Winter’s Coming: Is Your Furnace Ready?

Winters may not be as harsh here in Sacramento as they are in other parts of the country, but you still don’t want to find yourself without your furnace in the cold winter season. Unfortunately, heaters often break in the middle of the winter.

After sitting dormant during the summer months, furnaces suddenly are put to work when winter arrives. Ones that are reaching the end of their lifespan and have worn out parts may fail right away or work for a few weeks before suddenly failing.

Heating Repair in Sacramento | Bonney Plumbing Having been a local heating repair Sacramento CA provider since 1978, our team here at Bonney Plumbing, Heating, and Air Conditioning has handled thousands of emergency calls on cold winter nights when families find themselves suddenly without heat. While we’re always available to help, we know what a hassle it can be to have to shiver until a technician can reach you. That’s why we recommend having a heating system checkup done once a year during the fall season before winter arrives.

A fall furnace checkup doesn’t just reduce your risk of ending up in an emergency situation during the winter. It also provides a number of other benefits, including:

  • Lower Energy Bills. During check-ups, we often spot problems that are leading to inefficiency. We can repair issues and ensure that your heating system is working optimally and not wasting energy.
  • Longer-Lasting Furnaces. We can handle manufacturer’s recommended maintenance services during a fall furnace check-up. Completing these maintenance tasks on schedule can help to extend the life of your furnace.
  • Lower Repair Bills. It’s often less expensive to address a problem than it is to make a repair. If one part of a furnace isn’t working properly, it can lead to damage to other parts, resulting in a bigger repair bill. During a check-up, potential problems can be addressed right away before they lead to further and more costly problems.
  • A Safer Home. A fall furnace inspection can uncover dangerous gas leaks with a natural gas furnace or potential fire hazards with other types of furnaces.

A complete furnace check-up should include a full inspection of every part of the furnace whether you have a natural gas-fired heater, an electric heater, a split furnace system, a package system or a heat pump. The vents, motor, manifold, burners and thermostat should all be inspected, and that’s all included in the Fall Furnace Tune-Up that we offer.
