You’ve probably heard the recommendation that your furnace should be inspected annually. Furnace inspections make sure that your heating unit is running safely and efficiently, and they help you to catch small problems before they become big ones. So when is the best time to have a furnace inspection?
Early fall before heating season truly begins.
When the calendar flips to August, it seems that fall is suddenly racing toward us. Clothing stores are shouting about their “back to school” sales and specials, and soon you will be able to spot pumpkins and possibly a Christmas tree in the window of a department store. Even though August in Michigan is still filled with hot and muggy days, it is the month to think ahead to and prepare for fall. Buying school supplies and making sure your children have clothes that fit for the upcoming year is important, but it is also equally important to make sure that your home’s furnace is operating smoothly before the temperatures drop. So, once you flip the calendar to August, you should think about getting on the phone with your heating and cooling company.
According to the Farmers’ Almanac, Detroit typically sees its first frost of the season around October 17. That is right around the corner. Typically, once school starts families become very busy. You don’t want to find out about any furnace problems when it is already cold outside- you don’t have time for that! Scheduling a furnace inspection by a qualified HVAC professional for August or September ensures that your heating system should be ready to go when you need it. Plus, scheduling early helps you pick a date and time that is most convenient for you and your family.
