You're probably relying on your furnace quite a bit this season, as temperatures plummet and your home becomes more uncomfortable without it. Be aware, though, that the more you rely on your furnace to keep warm the more likely it will be to develop problems. Winter is the most stressful time of year for furnaces, and for that reason it's also the time with the most furnace problems. So, make sure that you have your furnace professionally checked to make sure that it's operating properly.
Waiting for your furnace to develop a problem before calling a professional won't save you money, as many homeowners tend to believe. Furnace problems tend to develop slowly and subtly. By the time you notice something wrong with the system, chances are that it's already been happening for a while. That means that it's too late to prevent much of the damage, which means you'll be paying more to repair it. The best way to keep your furnace in good condition is to catch issues with it as soon as possible. Preventive maintenance is the only way to consistently do that.
Scheduling preventive maintenance at least once a year allows your technician to find and fix issues with the system before they can develop too far. That lessens the amount of damage to the furnace over time, and can extend its lifespan by several years. Typically, the best time to schedule maintenance is during the fall, so that you can make sure that your furnace is in top condition before winter starts. Even if you miss that window, though, you should still make sure that your system gets preventive maintenance during the winter.
