Schedule Your Annual Furnace Safety Check-Up for Peace of Mind this Winter Season

Just like you regularly change the oil in your car and go to the doctor for an annual visit, your furnace must be checked yearly to ensure safe operation. According to the National Fire Protection Association, heating equipment is a leading cause of fire in U.S. homes. If left unchecked, faulty furnaces and heating systems can lead to every homeowner's worst nightmare.

As the only HVAC service provider in Ohio whose technicians are professionally trained and certified heat exchanger experts, our technicians share why you should schedule routine furnace maintenance for a worry-free winter. We provide gas furnace maintenance as well as service to maintain your electric furnace. If you have a heat pump, we can make sure your unit is running optimally and that your heat exchange is cleaned and ready for winter.

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Leaks

One of the most critical safety aspects of a furnace check-up is the prevention of carbon monoxide (CO) leaks. CO is a colorless, odorless gas that can be produced by malfunctioning furnaces. Atlas Butler technicians will perform a thorough visual safety inspection of the heat exchanger using a variety of tools - light, mirrors, camera - to check for any cracks or areas of distress that can result in CO leaks. We will also assess your gas furnace (propane and natural gas) to ensure proper ventilation, keeping your family and friends safe from this silent threat.

Improving Indoor Air Quality

Your furnace heats your home and circulates the air you breathe. A dirty furnace can negatively impact heating efficiency and indoor air quality, leading to health issues such as allergy flare-ups and respiratory problems. During an annual check-up, our technicians will check or replace filters, ensuring the air circulating through your home is clean and healthy, and the humidity levels are optimal.

Lower Your Energy Bills

A furnace inspection and cleaning before the cold months start can help maximize your energy savings because your furnace is running at peak performance. A furnace that is not regularly maintained uses more energy and increases your gas/electric bill.

Preventive Furnace Maintenance Eliminates Emergencies

When an Atlas Butler technician comes out to inspect your furnace system, they will ensure it operates properly and efficiently. Waiting until there's an issue to get an inspection can result in higher bills and a more costly HVAC repair.

Peace of Mind

The most valuable benefit of a yearly furnace maintenance check is the peace of mind it brings. Knowing that your furnace has been inspected and is operating safely allows you to enjoy a warm and comfortable home without worrying about potential safety hazards.
