Lise -- I wish I said yes but I can't(I just won't) lie about this.   It's rare(I can't recall when I did) turn on my furnace -- no risk of carbon monoxide as it's electric but(serioiusly) the practice of having it serviced annually is very wise.

WOW, good thing you had it cleaned and not experienced carbon monoxide poisoning!       I had mine cleaned in the spring when my HVAC tech was available.

WOW, thank goodness you had that checked!!  Also good reminder to check the carbon monoxide detector that should be placed nearby.

What is this furnace thing you speak of?

December in San Diego, CA:

Ah yes but seriously, this really is December here....

But Yes, our inspectors recommend it as an annual service (roof too)...even here.

Yes...Spring and Fall my HVAC guys come out and inspect the units so my A/C gets ready for the summer and furnace gets ready for the winter.
