How Regular Furnace Maintenance Can Save You Money

I have yet to meet someone who says they would not like to save as much money as possible on their utility bills. It is universally understood that we all would. Unfortunately, it is not universally understood just how much we can do to ensure the realization of those energy savings.


Your friends at Mast Heating & Cooling know this, so we are more than happy to help our customers and neighbors. That is why there are very few things about the HVAC industry we believe in more than this: regular maintenance. With Old Man Winter getting ready to huff and puff his way into the Western Michigan area, we think it is a great time to talk about just how much regular furnace maintenance will not only keep your family warm and cozy but also how it will keep your system in tip-top shape…..all while shaving some money off that utility bill. Check out these reasons why regular maintenance matters:

Energy Savings

A furnace that is not maintained becomes dirty and the parts become worn and inefficient. This causes your system to run more and this, of course, leads to a higher energy bill.

Less Repairs

Is your HVAC system repairman’s phone number on speed dial? If it seems that way, the repairs on your system are probably piling up. Service calls are not cheap and if they keep mounting, a system breakdown or premature replacement may be on your horizon.

Carbon Monoxide Safety

This is a real danger during heating season. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, tasteless, odorless gas that is often called the silent killer. Regular maintenance will ensure your furnace is not leaking this deadly gas—keeping your family safe.

While you can take care of some of the maintenance yourself, such as changing air filters and keeping fresh batteries in your thermostat, there comes a time when professional maintenance is the best option. Mast Heating & Cooling offers complete furnace maintenance services. We specialize in Trane products, but our professionally-licensed HVAC technicians service all makes and models.
