How Much Does Furnace Maintenance Cost?
Consider this: the price of a furnace tune-up is like the price of a root canal. For example, a licensed Dentist who’s experienced, insured, has great reviews, and uses the proper instruments, will likely charge more than say…Tido from Tido’s Teeth Cleaning, who operates out of his garage and advertises “all sales final.” Taking that analogy into consideration, professional furnace maintenance services from a reputable HVAC company in the Milwaukee area are typically in the range of $150-$250.
With a furnace maintenance contract, the cost of furnace maintenance as well as air conditioning maintenance services can be considerably lower. While there are additional benefits to a maintenance contract, the cost savings on a tune up alone make it worth while.
Top 5 Benefits of Furnace Maintenance
The reasons are endless: extend the life of your heating system, avoid expensive repairs, and increase the energy efficiency of your system, resulting in lower energy bills. In short: a small expenditure right now can save you four figures or more in the future.
1. Furnace Cleaning Lower Heating Bills
A dirty furnace works harder than it has to, to heat your home – which in turn costs more to operate by using more energy. Most Milwaukee area homeowners already cringe when the heating bills come, but add a dirty furnace to the mix and you’re just throwing money away. Our furnace maintenance technicians follow the globally recognized ACCA furnace maintenance standards to ensure a thorough inspection and cleaning of the air filter, blower motor, and other parts that can slow your HVAC system down.
2. Furnace Maintenance Means Fewer Repair Bills
So many furnace repairs could be avoided by scheduling a preseason maintenance visit. With an annual furnace tune up, our technicians cover an extensive furnace maintenance checklist to proactively catch issues and fix parts of your heating system that are close to failure, before it requires an emergency service call.
3. Your Furnace Will Last Longer
Preventative furnace maintenance will extend the lifespan of your heating equipment, compared to a system that solely relies on reactive repairs. A furnace like any other mechanical system requires scheduled cleanings and adjustments; without proper maintenance, the parts of a furnace can overheat, wear out, snap, or crack – leading to premature furnace failure.
4. Furnace Warranty Won’t Be Voided
HVAC manufacturers require annual maintenance by a professional to keep your equipment warranty valid. Failure to comply with an annual furnace tune-up could result in HVAC warranty coverage being denied by your furnace manufacturer.
5. A Clean Furnace Means Cleaner Indoor Air
When contaminants like dust and debris are removed from your furnace, they’re no longer being blown through your duct work and into the air you breathe.
