How often does a furnace need to be serviced?

If you’re like many people, you probably don’t spend too much time thinking about your furnace unless a problem arises. In fact, you may simply assume that the furnace will continue to function for a long time without interference. However, the truth is that you should actually get regular service on your furnace.

Yearly Maintenance

Scheduling furnace maintenance once a year for your furnace is a good general rule of thumb to follow. You may want to schedule this maintenance in the early fall before the cold season starts so that the furnace is working at full capacity on chilly days. Keep in mind that many homeowners choose to book maintenance for this time, so be sure to call for an appointment with one of our team members before the first cold snap.

Warranty Requirements

You should also check your warranty to see if the document contains any rules about service. For example, your contract might say that you need to have service on the furnace performed twice a year in order to avoid voiding the agreement. A voided warranty could mean that you have to pay for expensive repairs out of pocket.

When Problems Arise

If you notice that your furnace is making strange sounds, emitting unusual odors or otherwise not functioning as usual, book a furnace repair appointment with our technicians. Instead of allowing the problem to grow worse and possibly dangerous and more expensive, have the problem fixed as soon as possible.
