Your furnace is one of the most important mechanical devices in your home but the reality is that it’s easy to forget because you expect it to ‘always run’, and might not think about the furnace until it stops functioning.
Thankfully, keeping a furnace in excellent running condition isn’t difficult especially if you know when you should have it serviced.
In this article, we will offer you several tips for when you should have your furnace serviced and what you can do to keep it always in optimal condition.
When To Get Your Furnace Serviced
Your furnace should be serviced at least two times per year, ideally in the spring and fall. Bi-annual maintenance will enable you to have peace of mind in knowing that your furnace is going to work the way that it should and it won’t break down when it gets cold.
Once you schedule an appointment to get your furnace serviced, the HVAC company will thoroughly examine and clean all of the parts inside your HVAC unit, light the pilot, test the heat exchanger and diagnose any repairs that may need to be made shortly.
Things You Can Do To Keep Your HVAC Running Smoothly
Besides getting your HVAC serviced at least twice per year, some of the things you can do to keep your running efficiently include changing your HVAC air filter at least every 3 months, vacuuming dust and dirt away from your furnace, replacing seals around doors/windows annually and checking your ductwork annually for holes or signs of infestation from rodents or other animals.
Applying one or all of these tips will keep your furnace running smoothly and eliminate downtime, especially during cold winter days.
