Why Should You Get Your Furnace Inspected?

by | Feb 2, 2017 | Air Conditioners

Getting your furnace inspected year after year can seem like a waste of time and money, but it is worth it. Think about it this way, you do not want your furnace to fail in the middle of winter and not have heat. That would make for a long few days until you could get it repaired.

Preventative Maintenance

Furnaces in Chicago and areas like it where the cold can reach extremes take a lot of abuse. This abuse adds up over time and can lead to an eventual failure. Annual inspections can help prevent this failure by addressing small problems before they become larger problems. This will save you money and cold nights if your furnace decides to fail because you skipped the last two inspections.

Better Performance

One of the biggest things about getting an annual inspection is having the maintenance done as well. This will ensure that your furnace is working at it is best. A furnace that is not properly maintained will cost more to heat less. The same is also true of your air conditioner in the summer.

Clean Up and Small Repairs

Over time dirt and rust will build up in your furnace and can become a hazard if allowed to build up. This should be cleaned out along with replacing the filters. If your filter is clogged, then you are going to put extra strain on your blower and are more likely to burn it out. This is another costly repair than can easily be prevented.

There are many reasons to get your furnace inspected annually. If it prevents one major repair, then chances are they have paid for themselves. The cost of an annual inspection is going to be much less than that of a major repair like replacing the blower because your filter was clogged. If you choose to forgo your inspection, then you are taking a gamble that nothing will break.
