Is a Heating System Inspection Really That Important?

Heating System InspectionThe fall and winter months are coming, and that means you’ll want your home’s heating system to be operating at full capacity.

It might seem warm now, but in the mountains of North Carolina, that can change really fast. It’s important to be prepared for the colder weather that comes with fall and winter.

Preparing your home for the cold is a lot like going on a long road trip. You wouldn’t want to leave before filling up your gas tank, checking your oil levels, and having an inspection done. Driving for long periods of time if your vehicle isn’t prepared can cause long-term damage.

Similarly, during the cold months when your furnace is working overtime to keep you and your family warm and cozy, it can malfunction or break down altogether if not cared for properly.

The majority of HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) manufacturers recommend having your heating system checked at least once per year. Many people play it safe by having two inspections, one at the beginning of fall and one at the beginning of spring. This ensures that your system keeps functioning at its best.

Your heating system is very complex and if not inspected and cared for by an HVAC professional, a lot can go wrong. Things like thermostat malfunctions, ignition control issues, and dirty air filters can all contribute to your furnace giving out during the cold months. An inspection can help uncover potential problems that can be avoided by simple furnace maintenance. However, if those potential issues are ignored, it can lead to the need for an entire heating system replacement. Simply cleaning your furnace can save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bill throughout its life by increasing your home heating systems efficiency.

Unless you have a lot of experience dealing with heating systems and know how to handle these problems, it is important that you have a heating system inspection done by a professional.
