It is hard to overstate the importance of your furnace. Just spend a few days inside your home without it and you’ll see why. Although we work hard to get the prices as low as possible for you, installations, repairs, and general check-ups will take their toll on your wallet over time if you don’t put some effort in to preserving your heating system. That’s why we want to let you know how to extend the life of your furnace. Take these tips to heart.
Get a general check-up every Fall
You’d be surprised at how far this can go. It might seem like you are spending extra money on maintenance, but in reality you are saving money. A check-up from our trained technicians will not only make sure that your unit is running at peak efficiency, but it will also ensure that any minor issues are discovered before they become major ones. Do it in the Fall to make sure that it is ready for the Winter.
Clean or replace the filters
If the filters on your unit are not properly maintained, it’s going to cause problems down the road. It might cause the furnace to misfire, it might cause it blow cold air, or it could cause it to shut down all together. Making sure that all of the dirt and dust is off of them will make sure that it can function properly throughout the winter. If they are beyond repair, then replace them.
Make its life easier
Making it work harder is a sure-fire way to make it break down sooner. You can do yourself a big favour by installing a programmable thermostat and making sure that it isn’t in use while you don’t need it. Make sure to close all the windows and seal any leaks. The less work it has to do, the longer it will last. A few fixes will go a long way.
