Are annual furnace inspections really necessary?

The best analogy is to go to the dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning; it's probably not necessary, but it's recommended. Some HVAC contractors recommend checking the newest furnaces every two years, but once they're more than 10 years old, have them serviced once a year. All furnace manufacturers recommend that annual maintenance be performed by a qualified technician. Most furnace warranties state that any damage to the unit due to lack of regular maintenance will not be covered by the warranty. Yes, annual heating inspections are really necessary.

They make your oven safer, cleaner and more cost-effective. They also establish a baseline for your HVAC technician to monitor. Think of it like having a dentist or family doctor. They take the time to get to know you and your needs to provide you with the best care.

Your technician establishes the same relationship and familiarity with your home, which improves the quality of service. A heating system needs maintenance every year to ensure high-quality performance for a long time. While most homeowners know that annual professional furnace maintenance is a must, many still don't.They forget to book an appointment or think it's an unnecessary expense. They may also feel that it's not necessary, as there are no visible signs of problems in their system.

However, it is this oversight that is likely to lead to several problems in the boiler in the future...
