How Often Should You Get Your Heating System Checked?
There are a number of factors that determine how often you get your heating system checked, including climate, type of heating equipment, and the age of the system. Generally, an annual heating inspection is recommended to ensure that your system remains in good condition and lurking problems do not go unresolved for too long. The best time to get your HVAC system checked is before you use it. For example, with an air conditioning system, the best time to have it serviced is before the start of the warmer summer months. In the case of a heating system, the best time is around now, before the cold weather really takes hold.
