Where has the year gone? It seems like just yesterday we were grilling burgers and doing cannonballs into the pool, and now here we are, almost November; we’re pressing our Halloween costumes and planning our Thanksgiving menus.
And preparing vacation homes for winter with annual furnace inspections.
We are doing that… right?
If you haven’t considered calling Air Handlers OBX to schedule a thorough inspection of the furnace in your Outer Banks vacation home, please understand that we strongly urge you to do so. Having an experienced HVAC technician perform routine annual maintenance of your furnace — even and especially during the off-season — is important for the life of your system, and for the safety of your vacation rental home.
An annual furnace inspection will:
Ensure proper airflow.
It’s all part of the inspection process. The Air Handlers OBX inspection technician dispatched to your Outer Banks rental home will check your furnace to make sure that proper air is flowing. Restricted or limited airflow places an unnecessary strain on your furnace that can lead to increased repairs and a shortened lifespan.
Keep your vacation rental home safe.
In order to produce heat, and to work efficiently and safely, the combustion process at work within your furnace must work exactly as it should. The smallest of problems can lead to a gas leak, which can lead to fire or even dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
Reduce the need for repairs.
Air Handlers OBX receives many phone calls from vacation rental homeowners at the beginning of each beach season because air ducts are clogged or their HVAC system isn’t working. Or homeowners will take advantage of peace and quiet on the beach in January, and discover — shivering — that their furnace isn’t working. These issues are preventable; simply call Air Handlers OBX for an annual inspection and tune-up.
Improve energy efficiency.
A furnace tune-up should include the cleaning and inspection of the furnace burner and heat exchanger. In addition to ensuring safe operation, this will keep your furnace running efficiently all winter.
Maintain your manufacturer’s warranty.
If you’ve recently replaced the furnace in your Outer Banks vacation rental home, chances are it’s still under warranty. And chances are, in order to maintain that warranty, you’re required to perform regular routine maintenance. A furnace tune-up from Air Handlers OBX will satisfy that requirement.
