Before the cold weather hits, experts recommend having a professional service your furnace to keep it in good running order and prevent it from conking out when you need it most.

HVAC experts say an annual furnace inspection and service will prolong the life of the system, save energy and decrease health risks.

“The manufacturers that built them all agree on this; you should get it serviced once [a year] for heating and once for cooling,” “Tuning it up and checking it out is definitely recommended. Much like a car, if you ignore it, a lot more things break. You [will] extend the life of it and help prevent major breakdowns.”

Benefits of a furnace inspection

Some HVAC experts say up to 75 percent of no-heat calls in the winter are related to a lack of maintenance. Left un serviced, a furnace can stop working suddenly, leaving your family in the cold.

It can also be a health hazard. Technicians say a furnace inspection can reveal carbon monoxide leaks, which are hard to detect because the gas is colorless and odorless. Carbon monoxide can lead to headaches, dizziness, nausea and even death. An estimated 500 people die each year, and 15,000 people are taken to emergency rooms, because of exposure.
