We’ve written before about the importance of getting your furnace repaired as soon as you recognize that something is wrong with it. Since furnace problems are progressive, the faster you get them dealt with the more damage you will be able to prevent to the system. However, prompt repairs are not the only way (or even the best way) to maintain the health of your furnace. Let’s take a look at furnace maintenance, and why it is so important to maintaining a healthy system.
The biggest issue with just waiting around for a problem to show itself before calling for repairs is that you are already giving the problem time to develop and worsen before addressing it. That means that whatever the problem is, it will likely have time to damage the system long before you notice it and call for repairs. Preventive maintenance, on the other hand, gives your HVAC technician time to isolate and resolve possible issues before they can really cause trouble for the system. This may not seem like much, but if you schedule furnace maintenance at least once a year you can actually save a sizeable amount of money on furnace repairs.
When to Schedule It
Normally, you should schedule furnace maintenance during the fall. This ensures that your furnace is in the best possible condition before it goes through the most stress of the year. If you happen to have missed that window, however, it’s okay to schedule it during the winter. After all, it’s better to schedule furnace maintenance late than not to have it done at all. Just make sure that your furnace gets professional maintenance at least once a year.
