The ideal time to get your Furnace inspected is before the cold weather hits or after a full season of use –since most of the maintenance is based upon the issues that homeowners witness while using.
People think Furnace inspection is confined to flipping the Thermostat and cleaning or replacing the filters, but it involves a thorough and detailed inspection where a technician dives deep into inspecting all potential issues and resolves it before the neglected furnace costs thousands of dollars for repairs. The article covers important Q&A’s for furnace tune-up.

Why is it essential to have regular furnace tune-ups?

Very much like a car, if you don’t put serious consideration, the functionality of the car gets disturbed and many things tend to break down. Whenever you oil change a car, it prolongs the life of the vehicle and enhances the functionality. Furnace tuning also works on the same principle.
Furnace tune-up takes about 60 to 70 minutes to complete. No matter, if your furnace works perfectly, taking time out for the inspection, helps to save money and time in the long run. People often have a perception that if they put a new furnace at the home, then getting it inspected or maintained does not remain necessary. The truth is, regular maintenance preserves the longevity and maintains an extended manufacturer’s warranty.  Poor maintenance is the ultimate cause of the early replacement of the furnace. Furnace life expectancy can be between 10 to 15 years while the regular inspection tends to lengthen the duration.
Burning fuel in the furnace produces heat, and homeowners should ensure the system works efficiently. A minor problem can potentiate the gas leakage which can be life-threatening. Carbon monoxide leakage is dangerous. Having regular tune-ups can detect these safety and health risks.
