Are Annual Furnace Inspections Necessary?

Ideally, you will have your home’s furnace inspected at least once a year to ensure that it is in proper working condition. An inspection may make it possible to detect minor issues before they wreak havoc on both the furnace and your finances.

Inspect Every Aspect of the Furnace

It is unlikely that you have the tools or experience to conduct a thorough and comprehensive furnace inspection. A NATE-certified technician from Hoff Heating & AC in O’Fallon will ensure that there are no gas leaks, that the motors are clean, and that there are no physical defects that need to be fixed. Service plans may be available that make it easier to ensure that your furnace gets the attention it needs.

Ensure Your Furnace Is Efficient Throughout the Year

An annual furnace inspection will enable this component to work more efficiently during the colder winter months. Ultimately, your home will be warmer without necessarily increasing your heating bill. This is because you may be able to keep the thermostat at its current temperature or even lower it a few degrees. Furthermore, you will see even heating throughout your house, which means that you may not need space heaters or other products that use extra energy.

Make It Easier to Fix Issues

Generally speaking, it is easier and less expensive to fix furnace issues when they first become apparent. For instance, it may only cost a few dollars to clean or lubricate a motor or fan that is stuck or clogged. However, if you let the issue linger, it might be necessary to replace the motor or replace the entire furnace. Regular inspections let you learn about minor problems when they are still relatively easy and inexpensive to fix.

It is imperative that you have your furnace inspected by the folks at Hoff Heating & AC at least once a year. In addition to furnace inspections, we can repair and install air conditioner components in your home.
