How Furnace Inspections Can Affect Your Warranty
With the arrival of autumn comes a slew of questions about heating systems and furnace inspections. In our moderate climate here in South Carolina, you may wonder if a furnace inspection is even necessary. After all, South Carolina is known for its mild winters.
But as anyone who lived here during last winter’s polar vortex days, just because our winters are generally mild doesn’t mean we don’t get wicked cold snaps. How will you know if you can trust your furnace should the weather grow colder than expected?
If you have an existing heating system and are wondering if you need it serviced this fall, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some questions to ask yourself to help determine if you truly need a furnace inspection before winter weather arrives.
- What does your manufacturer’s warranty say? Most warranties will not cover repairs that become necessary because the furnace is not being regularly maintained. Conducting yearly inspections is the best way to keep your system running strong and keep the warranty in effect.
- Is your furnace 10 years old or more? If so, yearly service is a must in order to keep your furnace running efficiently and flawlessly.
- Have you recently noticed strange odors or sounds coming from your furnace? These are possible signs of safety issues that require immediate repair to keep from worsening.
- How long has it been since your last furnace inspection? If it has been more than a year, you should definitely have one completed this fall to ensure your furnace’s reliability through the winter.
