As the holidays draw near, we start pulling out sweaters, mittens and all things cozy. In the midst of all the warmth and cozy is our furnace. Without it, the holidays would be pretty cold and bleak. It is important to keep your furnace maintained properly to ensure you have the warm home you are looking for this holiday season. Absolute P&M Services is here to talk about how often you should have your furnace to keep it in tip top shape.
Should I Get My Furnace Serviced Every Year?
When it comes to keeping your furnace properly maintained, there are a couple of factors that play a role in how frequently you need to have your furnace inspected. Obviously, the more you use your heating system, the more you are going to have to maintain it. Here is a breakdown of what you can expect depending on the climate that you live in.
– Cold Winters: If you live in an area that experiences severe weather and several inches to feet of snow each winter season, you will need to have your furnace inspected for issues more often. In this climate, expect to schedule a furnace inspection every 6 months. At the very least, you need to have it looked at once a year.
– Mild Winters: Some places may still get quite cold during the winter, but they don’t get the extreme snowstorms that other regions can expect. It is still going to be important to have your furnace maintained on an annual basis when you live somewhere that sees significant dips in temperature. You need to make sure that there isn’t a problem with a blocked chimney or flue as this can be dangerous to your home.
– No Winters: If you are lucky enough to not have a winter at all, you probably don’t rely much on your furnace. These areas will only be turning on their heating system a few times throughout the year when the temperature gets a slight chill in the air. If you only find that you use your heating system a couple times a year, you should plan on an inspection every 2-5 years to ensure things are still working as they should, and the dust and cobwebs are getting cleaned out.

If you time things right, you can have the AC as well as the heating systems inspected at the same time. You will want to wrap things up with your central AC from the summer months and get the furnace ready for the winter and vice versa. It can be a whole HVAC inspection and service.
