When to Schedule Your Seasonal Furnace Maintenance

Posted on: October 15, 2013

If you’re wondering when to schedule your seasonal furnace maintenance, then the answer is simple: there’s no better time than now! Ideally, furnace maintenance should be performed at the end of the summer or the beginning of the fall—before your heating system is really needed for heavy-duty work for the year. This ensures that your furnace is in fighting-form for the cold months ahead.

The Benefits of Seasonal Furnace Maintenance

Your furnace worked perfectly last season, so why do you need furnace maintenance this year? We understand that you don’t want to pay for unnecessary repairs or services, but let us assure you—seasonal maintenance is crucial. There are many benefits to furnace maintenance, including:

  • Increased system lifespan
  • Improved energy efficiency – which often leads to lower utility bills
  • Improved overall performance and home comfort
  • Decreased frequency of breakdowns and necessary repairs
  • Assured compliance with all safety codes and regulations – parts of your air handling unit could have cracked over the summer, meaning toxic carbon monoxide could leak from your furnace
  • Assured compliance with your manufacturer’s warranty – many manufacturers require that their systems be inspected annually in order to maintain their warranty—check your warranty for details
