How to Avoid Emergency Furnace Repair

Your furnace breaks down in the middle of the night, and you ask yourself…”Is there anything I could have done to prevent this? How do I avoid this in the future?”

Like all mechanical devices, your furnace requires regular maintenance to ensure it continues to run smoothly and efficiently; this will save you money, and ensure that a small issue doesn’t become a larger problem down the road.

  • One of the best things a homeowner can do to ensure a properly running furnace is to change out the filter on a regular basis. HVAC professionals recommend that you replace your furnace filter every 90 days. More often if you live with pets, or someone in the house suffers from allergies. If you don’t remember how long it’s been since you’ve changed out your furnace filter, it’s definitely time. Modern, Smart or Wifi thermostats will often have a feature that can remind you when it’s time to replace your filter. When you are at the store, grab a two- or three-pack, and you’ll be set.
  • Schedule regular furnace maintenance from an reputable heating contractor. Your heating and AC system should be checked out at least once a year by a professional. At this time, our techs will clean and inspect parts that commonly malfunction – this includes the fan, air filter, pilot light, heat exchanger and more.
  • The life expectancy of a furnace is around 15 – 20 years – this can change dramatically based on how the furnace was installed, and whether the unit was maintained properly over the years. If your heating system is nearing the end of its life, it is time to schedule a consultation with one of our comfort experts. We can help you find the right heating system for your budget and needs.
