How Often Should My Furnace Be Inspected?Posted On: August 11, 2014
It’s August, so you’ve probably not thought about your furnace much lately, but with summer winding down, now is the time to make plans for the cooler weather that will be here soon. Before the cold weather hits, it is recommended to have professional furnace inspection and maintenance services performed to keep your furnace in good running order, so it doesn’t let you down when you need it most.
HVAC experts recommend that you have annual furnace maintenance performed to prolong the life of the system, save energy, and decrease health risks–which is especially important for gas furnaces that can have deadly consequences if not properly maintained.
Inspecting the Furnace
According to industry experts, up to 75 percent of furnace repair calls each winter are related to the lack of routine furnace maintenance. With proper maintenance, many of the issues that can spur furnace repair service calls can be avoided.
While being stuck without heat is bad enough, not having regular maintenance can actually expose you to even more serious problems. Carbon monoxide leaks are a real threat for homes and businesses that rely on gas furnaces. Since carbon monoxide is both colorless and odorless, detecting it yourself is very difficult. Carbon monoxide is deadly, but even in non-lethal levels, it can cause frequent headaches, nausea, and dizziness.
A typical furnace maintenance inspection includes a number of checks, including electrical connectors, thermostats, condensate drains, filters, and more. A maintenance technician will also lubricate moving parts and clean dirty components to keep your system working more efficiently–saving you money and extending the life of the system.
