1.) How often should I have my furnace checked?
Annually! Being a gas appliance with high consumption of fuel, it should be tested annually for gas leaks, carbon monoxide and performance as well as cleaning the motors, burners, heat exchangers and check all parts and functions.
2.) When is the best time of year to clean my furnace?
The best time is mid-July to mid-October, however, February and March are also great as you can avoid the winter and summer rush.
3.) How often should I clean my ducts?
Industry standards for duct cleaning recommend cleaning your ducts every 5 years, depending on the home. If you have pets that shed then they need to be cleaned more often, 1-2 years.
4.) Can I clean my own furnace?
It would be very difficult to clean your furnace yourself without proper training, equipment, and expertise. Usually, Puget Sound homeowners miss the crucial parts of the cleaning and tuning process.
5.) When should I change my furnace?
Most home inspectors recommend every 14 years. Some landlords and homeowners who do no annual maintenance, or they don’t change filters monthly, we are seeing them needing a new furnace every 5-7 years. (Changing filters monthly and having annual inspections are important.)
