in the Pacific Northwest. Before you know it, the “oohs” and “aahs” of our colorful autumn will give way to the “brr” of early winter.

You want to be ready for plunging temperatures, and even more, you want to prepare your furnace.

Western Heating & Air Conditioning can help you transition from one season to the next by ensuring your furnace will create a cozy, warm, and safe environment in your Eagle home this fall.

Our family-owned business has helped homeowners with their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) needs since 1967. We are big believers in preventative maintenance and suggest you schedule a furnace tune-up well before you begin running your system day in and day out.

Identify Potential Furnace Problems Now

Preventative maintenance can stop a potential problem in its tracks before it worsens. A worn bolt or dirty burner may be easy to fix today but could lead to a total system breakdown tomorrow. One ignored and broken component may cause other parts to malfunction.

Running your furnace might aggravate a minor issue. You may be unaware that a problem exists until it grows much bigger and more costly.

Spare yourself the headache and cost of a minor problem that spirals out of control. Schedule preventative maintenance sooner rather than later.

Schedule Maintenance in Fall Weather

During a maintenance visit, we turn off your furnace when cleaning parts, such as your blower motor and burners. We also check furnace performance and safety. If your furnace needs repair or replacement parts, we can fix it during our maintenance visit. However, we likely will shut your furnace off while we complete the work.

You will feel more comfortable turning the furnace off during a tune-up or for repairs on a mild autumn day in September than in below-freezing temperatures in December.

Start the Heating Season Safely

You could risk your health and safety by delaying furnace maintenance until after the heating season starts.

You would not drive your car a long distance if you were unsure about the condition of its brakes, engine, and transmission. You would ask a mechanic to inspect and repair your vehicle before getting behind the wheel.

Think about your gas furnace the same way. Before putting it into service for cold weather, ask our professionals to inspect it and repair any safety and performance issues. Your furnace will work daily for several months over the winter. You do not want to run it with a carbon monoxide (CO) leak or a natural gas or propane leak.

Our Western Heating & Air Conditioning pros can correct any unsafe issues, such as an obstructed flue pipe or cracked heat exchanger, that might lead to a dangerous leak. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), carbon monoxide can kill you before you know it is in your home. A high concentration can cause flu-like symptoms, confusion, and impaired vision and coordination.
