What Happens When You Skip a Furnace Inspection

What Happens When You Skip a Furnace Inspection

Think hard — when was the last time you had your furnace inspected? While we’re hoping it was within the last six months, there’s definitely a chance that it’s been a lot longer. Before you go brushing that off, you may want to know what happens when you skip a furnace inspection, especially this late in the game.

Inaccurate Temperatures

As time goes on and your furnace gets older, it may get out of sync with your thermostat and cause inaccurate temperature reading. This can cost you a lot of wasting money when it comes to your utility bills. Whether it’s because it needs to be reset or because there’s a computer error, a faulty thermostat can be a big pain in the neck. Regular furnace inspections can spot any problems with your thermostat early.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

Every day, your furnace collects dust and other particles in its air filters and ductwork. If you skip a furnace inspection, you may also forget to change your filters and all that dust can end up traveling through your home when your furnace cycles on.

A Broken Furnace

If there’s a small problem with your furnace, regular inspections will give your HVAC technician a chance to spot those issues and correct them before they get worse. If you skip a furnace inspection, your furnace could end up breaking down completely because those issues weren’t found and got worse over time.
