Why Service Your Furnace?
Furnace malfunctions can be costly and dangerous. Regularly servicing your furnace will help you avoid getting blindsided by exorbitant repair costs, or ending up without heat when you need it most. Regular service will also ensure that your heating system is running as efficiently as possible, so you know you're getting the most out of that heating bill you have to pay every month. If you find yourself sad about the cost of your annual furnace maintenance, remember that you’re going to much more upset if you have to pay for emergency service in the middle of winter.
Remember to always contact your gas provider IMMEDIATELY if you smell gas and make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are working.
