Why Spring Is the Perfect Time for a Furnace Inspection!
While after winter your furnace might be the last thing on your mind, it’s important to have your furnace inspected and tuned-up. It worked hard all winter and has most likely accumulated dust, grime, and dirt, so it’s best to have your furnace in good repair and ready to go for when the temperature starts dropping again next season.
It Worked Hard All Winter!
Spring is the perfect time to have your furnace inspected for signs of wear and tear that might have happened during winter. This means inspecting the air ducts for holes or clogged ducts, which could make your system inefficient or could leak carbon monoxide in your home. If only because the warmer weather will make it more comfortable for the inspection seen as the ductwork is often located in cooler areas of your house, like the basement or attic. It’s also essential for a professional to inspect the thermostat settings, electrical connections, and also (depending on your furnace type) to lubricate any moving parts to make sure your furnace is ready to go when you need it to!
Clean Up Your Ducts and Filters!
Another reason for you to have your furnace inspected and cleaned in spring is that its filters have probably accumulated dust, grime, and dirt from circulating in your home. Dirt is one of the furnace’s worst enemies, as it will lower your furnace’s efficiency and the quality of the indoor air. One important step to take when spring comes is to have your filters replaced or cleaned to keep your furnace running efficiently! It will not only help the air to flow more smoothly through the ducts, but also raise the quality of the air you breathe. Do this cleaning in the spring and have your furnace ready for the coming autumn.
Get It Ready for the Next Cold Season!
It’s always a good idea to have your furnace inspected and tuned-up after winter to ensure that it hasn’t been damaged and to make sure that it will be in good working order for the next autumn. To ensure this, you’ll need to have the furnace’s many systems inspected for leaks, blockages, rust, corrosion, or debris. You’ll need to have a professional do this tune-up, as it might require disassembling some parts of your furnace.
Once spring comes, your furnace probably won’t be at the top of your priorities. However, a spring inspection is actually something you should get into the habit of doing. You need make sure your furnace didn’t suffer any damages after having worked hard all winter. You also need to clean any dirt, dust, or grime that has accumulated in your air ducts and filter.
