You can save yourself hundreds of dollars in potential repair fees by regularly maintaining your heating system. Your heating system requires regular maintenance to function properly, just like any other machine. Also, regular maintenance can extend the overall lifespan of your furnace.

High Energy Usage
You may not know this, but a faulty heating system can cause your energy usage to go high along with your energy bills. This is because your heating system will increase the amount of energy used to create the level of heat you want, regardless of how faulty it is (at least, until it breakdown from overuse). Regular maintenance can help significantly lower your energy bills. This way, you can even save more money. The reason is simple when a heating system is to be serviced; one of the first things to be done is to clean the burner assembly and heat exchanger. This alone can increase the energy efficiency of your furnace. Also, a well-serviced heating system will have no issues with proper airflow. This means that there will be little to block the spread of heat around the house. Thus, improving the energy efficiency of the heater. There are some things you can do yourself to improve the energy efficiency of your heater. One of them is to replace the air filter of the heater regularly. Cleaning the area around the furnace until it is free of debris can also help.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon Monoxide is a toxic gas that is relaxed when heat combusts. It is colorless, odorless and cannot be detected with any of your five senses. A faulty furnace can create more carbon monoxide than perfectly maintained ones. Carbon monoxide poisoning can potentially kill you and the other living things in your home. So, you could be putting all the residents of your home at risk by not servicing your heating system regularly.
Ignition or Pilot Control Problems
Pilot control and ignition control are the most important parts of your heating system’s furnace. Your furnace will not be able to function properly if these aren’t working correctly.
