You Need an Annual Furnace Tuneup!

We all try to do our due diligence in the Fall (or if you wait too long, during the winter after your furnace malfunctions). Other than knowing it should be done, do you know the whys maintenance is essential? Primarily, efficiency and safety, but there’s more.  Keep in mind, this isn’t just about safety; it’s also about preventative maintenance. It’s about sometimes catching a problem before your furnace quits working in the middle of the night.

Is this a DIY project, or do you need for a professional to do it?  In short, it’s best to pay a professional, says Reuben Saltzman of StructureTech.   However, take note, when you have to hire a heating contractor to show up on a Sunday evening because the furnace stopped working, you’re probably going to end up paying emergency rates.
