Your furnace is the heart of your home essentially making it possible for your space to be habitable in the coldest of winter nights. That being said, it is important to keep it inspected and to make sure that you are following proper furnace care instructions. So how often should you have your furnace inspected?
The simple answer is that your furnace is going to have a typical service schedule that is unique to the brand and type of furnace that you are dealing with. This means that you can quickly and easily find the service schedule that is advised and just follow that. This is going to be the easiest for those that quite honestly, have no idea about how to take care of their furnace.
For those that do not have a furnace that has a service schedule that has been recommended by the manufacturer, once every two to five years is a safe bet. If you live in an area where your furnace is used often or where there is pollution that might change the way your furnace works, you might want to have an inspection more often. In general, every two to five years is a safe schedule.
If you want to be very thorough, you can have it inspected once a year, generally before winter or before spring in order to account for the change of season. In most cases, if there is something wrong with your furnace you are going to know long before your scheduled maintenance pops up. This means that you should be paying attention to your furnace for signs that you need sooner maintenance.
Listen for odd sounds, pay attention to odd smells, spikes in your energy bill, or any other issue that might pop up. If you do have an issue with your furnace, quickly contact a repair company to get the issue resolved before major damage occurs.
