How often should you do furnace inspection?

Regular Annual Furnace Inspection will extend the lifespan of your furnace and HVAC system

Every year before cold winter comes heating experts recommend to have professional Furnace Inspection done on your heating system to keep in good working condition and to prevent it from breaking when you need it the most. Annual Furnace Inspection not only will prolong the lifespan of the furnace but it will also help you save on energy and decrease health risks.

Benefits of Furnace Inspection

Many service calls in the winter are related to lack of furnace maintenance and could have been prevented of annual inspection was done. Some furnace issues can be a health hazard including carbon monoxide leakage due to a cracked heat exchanger and exhaust pipes. As a homeowner you cannot really detect a gas leak as natural gas is colourless and odorless. The only way to tell a gas leak is by having carbon monoxide detectors installed in your home or during the furnace inspection by a professional.

Not maintaining your furnace regularly can also cause it to run less efficiently whether you have gas, electric or even oil furnace. Furnace will work harder to get your home to a comfortable level and therefore increasing your energy bills.

Cost of Furnace Inspection

Annual Furnace maintenance can cost anywhere between $75 to $150 based on the HVAC contractor. If additional tuning up or part replacement is required additional charges will be discussed with you by the service technician. Some heating companies offer monthly protection plans that include parts and labour warranty as well as annual maintenance. These protection plans can vary from $10 to $40 per month based on the type of the plan you select and the service company. Most annual inspections include cleaning of the heating system that improves its efficiency and inspection of all the controls for safety reasons. Service technician will ensure that your furnace is operating to its best performance to keep your home comfortable.

Other Check up things include: checking of the thermostat settings, inspection of electrical connection, and the condensate drain, lubrication of moving parts, and checking system start up and shutdowns for proper operation.

Hiring Licensed HVAC Contractor

Heating system is one of the most complex systems in your home so hiring fully licensed and trained HVAC Contractor is important when scheduling your annul furnace inspection. Every HVAC technician must have TSSA (Technical Safety and Standards) and G2 (Gas Technician) licenses. DeMark Home Ontario team also suggests that every homeowner reads heating contractors reviews online prior to booking and inspection

Tips to Save Energy after furnace inspection

Annual inspection is important for proper furnace operation as it helps heating system to run smoothly. But as a homeowner you can also take few steps to ensure smooth equipment operations. Changing your furnace filter every 30 to 90 days is one of the most important steps as clogged filter will restrict the air flow and can even cause furnace shut downs.

Installing a programmable thermostat can also help you save up to 10 % on your energy bills. You can set temperature to be a little lower when you are not home and increase the settings before you get home fro work.


Annual Inspections are required not only for old furnace but for new ones as well if you want it last longer and operate efficiently. For more information on proper furnace maintenance or to schedule you annual inspection, call DeMark Home Ontario at 647-847-2998 or submit your request online.
