How Often Should My Furnace be Inspected?

If you are like most people, you probably don’t give your furnace much thought until colder temperatures creep in. However, if your furnace is experiencing issues, this may mean that you have to go days – or longer – without adequate heat. The fact is, if you scheduled regular furnace inspections, these problems would not’t be an issue. The question is, when and how often should these inspections be scheduled? 

What do Furnace Manufacturers Have to Say? 

According to the companies that actually manufacture furnaces, you should schedule annual inspections and maintenance service by a professional technician. Many manufacturers also have certain types of language in their warranties that stated if you fail to properly maintain the unit, breakdowns and other issues may not be covered. While this may not mean that your warranty is going to be voided completely without annual maintenance, it is best not to take chances. 

The Importance of Regular Inspections and Maintenance 

If you are still on the fence about whether or not you should schedule this yearly service, you may be interested in some of the benefits it offers. Specific advantages of annual furnace maintenance include:

  • Fewer breakdowns and fewer repairs
  • Fewer repair related costs
  • Better system efficiency (power and money savings benefits)
  • Longer system life

Keep in mind, a furnace that is operating properly and efficiently is going to last longer. You also won’t be bothered with small, annoying issues during the cold months of the year. In the long run, regular furnace maintenance, which typically costs very little, can help you save hundreds of dollars in repair costs and energy usage, which makes it more than worth the investment. 

If you are planning to schedule maintenance, the best course of action is to call the professionals. After all, they have the ability, know-how and tools to handle any issue they may come across to ensure your furnace continues working properly regardless of how cold it may get outside.
