Have you had your furnace inspected recently? In this video, you will learn why furnace inspections are so important.
Heaters are important, but they can be dangerous. If your heater is not maintained, you have the potential risk of carbon monoxide entering your home.
This is a controlled fire in your home and should be inspected every year. The furnace manufacturers all recommend that you have this annual inspection done and often have language in the warranties that state that if regular maintenance is not done, they will not cover the damage to the unit. This can leave you in the cold and with a pretty hefty bill when you need the heating. A furnace inspection is the assessment of an industrial or residential furnace’s condition, primarily done to identify repair and maintenance needs. Operators, property owners, and landlords can hire a professional furnace inspector or choose to perform inspections and maintenance checks by themselves. During an inspection, you need the air filter checked. The air filter should be clean to optimize air flow. Check key components of the parts of the heater to have optimal performance. 80% of calls are due to a simple sensor being dirty. This means that keeping the furnace unit clean is important as well. Additionally, an inspector will run the system for 15-20 minutes to clean off any residue.
