Furnace Inspection in Austin, TX, and Surrounding Areas
Austin isn’t known for subzero temperatures or several feet of snow each year. Residents, however, need a functioning heating system for chilly fall and winter nights.
For this reason, you should call Airsheen Services to have your furnace inspected a minimum of once each year. With this residential furnace inspection, you’ll have confidence your central heating will work when you need it.
Why Do I Need to Have My Furnace Inspected?
When you purchase a home, the mortgage lender typically requires a home inspection. However, the home inspector doesn’t evaluate the furnace fully. For instance, they don’t inspect the furnace burner.
They look at the age of the furnace and check it for visible signs of damage. As a result, you might find the system doesn’t function properly when you attempt to use it the first time.
In addition, the former owner may not provide information on any HVAC maintenance that was completed. You don’t have a complete picture of the system and how it functions. With a call to us at (512) 577-4776, you can have peace of mind knowing your central heating works as it should.
Signs You Need a Furnace Inspection
A furnace rarely fails overnight. Owners, however, often miss warning signs that alert them to the need for a furnace inspection. If you notice any of the following things with your furnace, call us. We will send a heating services specialist to your home to complete this inspection and identify any problems with the unit.
- No heat in the home
- The furnace turns on and off frequently
- The thermostat isn’t working
- The furnace makes loud banging noises
- The furnace emits a foul smell
- The home’s carbon monoxide detector activates
- Monthly energy bills are climbing without an accompanying increase in usage
- Weak airflow from the unit
- The furnace is 15 years of age or older
When we send a technician to your home, they inspect it to ensure it is safe to operate. They also evaluate the efficiency of the unit as part of the heating inspection. As part of this service, the technician completes an inspection of the furnace burner, evaluates the furnace filter, and more.
They also make recommendations on heating maintenance and how often you should call for a heating tune-up. The more you know about your furnace and how to care for it, the less you will pay for heating repairs over its lifespan.

When Should a Furnace Be Replaced?
Contact Airsheen Services when you need a furnace replacement company or are considering a heat pump replacement. Make this call when your furnace is 15 years of age or older, as it is at a higher risk of failure. Any signs of rust on the outside of the unit suggest you need our heating and cooling services because there is probably rust on the interior as well.
Frequent repairs indicate you should consider a furnace replacement. The same holds when your energy bills are rising but you aren’t using the furnace more often. If certain rooms of the home never reach the temperature you set the thermostat at, call us. It may be time to replace your furnace.
