With winter approaching, now is the time to make sure your furnace is running at peak efficiency for the season! As the temperatures threaten to drop, it may not be something you consider a requirement if your furnace has been working fine. You may even be wondering if annual inspection this year is truly necessary.
A great way to look at it is to compare an annual inspection to maintaining your car. If you don’t take care of your vehicle, a lot of things will break down before you realize it. However, like a car, proper maintenance will give you a much longer life on your furnace. By some professional estimates, approximately 75% of all furnace breakdowns in the winter are a result of improper maintenance. Energystar.gov and Energy.gov both agree that a yearly inspection is absolutely necessary to prolonging the life of your furnace.
