Why Is Seasonal Heating System Maintenance So Important?

Your family. Your values. Your dog. Many things in life are more important than scheduling annual professional heating system maintenance. Even so, the importance of maintenance is not to be underestimated. It is essential for winter preparation – and as much as we hate to break it to you, Iowa’s legendarily heavy snowfalls are just around the corner.


Seasonal Maintenance Is Preventative Maintenance

Which would you rather do: pay for regular oil changes, or pay for regular engine replacements? No brainer!

Now, would you rather pay for seasonal HVAC system maintenance, or pay for a new furnace more often than you have to? Same logic!

The average lifespan of a furnace is 15 to 20 years – but only when it receives routine maintenance, which includes lubricating moving parts, tightening electrical connections, adjusting fan belt tension, and inspecting and fine-tuning all the other components requisite for reliable and efficient operation of the burner, heat exchanger, ignition system and blower motor. Without routine maintenance? Well, you might as well start buying furnaces in bulk if that’s your plan – and start looking forward to living without heat for long stretches of winter while you’re at it.


Seasonal Maintenance Reduces Energy Consumption

The extent to which Americans should cut down on energy consumption is a subject of intense political debate nowadays. If you came to O’Connor Heating & Cooling for a discussion about energy policy, then you will be disappointed. But if you like paying as little as possible on energy bills, then you have come to the right place!

Our comprehensive approach to seasonal furnace tune-ups includes cleaning the combustion chamber, changing the air filter, inspecting the burner, and replacing the oil filter (when applicable). All of these steps share a common purpose: they help the furnace perform more efficiently.

Better yet, regular furnace cleaning will improve your indoor air quality. When we remove dust, debris and other irritants from your HVAC system, you’ll be able to breathe easier all winter long!


Seasonal Maintenance Promotes Greater Safety

Carbon monoxide. Nitrous oxide. Sulfur dioxide. If your heat exchanger gets a crack – even a tiny one – then your furnace could start releasing all of these toxic gasses into your home. Carbon monoxide inhalation alone sends more than 100,000 Americans to the emergency room each year.

When you welcome an O’Connor Heating & Cooling HVAC tech to your home, you’ll know whether your heat exchanger is cracked in a matter of minutes. No one can safely repair a heat exchanger. We can replace one, but in the majority of cases total furnace replacement is more cost-effective. If replacing your furnace makes the most sense from an economic standpoint, then we’ll continue to create great value at your home or place of business by installing a top-of-the-line furnace by Rheem.
