Furnace Tune Up Can Ensure Comfort and Efficiency Throughout the Winter Season


Even homes in Florida have furnaces that need to be tuned up for the winter. Well, they are basically your park model homes and RV’s. As the affordable housing crises continues to loom around, many people are downsizing and deciding to jump on board with the tiny home movement. Many of these tiny homes have all of the comforts of a traditional home, but for half the cost.

Making sure that your park model home or RV has a properly maintained furnace, can provide its’ occupants with a comfortable experience throughout the cold and chilly winter season. It has already dipped into the 40’s in Florida, so this means it is going to be a cold winter. You want to make sure that your home is properly heated when those deep freeze cold snaps move through the area in December and January. If your furnace system fails in the winter, it can bring you serious discomfort, both in and out of the wallet. An inefficient furnace is one of the reasons for a skyrocketing energy bill. For this reason, making sure your furnace is tuned up now can dramatically improve the efficiency and performance of the HVAC system.

The furnace repair should be done on a yearly basis to prevent a breakdown during winter. It is a good practice to do the furnace tune-up so that during the peak loads in winter it provides the right heating comfort. This will ensure reduced energy and maintenance cost in the long term. If the occupants feel that the interior of the home is cold, they should get their furnace checked and repaired by a professional technician or contractor.

Furnace problems can also lead to health issues, such as carbon monoxide leaks and increased humidity levels which can lead to mold growth. The wood interiors can swell and get damaged. On the other hand, too little humidity causes health problems as well. Skin irritation due to dryness, sore throat and itchy eyes are some common causes due to low humidity.  So a furnace tune up can help keep the doctor away.

A proper furnace repair before the winter season also ensures that the duct work is cleaned up of all the deposits, allergens, dust and other harmful particles from the system. If they are allowed to stay there, they will be circulated throughout the home and in process cause health complication like allergies, breathing problems and other pollution related complications. Thus a furnace tune-up may include duct cleaning and sealing to ensure a pollution free home that is properly heated through out the winter. Cleaning and sealing the ducts can also be a big energy saver as studies have shown an average leakage rate of 35% in residential HVAC systems. Sealing the system will help efficiency and comfort.
