A homeowner can never be too diligent when it comes to the maintenance of their home. Every component should receive consistent attention to ensure all is well and that any necessary service is performed. Some inspections can be done by the homeowner, such as checking the plumbing fixtures for leaks. However, others should be handled by a professional. A heating inspection is an example. You are unlikely to know what you are looking at or how to tell if something needs attention. The only question then is when the best times are to schedule a heating inspection.
- Immediately- If it has been more than a year since you’ve scheduled a heating inspection, schedule one ASAP.
- Annually in the fall- While once a year is recommended and it could be any time of the year, having it done in the early fall is the best time to schedule a heating inspection so you can have peace of mind it will come on when you need it and that your first heating bill will be as low as possible. In addition, an inspection and maintenance visit are necessary to catch any small problems before they can advance.
- Before closing on a home- If you are about to purchase a home, it is recommended to have a full home inspection. However, the typical general home inspection doesn’t have each system inspected by someone who specializes in that component. A heating inspection can tell you more about the condition of the HVAC system.
