The furnace in your home definitely isn’t the star player in your HVAC system when you live in the Vegas Valley. However, it is still important that your furnace is ready to go for those couple of months that we end up needing it. This can leave homeowners wondering how often they need to have their furnace inspected. Air Supply Air Conditioning & Heating is here to talk about what people can expect depending on their climate and other factors as far as furnace inspections go.
Are Annual Furnace Inspections Really Necessary?
While for most homeowners, we would recommend they have their furnace inspected and properly maintained every year to ensure there aren’t any repairs that are going unnoticed or hidden dangers in the heating system in your home, there are bare minimums that everyone should be aware of as far as furnace inspections are concerned. This has a lot to do with the climate that you live in.
– Cold Winters: Someone that lives in a climate where snow is falling for several months out of the year will need to have their furnace inspected more often. It is recommended that in these climates, the furnace is inspected 2 times a year. Once in the fall and once in the spring.
– Mild Winters: If you still see a drop in the temperature but aren’t buried in snow all year long, your heating system won’t need as much maintenance. You should still have it looked at on an annual basis to ensure it is all working well.
– No Winter: In areas like Las Vegas, where we don’t get a winter at all, you can stretch your furnace inspections out further if there aren’t any issues to deal with but most people still like to get a yearly inspection to detect and address any problems early before they escalate.
Dual AC & Furnace HVAC Inspections
The best way to ensure both your AC system is ready to be done for the season and your furnace is ready to go is to have your entire HVAC system inspected at the same time. This can kill two birds with one stone. Fall is the best time to have both of these systems thoroughly inspected for any issues that may arise.

So back to the question as to how often you should have your heating system inspected. You should have it done annually no matter where you live as it is a working appliance that needs to be properly maintained to ensure it works as it should. Without these important inspections there could be issues that are left unattended and then end up costing you much more in the long run.
