Your Omaha Residential Heating Service

Most homeowners understand that regular maintenance is required to keep their property in the best condition. Despite their efforts, a lot of homeowners forget to take care of one important thing: the furnace. Regularly scheduled furnace repair services and maintenance can prevent major damage to your home (and wallet). Furnace repair and maintenance is an essential part of home ownership and home safety, particularly if you have an older home with an older furnace. Furnace cleaning and home heating maintenance is necessary at least once a year, if not more.

Checking coils, valves, wires and cleaning are imperative because a furnace or boiler can become ineffective, vents can become blocked with dust, carbon monoxide can leak into the home, and exposed wires can easily cause a house fire. The experts at Caniglia Heating & Cooling can provide affordable furnace repair services, including inspections, cleanings, and filter replacement.

Furnace Cleaning (and why it’s important)

While your furnace is doing its job to heat your home, it becomes a magnet for dirt, dust, and other sources of matter and debris. If you neglect your furnace and don’t keep it clean, you’re actually letting harmful debris make their way into your house, which can cause a variety of health issues. You may find that you and your family are more prone to viruses and germs because they aren’t being properly cleaned from the air ducts.

In general, a furnace that is uncared for can significantly decrease the quality of your air. Aside from poor health conditions, an unclean furnace can affect its overall performance, causing it to not heat your home up evenly or as powerfully as it did in the past.

Four Reasons You Should Schedule a Furnace Inspection Today

An annual furnace inspection ensures that your furnace is in good condition and will work when you need it the most. It can also prevent serious health risks and costly emergency repairs to your home. Here are four of the main reasons you should be scheduling an annual furnace inspection:

1. Prevents Carbon Monoxide Leaks

When the heat exchanger in your furnace becomes cracked, harmful gases like carbon monoxide can leak into your home. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and deadly gas. Don’t put your family’s safety at risk – make annual furnace inspections part of a regular routine to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

2. Increases Efficiency

Don’t make your furnace work harder than it has to. During an annual home heating inspection, our expert furnace repair technicians can inspect, clean, and repair your furnace, ensuring that it works as it should. Your furnace is most efficient when all of its parts are clean, without anything preventing it from working correctly.

3. Clean Air Filters

Blocked vents and air filters can cause major problems with the airflow in your home or business, as well as degrade the efficiency of your furnace, which means you could have cold spots in your home. Major furnace repairs or even a whole furnace replacement could become necessary if smaller issues are ignored. During a home heating inspection, our technicians will replace or clean your furnace’s air filters to protect against dirt and debris circulating through your house.

4. Extends the Life of Your Furnace

A regular, annual furnace inspection can prolong the life of your furnace. Like most things, your furnace’s internal parts wear out over time. During an inspection, our technicians are trained to find problems (such as worn-out parts) that if left unattended, could result in a major repair.

Keep Warm This Winter

Keep your home safe and warm this winter. The dangers of not having your furnace cleaned and inspected could result in blocked air vents or carbon monoxide leaking into your home.
