Welcome to the dog days of summer here in Kane County. The weather is warm during the day and nice at night. The last thing you’re probably thinking about during this weather is furnace maintenance.
Yet, the late summer and early fall is a good time to start thinking about furnace maintenance and a furnace inspection. Cold weather will be here before you know it, and you want to make sure your furnace is ready for winter.
In this blog post, we’ll review some of the reasons you should schedule your furnace service this fall with the team here at JNJ.
Avoid a furnace breakdown this winter
Picture it: it’s a cold January night here in Illinois. Calling the temperatures outside “frigid” would probably be generous. Suddenly, you hear a strange sound coming from your furnace, and the system shuts off.
It’s for situations like these that we offer our 24/7 heating repair services! Still, wouldn’t it be better if you could avoid breakdowns in the first place?
Most HVAC experts agree that professional furnace maintenance is one of the best and most effective ways to prevent heating system problems later in the season. That’s because our expert technicians can catch problems and address wear-and-tear before something breaks.
Save money with improved energy-efficiency
A well-maintained furnace is an energy-efficient furnace, and an energy-efficient furnace is a less expensive furnace to run. “Sure,” you might think. “But, how much will that really save me?” More than you think, and more than these other energy-savings myths.
Well, think about how much you use your furnace here in the winter. This isn’t Florida. Here in Illinois, our furnaces get a lot of “miles” put on them during the winter.
If we told you that we could make your car get an extra 5 miles-per-gallon, that might not matter if you drive only 2 miles everyday. But, if you’re planning a cross-country roadtrip? That can add up to major savings!
Our technicians are furnace inspection specialists. They’ll clean the unit and remove dust that saps your efficiency. By the end of the maintenance, your furnace will be ready to save you some money this winter.

Get more life out of your furnace
If you’re like us, you want to get the most life out of your furnace as possible. While JNJ offers new furnace installation services, you want your furnace to live a long, efficient life keeping you and your family warm.
When our technician comes out to your home for furnace maintenance, we’ll look at the entire system and fulfill a checklist of items specifically designed to boost your energy-efficiency and ensure the long-term health of the system. That includes addressing wear-and-tear issues in older systems that could lead to a breakdown.
Here’s something you might not know. Most manufacturers actually require you to get professional annual maintenance on your furnace in order to keep the warranty intact. That warranty can end up saving you a ton of money, so it’s often a good idea to schedule service.
Why is the late summer / early fall a good time to schedule furnace maintenance?
We recommend that you schedule your furnace service prior to turning on your furnace for the season. This allows us to catch any problems with your furnace prior to it starting up—which can sometimes make things worse. Plus, it gives you a full season of high-efficiency heating, maximizing your energy savings.
It might be hard to believe, but cold nights in September are just around the corner. It pays to plan ahead, so we recommend giving us a call and scheduling your furnace maintenance in the early fall before things get chilly here.
