To ensure that your car runs efficiently, you change the oil, check the tire pressure, and get regular inspections. You do these things because preventive maintenance can save you thousands of dollars overall.
Similarly, preventive maintenance on your heating system allows you to catch any issues with your furnace long before they become a costly problem.
The truth is, just like any type of equipment or machinery, your furnace experiences wear and tear every time you use it. To avoid frequent repair bills, high energy bills, and sub-par heater performance, the experts at Ragsdale Heating, Air, & Plumbing recommend you schedule a tune-up on your furnace once a year.
Heat pumps provide an economical way to heat and cool your home by moving (or pumping) heat from one place to another. In the winter, the pump extracts heat from outdoors and pumps it into your house. In the warmer months, the pump removes hot air from your home to create a cool environment indoors.
In some cases, repairing your heating system will allow you to get more use out of the same unit.
However, if you notice your heater or furnace is constantly needing repair, your utility bills have increased over time, and it’s become impossible to maintain a comfortable warm temperature throughout your home, it’s probably time to talk with a Ragsdale expert about replacing your heater with a new cost-effective and efficient heating system.
