No one wants to admit it, but winter is surely on its way here in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. The cooler temps are becoming more and more apparent with each passing week, and area homeowners are taking steps towards ensuring that they’re ready for the ice and snow that lay ahead. One of the most important aspects of home efficiency and performance to look at is the current health of your furnace. When was the last time you had a furnace checkup performed?

If you can’t seem to come up with a suitable answer to this question, you’re not alone. Fortunately, the solution is as easy as scheduling preventative maintenance with the Tom Rostron Company.

Why Preventative Maintenance?

While preventative maintenance for your furnace may not be something that stays top-of-mind at all times, its importance is something that should never go overlooked. Think of your furnace as a vehicle for a moment. When your first drive a new car off the lot, it seems like it will run smoothly for years upon years. At some point, however, one of the many complex systems in the vehicle will begin to experience issues, and you’ll have to enlist the help of a mechanic.

The same can be said for even the highest-quality furnaces, and the smartest way to ward off any problems that might pop up is to perform maintenance regularly and consistently. With a typical furnace maintenance appointment, a number of different processes are performed. These include thermostat calibration, repair of burner assemblies, checking of heat exchanger/flue level/gas, piping/electrical connections and evaluation of your furnace’s pilot.

Depending on the age and condition of your furnace, cleaning and repairs can be all it takes in order to get things back in good working order. In some cases, however, our home performance specialists may recommend replacing your furnace with a new unit, which is the best way to enhance energy efficiency and home comfort.
