When Was the Last Time You Had a Furnace Inspection?
Do you know what type of furnace you have? Most furnaces are electric, gas, or induction. What they all have in common is that they require a little TLC now and then to keep them operating efficiently. If you cannot remember when you last had your furnace inspected, or if you are having issues with your furnace, we recommend scheduling an inspection and seasonal maintenance with us.
The Benefits of Furnace Maintenance Include:
- Repairs are caught while they are still small
- Full-system breakdowns can be averted
- You can extend the life of your existing furnace
- Improved efficiency and reduced energy costs
- Improved air quality in your home
It is recommended that before the cold weather sets in, you have your furnace inspected to be sure it is ready for the upcoming season. Our St. Peters furnace maintenance experts can help you establish a maintenance routine today.
