Getting your furnace checked yearly is extremely important for both your energy bill and also the health of you and your family. Routine maintenance will keep your furnace running smoothly and with less energy. Your furnace may also be leaking carbon monoxide and creating a serious threat, or it could just be leaking air out of one of its ducts and will cause your air conditioning to seem ineffective. Whatever the reason, neglecting your furnace can lead to a whole mess of problems. Keeping your furnace in good working order will help you avoid tons of trouble and save money. The best way to stay on top of this is to schedule yearly check-ups early in the fall and also to familiarize yourself with your furnace’s life.
Before even searching for a heating and cooling company, take the time to get to know your furnace. Learn how old it is, when it was last checked, and if any repairs have been made and what they were. This will make a furnace check-up go smoothly, without surprises, and quickly. Now that you’ve done your homework, MAKE SURE to avoid the two most common misconceptions about furnace maintenance:
- Do not think that having a new furnace means you can skip out on getting it checked. New furnaces are just as likely to need a thorough cleaning and inspection to make sure everything is working as it should be.
- Even if your furnace is working wonderfully, it still needs to be cleaned once a year. Since you’ve taken the trouble to have a professional come and assess your furnace, keep them around a little longer to do a full inspection and cleaning.
