Mr. Duct - When to Have Your Furnace Checked

As we transition from season to season, it's easy to overlook the quiet machinery working tirelessly to keep our homes comfortable. One such often-overlooked hero is our furnace. But when is the right time to have your furnace checked, and what signs should you look out for? And, perhaps most importantly, why should Mr. Duct be the one you call for all your heating concerns?

When to Check Your Furnace?

There are two main reasons to check your furnace. One is for a yearly inspection and the other is if you experience warning signs that something could be wrong in the first place. Being mindful of these two examples is essential to keeping your furnace running smoothly.

It's advisable to have your furnace checked annually before the winter season kicks in, usually during the fall. This ensures that your furnace is in peak condition before the temperatures drop.

This is considered simple preventative maintenance. By keeping a yearly schedule, you can be ready for any major problems that can be caught early, keeping your system running at optimal efficiency, and ensuring a longer lifespan. This will save you money in the long run and spare you from hassles and expenses down the road. Even a cleaning for the furnace can go a long way in preventative maintenance.

This will also allow you to keep peace of mind - knowing that your furnace is working properly when it needs to be for the colder months will allow you to rest assured that the heating system will not leave you in the cold when it’s needed the most.

If your furnace is making strange noises, if you notice a spike in your energy bills, or if it's not heating your home as efficiently as it once did, these are clear indicators that it's time for a check-up or potential repairs.
