One of the most commonly overlooked areas of any Colorado building is the furnace and its connected ducting system. This crucial, complicated piece of machinery is responsible for keeping your home or business comfortable throughout the coldest times of the year.
As important as your furnace is, it’s not always obvious when it may need routine maintenance. Many homes or business owners will wait until they start noticing issues first before taking any action to have maintenance performed.
The reality is that there are many parts of a furnace that are designed to be either replaced or serviced throughout the lifetime of the unit. These can include filters, heat pumps, boilers, motors, and more. So, when is it time to schedule maintenance for your furnace? Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to have your furnace inspected by a qualified HVAC technician at least once a year. This is because many maintenance inspections can reveal potential issues before they become costly problems down the line.
