What Are the Benefits of McKinney Furnace Services?
Furnace services aren’t a luxury, they’re an absolute necessity to keep your home comfortable and safe—and to prevent your heater from needlessly draining your bank account via monthly energy bills. Here are a few of the compelling reasons why you need furnace services for your McKinney home’s heating system.
Save Money on Energy Costs
Most homeowners don't want to pay any more than is absolutely necessary on their energy bills, but that’s exactly what happens when an aging or damaged heating system becomes less efficient over time. Your HVAC system already incurs the biggest expense by far in your monthly energy costs, because your heater and air conditioner need to burn significant fuel to provide the thermal energy that keeps your home comfortable. But over time, your heater deteriorates and needs to use more and more fuel to provide the same amount of heat. That loss of efficiency results in significant increases in your utility bills. Furnace services such as regular maintenance, repairs, or installing a brand-new furnace will restore energy efficiency to your home and save you a lot of money.
More Comfortable Home
While saving money is obviously a nice perk, feeling comfortable in your own home is priceless. While your parents' solution to a cold house may have been to "Just put on another sweater," you should be able to set your home to the ideal temperature for you—regardless of what you’re wearing. Professional heater care will ensure your system is always up to the task of keeping the warm air blasting, so you and your family can be snug and cozy all winter long.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Have you noticed that no matter how much you clean, there seems to be a layer of dust on everything the very next day? Or that you can see visible dust motes floating in the air? A forced-air system in good condition won't have a negative effect on your indoor air quality. But over time, ductwork becomes coated in a layer of dust, dirt, pet hair, and other allergens that are spewed around your home by the forced-air system—seriously lowering the air quality you breathe. Simple furnace services such as duct cleaning, swapping out the filter, and maintaining other components will drastically improve air quality. If you or a family member suffer from allergies, a good heating system cleaning can reduce allergy suffering significantly.
Safer for You and Your Family
If you have a natural gas furnace, annual maintenance is critically important to prevent the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide, the colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that is fatal when inhaled in large quantities, is a byproduct of natural gas fuel. Normally, your HVAC system vents it outside where it can dissipate harmlessly. But if parts of the system become degraded, it can leak the dangerous gas into your home.
An experienced professional knows how to check for any signs of potential trouble during gas furnace preventative maintenance, and get issues fixed before they have a chance to cause harm to the people and pets in your house. While electric furnaces don't carry the same risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, they can cause other safety issues such as fire when they fall into disrepair. So, furnace services are still important to keep your property safe and sound. You should also have carbon monoxide and smoke detectors installed on every level of the house, especially near sleeping areas.

What Are the Signs I Need Furnace Services Such as Repair or Replacement?
Not sure if your heater is due (or long overdue) for professional attention? If you’re aware of the signs that something isn't right, you can get help before the problem spirals into a much bigger, costly and stressful issue. Here are some key McKinney furnace services warning signs:
The house doesn't get warm enough, no matter how high you turn up the thermostat
Your utility bill seems to be increasing month after month
You hear strange sounds such as banging, rattling, grinding, or clunking noises from your ducts
There are hot and cold zones where one part of the house is boiling hot and another is freezing cold
The system is constantly cycling on and off in short bursts
The burner flame appears yellow or orange (it should be blue)
Your unit is leaking water
Your system is more than 15-years-old
How Often Do I Need Furnace Services?
How long you can go without maintenance may vary according to factors such as how frequently the system is used, but the general rule of thumb is to hire annual furnace maintenance services from a qualified professional. This includes a comprehensive furnace inspection, any repairs that are needed at the time, and a Total Comfort Furnace Tune-Up.
What Time of Year is Best to Schedule McKinney Furnace Services?
The ideal time for McKinney furnace services is right before you need to fire it up for the first time in autumn. That way, your service professional can ensure your system is in excellent shape and ready to go full steam ahead into the colder months—and you won't get any unpleasant surprises when those cold autumn winds start to blow.
What Can I Do to Avoid Needing McKinney Furnace Services in the Future?
Whether you have a brand-new system or an older unit, there are a few regular maintenance steps you can take to help keep your heater in excellent condition year-round. Preventative maintenance will extend the unit’s lifespan, so you can avoid repairs and replacement for longer. Here are three tips that will help your furnace surpass its average life expectancy:
- Change air filters frequently. Exactly how often they need to be changed will depend on the filter’s size, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions. Changing the filter will keep your system running smoothly and help to prevent damage from wear and tear. It will also improve your indoor air quality and help to relieve allergy suffering.
Install a smart thermostat that can be programmed with a schedule. By programming the system to turn off or turn down during times when you’re typically out of the house or asleep under a cozy blanket, you can save a lot of money on energy costs and keep your system in great shape by avoiding overuse.
Seal your home against air drafts in vulnerable places such as door jambs and window frames. Drafts let in cold air and let out warm air, changing the temperature in your home so your furnace has to operate longer (or continuously) to keep up. This causes it to suffer a lot of wear and tear, and it may break down before its time. Drafts also waste a considerable amount of energy because you’re basically paying to heat the outdoors.
How Often Does the Air Filter Need to be Changed?
When you need to change the air filter depends on its size:
A 5 to 6 inch filter needs to be changed every 9 to 12 months
A 3 to 4 inch filter needs to be changed every six months or so
A thin 2 to 3 inch filter needs to be changed at least every three months, especially in winter
That being said, if you take a look at the filter and it’s visibly dirty, or you notice issues in your home such as excessive dust or irritated allergies due to lowered air quality, it’s definitely time to swap the old filter out for a fresh, clean one.
