Yearly furnace inspections are a little bit like yearly physical examinations – they are really easy to overlook but are also really helpful and useful in terms of enhancing long term health.
It’s that first step of making the appointment that seems to be the stopping point for many people – whether it’s to see your doctor for your yearly physical or to schedule a trained furnace inspection company to come out and inspect your furnace.
Seeing the value of an annual furnace inspection is the first step to understanding its full value. Here are a few things to consider that make the value of a yearly furnace inspection far more clearer:
- Annual Furnace Inspections are Recommended by All Manufacturers
The companies that manufacturer furnaces, furnace parts, and furnace accessories almost always recommend yearly inspections. Some recommend an inspection every other year for newer furnace, but most recommend inspections every year for furnaces that are 5 years old or older.
- Furnace Warranties
Some furnace warranties have verbiage that indicates that the warranty is invalid if certain maintenance steps are not followed. In these cases, improper maintenance can be cited as a reason to only partially pay or to deny payment on warranty-related issues.
- Annual Inspections Stop Problems Before They Occur – and Will Save You Money in the Long Run
Manufacturers realize that annual inspections lead to detecting small problems before they become big (and expensive) problems. They also allow the homeowner to be preemptive in terms of changing out parts that are likely to wear out in the upcoming year. Translation: you save money on unnecessary service charges and the inconvenience of a furnace breaking down during the cold winter months – or at an especially inconvenient time, like around the holidays or on weekends, when service calls are far more costly.
