As the winter months approach, you can expect your furnace to be on more often. But, before you’re heavily dependent on it, make sure you schedule a professional furnace inspection. These inspections are a great way to ensure that your HVAC system is in good health and is ready to heat your home throughout the winter.
- Ensure Safety
Like any appliance you have around the home, your furnace should be inspected for safe operation after lying dormant for many months. Your HVAC inspector will look for a number of issues, including the safety of each furnace component, the health of gas valves and igniters, the condition of the flue pipes and duct system, and the functioning of electrical components.
- Maintain Your System
During the inspection, your HVAC technician will perform basic maintenance tasks to enhance comfort, minimize the chance of furnace breakdowns, and increase energy efficiency. This service includes lubricating motor bearings, replacing fan belts, and changing your air filter. HVAC inspections are also a good opportunity for you to talk to your HVAC technician about the overall health of your furnace. He’ll be able to provide expert advice on your furnace’s life expectancy and whether or not you should consider an upgrade.
- Prevent Carbon Monoxide Exposure
Without proper care, furnaces may produce deadly carbon monoxide gas, which is odorless and colorless. Your HVAC inspector will test your home for carbon monoxide emissions and make the necessary repairs to keep your family safe.
