Many homeowners wonder if a furnace inspection, aka furnace maintenance, will really help them out. Here at Bell Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electrical, we are firm believers that maintenance is one of the best things you can do for your furnace.
Here’s what you need to know about Denver furnace maintenance, furnace inspections, and regular furnace service so you can make the best possible decisions for your home, your heating, and your family.

Still not convinced? Here are some times when it’s a really good idea to call for a furnace tune- up.
If your furnace is under warranty, pull that document out and check it. Some specify that the furnace needs to be maintained by a licensed professional once (or, occasionally, twice!) each year.
Most of these documents will say something to the effect that damage caused by improper maintenance won’t be covered. While this doesn’t necessarily mean that skipping maintenance visits would void the warranty, that is probably not something that you want to risk, given the relatively low cost of furnace inspection against the high cost of furnace repairs and replacement.
Even if your furnace runs well and heats your home effectively, a furnace tune-up appointment could help you save money in the long run. In order to spend as little as possible on electricity, you need to have a more energy efficient furnace to heat your home. Even if your unit is older, it might be able to run more efficiently than it does right now. The following problems can cause furnace inefficiency, and we would detect all of them during regularly scheduled maintenance:
There are a few reasons why you might choose to have a furnace inspection each year, in addition to requirements in your warranty. These include:
Having your furnace tuned up may seem like hassle, or even an expensive luxury, but it can save you big in the long run. You can end up saving money on energy bills by having a more efficient unit, save money by preventing costly furnace repairs, as well as time and stress spent trying to get your furnace working again in the middle of a long, cold winter.
