Learn more about why a furnace inspection is so important for your home and family below.

1. Increase Efficiency

Furnaces wear out, just like everything else in life. The furnace fan pulls air in, it gets heated, then pushed out through the filter to the rest of your home. Every single part wears over time, or can become clogged with dust and other gunk, which can reduce efficiency and increase the wear.

If your unit is inspected regularly, it’ll be more efficient and save you money on energy costs and big repairs.

2. Increase Lifespan Of Furnace

Having a professional check your furnace once a year means you’ll be able to make your equipment last longer. This also means you’ll be able to save more for when you eventually need to buy a new furnace, because this one probably won’t quit on you as soon as it may have.

3. Maintain The Warranty

Many furnace warranties require an annual furnace inspection by a professional. Without this inspection, the warranty may be void and you may be unprotected.

4. Stay Safe

Furnaces release carbon monoxide (CO) through their exhaust as part of normal operations. Normally CO is vented through an exhaust pipe and out of your home, but it’s very difficult to tell if everything is working properly without a professional inspection. Exposure to CO is very dangerous and hard to detect.
