Stay Cozy: The Case for Summer Furnace Repair in MN

As the temperatures warm up, most people are focused on keeping their homes cool and comfortable. You might be worried about your HVAC’s performance and worries about your furnace fade into the background. But the summer is the perfect season to get your furnace repaired and serviced for the upcoming seasons. Hire a licensed HVAC expert from Burnsville Heating & Air Conditioning to clean your furnace, make repairs, and get it serviced when the appointment doesn’t interrupt your home. Then, you can enjoy cozy warmth all winter without scheduling emergency appointments during the busy season.

Benefits of Summer Furnace Repair

If your furnace was making noises last winter, or it’s been a while since its previous servicing appointment, don’t wait until winter to bring in an expert. Here are some crucial advantages of scheduling summer furnace repairs instead:

Be Ready to Stay Cozy During the Colder Months

When the first chilly day of fall arrives, you can flip on your heater without performing a long list of maintenance tasks. Hire a trusted furnace checkup professional to handle everything earlier in the year when you don’t need your heater. Then, you can enjoy a long, cozy season at home without interruptions.

Reduce the Risk of Breakdowns During Winter

Furnace breakdowns during winter aren’t just uncomfortable—they can be dangerous. A well-performing furnace protects you, your family, and your house from icy cold temperatures. But routine maintenance and furnace repairs reduce the risk of unexpected breakdowns. A repair technician can replace broken components and perform a complete furnace check-up so you don’t have to worry about emergencies.

Increase Your Furnace’s Lifespan

Preventive maintenance makes your furnace last longer. Small problems like dirty filters and parts falling out of adjustment won’t immediately break your furnace, but they eventually lead to major breakdowns that cost a lot in repairs or force you to replace the whole furnace early.

Increase Your Furnace’s Energy Efficiency and Lower Your Utility Bills

Keeping your furnace clean, well-maintained, and tuned up makes it run more efficiently. Not only will it consume less gas or electricity, but you’ll also see a lower utility bill every month.

Common Furnace Issues in Minnesota

Minnesota has uniquely cold winters, with plunging temperatures that can reach as low as -60° F. Sudden cold snaps and long periods of below-freezing weather can put a lot of strain on your furnace. The last thing you want is breakage or malfunctions that take the heater out of commission or make you worried that it’s not safe to have it on.

Some of the most common problems local Minnesotans experience with their furnaces are:

  • Your gas furnace isn’t producing heat, which can be caused by a blown fuse, an ignition problem, a broken thermostat, or having the pilot light go out.
  • It’s hard to get your home warm; some causes of an insufficiently heating furnace are dirty filters and malfunctioning blower motors.
  • Problems with the thermostat
  • Lots of unusual noises, which can indicate wear and breakage caused by age, an overworked motor, or dirty filters

Don’t wait until the weather starts to cool down to schedule a service appointment for your furnace. Servicing your heater during the summer is much more convenient and gives you plenty of time to fully address repairs and maintenance before you need heat. Scheduling service appointments during the summer can save you money, as you don’t have to worry about scheduling an appointment during the busy fall season.
