How Often Should You Schedule Electric Furnace Services?

Stephen Jabro

Electric furnaces are just as efficient as natural gas furnaces for heating homes. Comparatively, they use less energy and typically require less maintenance. However, that doesn’t mean electric furnaces don’t need any upkeep. Read this guide to know how often you should schedule electric furnace maintenance services.

Do Electric Furnaces Need Yearly Maintenance?

The simple answer is yes — all home heating systems need annual maintenance, including electric furnaces. There are two reasons why: reliability and energy efficiency.

Yearly maintenance keeps your system running smoothly. You never want to risk breakage during bad weather when you need it most. Therefore, routine maintenance keeps your electric furnace operating without issue. Also, regular maintenance strengthens the lifespan of your heater, meaning less risk of replacing it over time.

The other reason to service your electric furnace yearly is for energy efficiency. Broken electric furnaces use a lot more energy to heat your home. That equates to costly energy bills you won’t want to bear. Additionally, maintaining this type of furnace means less energy consumption, saving you more money in the long run.

Who to Call for Service?

Call a professional HVAC company if you need electric furnace repair and maintenance services. HVAC technicians have the tools, experience, and on-hand training to conduct annual furnace inspections to spot issues. This typically occurs in the heating elements with the blower fan and motor, pilot light, moving parts, and heat strips. The technician will then perform all necessary repairs to ensure it works properly.

They may also recalibrate the thermostat and change the air filter. Doing so allows the furnace to function during cold weather to keep you safe and warm.
