How to Extend the Life of Your Furnace


A new heating system is a financial investment and will be responsible for keeping you and your family comfortable through many long, and sometimes harsh winters. To ensure you’re getting the most from your new furnace and to help extend its lifespan, ensure you choose a reputable brand, have it correctly installed, and keep up with regular maintenance.

Purchase a Reliable Brand
Not all furnaces are made equally. Some brands are known to have quality issues that can cause breakdowns or require replacement more frequently than other brands. Research different manufacturers and make sure you understand what is (and isn’t) covered in their warranties.

Use a Reputable Installer
Once you’ve chosen a quality furnace brand, make sure you put the same amount of time into picking the right installation company. The best furnace, incorrectly installed, can suffer from decreased efficiency, lower home comfort and even premature breakdowns. Don’t be afraid to ask about a company’s experience or ask if the technicians have been properly trained on how to install different furnace brands.

Perform Regular Maintenance
Once the furnace is installed, it needs to be professionally maintained every year. Having a technician inspect and clean the system can help improve efficiency and catch small problems before they turn into an expensive repair. It’s also important to note that you should be checking the furnace filter monthly and replacing as needed. Did you know that regular maintenance by a professional technician is required to keep most manufacturer warranties valid?
