The chill of winter is in the air… and suddenly, you realize that you need winter furnace maintenance, service, repair, and installation in Sammamish. Why? Because you don’t want to be stuck in the cold this winter, especially when temperatures dip below freezing in the evenings. You never know when something unexpected will roll around, like a massive snow or ice storm, and you’ll thank your lucky stars for your home’s heating system.
Regular maintenance of your furnace keeps it in tip-top function for years to come, allowing you to reap the benefits of good upkeep and care. Early detection of issues can be easily remedied, saving you heaps of time and money while affording you peace of mind that you’ll have heat throughout the cold winter.
On average, your heating system should be checked annually. While annual maintenance is best scheduled before it gets cold, such as in the springtime or autumn, you can schedule your furnace inspection any time. Technicians will check to ensure no malfunctions with the air filters, pilot light, fans, and heat exchanger.
What’s the Most Common Problem with a Home Furnace?
The most common problem with a home furnace is an easy fix – a clogged or dirty filter. Most people forget to change their furnace filters once a month (every 30 days), making their furnace junked up with dust and air gunk. Blockages can prevent proper airflow, leading to larger, more expensive problems if left unsolved for too long.
How Long Does a Furnace Inspection Take to Complete?
Typically, furnace tune-ups and inspections can last one to two hours, depending on the ease of access, any issues with the furnace, and the furnace’s age. The average furnace lasts from 15 to 30 years, so age plays a factor in any problems you might experience.
