When Should I Schedule Furnace Maintenance?

While furnace maintenance tune-ups can be performed at most any point during the year, the ideal time to schedule your tune-up from a Springfield, IL, heating contractor is in the late summer or early fall.

This allows the process to be completed before you even have to turn on the system for the season. It’s ready to roll at peak performance and efficiency levels when you need it. Plus, its condition has been inspected by a NATE-certified technician, and any issues corrected to prevent possible damage that may occur when a furnace operates with malfunctioning components in play.

It’s easy to let time slip away and forget to schedule your furnace maintenance visit during the ideal time of year. However, that’s not an excuse to skip it! Completing a furnace maintenance tune-up still delivers benefits no matter when it is performed during the year.

Your annual heater servicing only takes about an hour or two for a NATE-certified technician to complete. We offer convenient scheduling with plenty of options to fit your busy life. MB Heating & Cooling knows furnace tune-ups are critical to the health of your heating system and the comfort of your household—we make it easy because we don’t want you to go without heat.
