New or old, keep your furnace in good working order, and it will serve your family well. How is this accomplished? With scheduled annual furnace inspections!
How Annual Furnace Inspections Benefit You
“Is an annual checkup for your furnace really that important,” you ask? Good question. The answer is a hearty yes, and for 3 very good reasons. Annual furnace inspections:
- Prolong the life of your heating system (good)
- Save money on your energy bills (better)
- Decrease health risks (best)
Good – Your furnace is a lot like your car. When you ignore it, it breaks down requiring more time and money to restore it to good working order. When you don’t maintain your car’s engine with regular oil changes, for example, your car will die. It will never to be restored to life again, and you can forget about good working order!
Better – Failure to maintain your furnace annually will increase monthly heating bills, too. When you neglect your furnace, it can’t run efficiently. Therefore, it must work harder to do its job to keep your family warm. And that means higher energy bills.
Best – Yes, furnace maintenance decreases health risks. Your furnace could be leaking carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is that colorless and odorless gas which causes headaches, dizziness, nausea, emergency room visits and even death. This reason alone is enough to have your furnace inspected annually. If your furnace is leaking this gas, your Blue Frost Heating & Cooling HVAC professional will find the leak during a furnace inspection.
When to Schedule Annual Furnace Inspections
We recommend you schedule annual furnace inspections in the fall, September 22 – December 21. Ideally, furnace maintenance should be done before the cold Chicago winter tries to blast us into hibernation. Think jammies, slippers, throws, something hot to drink, fireplace and a favorite TV series marathon here. The point I’m trying to make is this: have your furnace inspected annually. Schedule a time that works best to have Blue Frost Heating & Cooling inspect your furnace on approximately the same date every year. Then, just as you would do with an annual appointment with the doctor, dentist, and eye doctor, schedule it and keep it. Your health and the health of your furnace depend on consistent and regular care.
