Consequences of Neglecting an Annual Furnace Inspection

Posted on in Blog

You may have heard that an annual inspection is the best thing you can do to prolong the life of the furnace in your Lufkin or Nacogdoches, Texas home, but have continued to put it off anyway. Unfortunately, this will catch up with you eventually in the form of increased need for furnace repair or even a premature furnace installation. You can avoid both excessive furnace repair bills and furnace installation performed too soon by a small investment in annual maintenance. Most HVAC companies in Lufkin and Nacogdoches, or the surrounding area, offer customers the opportunity to purchase an annual maintenance agreement with the understanding that it includes inspection of their furnace and air conditioning unit.

By having your air conditioning unit serviced in the spring and arranging for minor furnace repair in the fall, both temperature control devices will be ready for the upcoming seasons of heavy use. When you sign up for a service agreement, an experienced technician will come to your home or business and go through several points of routine maintenance to make sure each unit is performing as it should. Your membership entitles you to minor furnace repair or air conditioning repair at no extra cost.

If major problems are uncovered and the technician recommends new furnace installation or AC installation, you may receive a discount on further services. You should also receive priority scheduling over other customers for your AC installation or furnace installation. Each HVAC provider has its own guidelines for its memberships, but discounts on parts, labor and future services are common. You may also have access to unpublished discounts on AC installation or air conditioning repair. If you do need new AC installation, your service technician may have information available about tax credits and dealer incentives to help make the purchase more affordable for you.
