3 Reasons You Should Schedule a Furnace Inspection Immediately, West Haven, Connecticut

If you are one of the many people in the United States who rely on an oil heat system to stay warm during the winter months, it’s important to speak with your HVAC contractor about getting an annual furnace inspection. According to the heating experts at Apple Oil in West Haven, CT, neglecting your regular furnace tuneup can shorten the life span of your system, cause it to heat your home less efficiently, and even invalidate your warranty. 

3 Benefits of an Annual Furnace Inspection

1. Safety

When you use an oil heating system, your furnace burns oil to produce heat to warm your home. This process is meticulously managed and maintained to avoid fire or safety hazards. A faulty furnace can lead to gas issues, causing dangerous carbon monoxide to leak into your home. Talk with your HVAC contractor about getting a carbon monoxide detector. This way, if there is an issue, you can contact them right away.

2. Efficiency 

furnaceGetting an annual furnace inspection can improve your energy efficiency, which can reduce your electric bills and your carbon footprint. Your HVAC contractor can remove dust and dirt particles that can compromise your furnace’s performance. Regular cleaning and maintenance of these parts can also increase the life span of your system.

3. Airflow

If you don’t have proper airflow, your house may not receive as much heat as it should. In addition, the dirt and dust pushed through the air could cause upper respiratory and sinus infections. Restricted airflow can also damage your system, resulting in expensive repairs.

An important point to remember is that if your furnace is under a manufacturer’s warranty, it’s critical to get an annual inspection. This warranty can easily become invalidated if your system is not properly maintained.
