Last week, we helped you shut down your AC and protect it from the winter. Now you need to make sure that your heating will work when you need it. Furnaces rarely see much use outside of the winter months, so yours will likely be dusty when you bring it out. If you want to ensure it’ll work this winter, you should call One Hour Heating & AC to schedule a furnace inspection. When we fix it up, you can be sure you’ll be able to stay warm during the winter.

Here are five reasons you should get us to help you with a furnace inspection before winter hits:

Make informed decisions about your furnace’s health

How old and healthy is your furnace? If you’re unsure, getting a furnace inspection can be useful. Our work can help you gauge your furnace’s health and give you the information you need to decide if you need a replacement. We suggest scheduling your inspection as soon as possible so you’ll have more time to shop around if you want a replacement.

Stop dangerous gas leaks

If you own a gas furnace, you should be especially concerned about your furnace’s health. They’re capable of leaking carbon monoxide or flammable gasses if they get damaged or worn down. Carbon monoxide is an odorless and tasteless gas that can cause fatal poisonings, while flammable gasses can start a house fire.

Better energy efficiency

Statistics from the Department of Energy suggest that furnace owners have about half of their energy consumption come from using the furnace. However, regular inspections are capable of lowering this percentage by replacing old parts and correcting other issues. Well-maintained furnaces can use up to 30% less energy.

Save money, stop breakdowns

The average furnace inspection costs a lot less than replacing or repairing your furnace. Furnace inspections allow us to fix or prevent any issues that might damage or ruin your furnace. Getting an inspection will save you money in the long run and help you avoid losing out on heat during the winter.

Maximize your furnace’s lifespan

Furnace inspections are key to keeping your furnace running at its best. Furnaces that don’t get inspections are less energy-efficient and will generally die out quicker. Neglected furnaces are also more likely to have breakdowns that require costly repairs.
