How much do you pay to heat your home? Has that number increased over the past couple of years, even though you aren’t using more heat? Did you know a furnace tune-up could help with your energy bills?
Before you blame rising gas and oil prices, consider the other option: it’s possible that you just need your furnace tuned up. Like any piece of important equipment, residential furnaces tend to suffer the effects of wear and tear, especially when they aren’t regularly maintained. Many homeowners don’t service their furnaces to the extent that the manufacturers suggest. Contrary to popular belief, not doing the maintenance your furnace needs actually costs more in the long run, since the device starts to lose its efficiency. If you’re noticing that your heating bills lately have been too high, it could mean that your heating system just needs a tune-up to be restored to its original potential
That’s why Martinelli Plumbing & Heating, Inc., offers precision furnace tune-ups for all furnace models. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain from our experts tuning up your heating system to give you a guaranteed more reliable furnace this year!
