Oil furnaces – Should be serviced yearly!
Gas furnaces – Manufacturers recommend having gas furnace’s serviced yearly primarily to check for carbon monoxide. You also need to replace/clean your filters four times a year if you have air conditioning but if the gas furnace only supply’s heat then the filters should be change twice a year.
