It goes without saying that you have a lot of responsibilities that keep you busy as a homeowner. You have to be sure your gutters are clean and clear of debris (even during the winter!) as this helps to prevent the formation of ice dams. You also have to worry about making sure your driveway and sidewalk are clear of snow and ice. But one thing a lot of homeowners seem to forget this time of year is that they need to be mindful of when they schedule their annual furnace system maintenance.
Many homeowners don't realize the importance of yearly tune-ups. After all, if the home feels warm, the furnace must be working like it should, right? Wrong - even if your home feels toasty, your furnace may not be running as efficiently as it could, especially if its vital components are covered in dust. Furnace maintenance appointments are important as this is when your system is cleaned, made more efficient, and it's also when many potential problems are caught and dealt with before they result in a breakdown.
What happens during a furnace maintenance appointment?
Scheduling an appointment with Pivotal Home Solutions is easy and convenient for the busy homeowner.

We will do our best to find a time for a tune-up that fits with your hectic life!
On the day of your appointment, the technician will contact you to let you know their estimated time of arrival. Once he or she gets to your home, they will perform the following furnace maintenance to-do's:
Clean and adjust burners and pilot

Check air filter
Check for furnace noises or vibrations
Check that safeties operate
