The importance of a working, well-maintained furnace doesn’t just have to do with keeping you and your household warm. Furnaces are one of the most important appliances in the home to keep in proper working order for many reasons.
- It provides heat when Kansas City temperatures drop low;
- It also keeps you safe and healthy by emitting clean air. If it’s not working properly or lacks the right maintenance it can create hazards and problems; and
- It helps keep you cool in the summer as it moves the air through your home.
The heating and cooling system in a typical residential home in the Kansas City area runs nearly 365 days a year. The air conditioner is also using the blower on the indoor unit to push the cool air through the home so maintenance is critical for optimum performance all year round. Furnace repair and maintenance is important for cooling in the summer, too!
Safety and wellness in the home is part of Balance Point Heating & Cooling’s Mission Statement. Regular maintenance of a furnace is important to check for carbon monoxide that can potentially leak from the flue as the furnace runs creating a critical hazard to people and pets in the home.
Carbon monoxide is colorless, tasteless and odorless – routine maintenance of your furnace is important to keeping your home safe. If your furnace is reaching its lifespan, regular maintenance is a must and installation of a CO detector is recommended for the home. Balance Point Heating & Cooling furnace repair specialists can advise you more about this potentially hazardous gas when they are in your home performing your maintenance check.

When do I need a new furnace?
If you’re new to home-ownership, or don’t really know much about HVAC, don’t worry. The main thing you need to know is that all furnaces:
- Do have a typical lifespan.
- Do need maintenance in order to prevent harmful health risks and to extend their lifespan.
Furnaces typically last around 15-20 years. Of course, if it’s still running and keeping your house warm, that’s a good sign. But if it starts to break down or energy bills skyrocket, that might be a sign it’s time to think about a replacement. New systems are continually being designed to become more energy-efficient. Some homeowners are even looking to heat pumps as an alternative for heating and cooling a home.
If you’re unsure of the age of your unit, make the right choice and call us to come and perform maintenance on your system to make sure it is operating at its best and operating safely, too. If you’d like to see what options are available to you by installing a new system, our team will be happy to provide you with a free estimate.
