Winter is just around the corner, and this is your reminder that a yearly furnace inspection will prolong the life of your HVAC system and save on your energy bills.
Before the cold weather hits, we recommend furnace maintenance to keep it in good running order and prevent it from breaking down when you need it most. To prolong the life of the system, save energy and decrease health risks, a yearly inspection is best.
Benefits of a Furnace Inspection
It is estimated that up to 75% of no-heat calls in the winter are because maintenance wasn’t performed. If not serviced, a furnace can stop working suddenly, leaving your family in the cold.
It can also be a health hazard. Technicians say a furnace inspection can reveal carbon monoxide leaks, which are hard to detect because the gas is colorless and odorless. Approximately 500 people die each year, and 15,000 people are taken to emergency rooms due to exposure.
A furnace check up involves:
- Checking the thermostat settings to make sure the system is properly running.
- Inspecting electrical connections and testing voltage on the system components to prevent any component failure in the future.
- Lubricating moving parts.
- Inspecting the condensate drain so it’s not obstructed.
- Checking system start-up and shutdown controls for proper operations, as well as changing the filter.
