Solved: How Often to Have Your Furnace Serviced

Furnace maintenance in Las Cruces, NM

To get the most from your furnace and to keep it running efficiently, it needs periodic servicing. Discover how often you should plan to service your furnace for preventive maintenance and when to call for repairs.

Routine Preventive Service

Preventive service, also called routine maintenance or a furnace tune-up, is designed to keep your unit running properly. The industry recommendation is to get annual preventive care for all furnaces.

A technician goes through a vast checklist to improve your furnace’s performance. They’ll start by cleaning the vents and system. They’ll check and tighten mounting hardware and electrical connections. They check your circulating fan, including balancing the fan wheel and lubricating the bearings, if needed.

Anytime a component works ineffectively in your furnace, the entire system will work harder. If left long enough, this can cause other components to wear more quickly, leading to more extensive repairs. By catching small issues during maintenance, you can prevent furnace breakdowns and help the system last longer. Before leaving, the technician will run system tests to ensure everything cycles correctly.

Repair Service

Your furnace will need periodic repairs as it ages and components wear out. Whether you discover the issue or it’s uncovered during preventive maintenance, it’s important to repair it quickly.

Leaving a problem unaddressed allows it to grow into a major repair issue. Signs that you should call for furnace repair service include:

  • Lack of warm air
  • Weak airflow from vents
  • Unusual noises
  • Bad odors
  • Uneven heating
  • Climbing energy bills
