Why Timely Furnace Repair Is Critical

furnace-burnersNow that it’s the middle of October, you’ve probably got cooler weather and winter planning on your mind. Have you arranged for maintenance for your gas furnace yet? If not, there’s no time like the present to sign up for our Comfort Plan so you can have your furnace tuned-up and inspected. Then it will be ready to tackle any cold weather!

But no matter how well you care for your furnace, it may still malfunction. If you detect something wrong with your furnace, but it’s still able to work, don’t ignore the problem. Call for repairs. There are some good reasons why prompt furnace repair in Summit, NJ from our trained technicians is so important.

But first, a key reminder…

We do want to point out you need professional furnace repair. Please don’t try to tinker around with your gas furnace on your own. We understand how tempting it is to open up the furnace cabinet and look around to see if there’s any little thing you might fix on your own, but don’t do this. Only a licensed professional is permitted to work on an appliance connected to a gas main. The modern furnace is a complex piece of machinery, and even correctly diagnosing what the problem is (i.e. what actually needs to be fixed) requires specialized training.

Now here’s why you need those professionals on the job ASAP

  • Safety: Gas furnaces are not “dangerous” appliances. If they were, they wouldn’t be allowed in homes in the first place. But they do have the potential to create safety hazards if they go without regular maintenance and repairs when needed. Many furnace problems won’t present safety issues, but this isn’t something you want to take a chance on. Calling for repairs right after you notice problems reduces the chances of combustion dangers or gas leaks.
  • Reliability: There is no such thing as a “minor” problem with a furnace. Malfunctions tend to trigger other malfunctions, leading to a chain reaction of problems. If you wait to have a seemingly small problem with your furnace repaired, you’re putting the whole furnace at a higher risk of breaking down on you—probably right when you need it the most.
  • Cost: It’s less expensive to fix a problem when it’s small rather than to wait until it has worsened and possibly created bigger problems. If you wait ­too long, you may end up paying to have the whole furnace replaced. And that’s probably the most expensive “repair” there is!)
  • Energy efficiency: Letting a furnace run when something’s wrong with it means the furnace will have to put in extra work and drain more power to run. As long as you keep using a furnace in need of repair, you’ll probably be paying more to run it than you should.
