Don't wait until your furnace breaks to call for repairs
Like any other machinery the HVAC system, whether it's a vehicle or a snowblower or lawnmower, needs routine maintenance in order to function effectively and efficiently. If you do not take care of regular maintenance the vehicle might break down at the roadside. Also, the neglect of critical repairs to furnaces and HVAC can affect the system's ability to keep your home warm during winter and cool in summer. Not only can it cause temperatures issues, but also other problems.
Though many homeowners get by with a simple tune-up, your heater may need more intensive repairs.
An examination of the regular maintenance of furnaces shows that approximately 20% of furnaces require service before they are considered adequate for most people's requirements or desired level of comfort within their homes. It is important to be aware of increased energy costs and blocked return vents and louder levels.
The following issues can be Avoided With Regular Furnace Maintenance
1. Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
A heat exchanger is utilized after combustion to eliminate harmful gases from gas furnaces. The temperature of the heat exchanger changes the heat exchanger expands and contracts frequently. In time, the heat exchanger could become porous, which allows dangerous gases to escape from your home. Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless.
2. Indoor Air Quality Problems
An unattended HVAC system may affect the air quality, However, it's not as harmful as carbon monoxide. The HVAC system circulates dust, allergens, and polluted air throughout the space as the air flows through clogged filters and filthy ducts.

To save money, many homeowners avoid the routine maintenance they are required to perform. Although the HVAC system appears to be operating in good condition, minor issues cause additional stress on the entire system if they're not treated. If this is the case, operating an HVAC system can lead to more expensive future repairs.
5. HVAC Lifespan Reduced
The added wear and strain on a system leads to costly repairs. This can significantly reduce the lifespan of a system. A sound HVAC system should last between 15 and 20 years if maintained properly.
6. Energy bills and energy waste are increasing.
Although an HVAC system that is regularly maintained and maintained may still be able of heating and cool an area, it will not perform as effectively. The HVAC system will need to work harder to keep the comfort indoors and require a lot more energy for cooling or heating. This is a waste of resources and can have substantial financial consequences on the cost of energy. Although repairs and maintenance can be costly, they will save you money in the long term on your energy costs.
A furnace that's broken can be a major headache. It is important to be conscious of an indoor air pollution problems and fire hazards. But you should do your homework before you start to ensure that you don't get this!

However, there is no research that has been conducted to verify this claim. Up until further notice, you can't rely on anything other than the traditional methods like changing filters or cleaning the vents with bleach wipes.
