Why you should schedule your furnace repair TODAY
There’s nothing quite like walking into your warm and comfortable home at the end of a cold winter day, at least that is if you haven’t forgotten to schedule that essential furnace repair! Forgetting to call on your furnace repair can do more than just make your home too cold, it can sometimes cause big problems for your family. We get it, sometimes you save by using generators, space heaters, and candles for warmth instead. These are good temporary solutions but sometimes they don’t always help your family as much as you think.
The cost of delaying your furnace repair can often be more than just financial. Here are just a few reasons why you should schedule your furnace repair TODAY!
When your furnace goes out you’ll probably compensate by using a space heater or generator to keep your family warm. These are good for a time, but if you get in the habit of leaving these unattended it can cause problems! The NFPA has reported that 86% of deadly residential fires were caused by portable space heaters. Scary! Don’t rely on these short term fixes, repair your furnace instead!
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon monoxide is a scentless gas that can cause severe illness or death when overexposed. It can come from a broken furnace, or even from gas and oil burning portable heaters. Improperly vented heating sources can release this harmful gas into your home! When a technician maintains and repairs your furnace they will check for carbon monoxide leaks, keeping your family’s safety top of mind!
Living in a cold home is never comfortable, but it is harmful to your health as well! Living in a cold home leaves your family susceptible to colds, pneumonia, and even high blood pressure. While living in the cold may save a little money, it will never be worth the health risks!
When your pipes get too cold they could be in danger of freezing. This not only means that your water won’t come when you want it, but you risk burst pipes! When water freezes in the pipes it can expand to the point of cracking. When spring comes and these pipes thaw out you’ll find leakage and water damage around your home. A properly working furnace is essential for the function of many systems in your home!
