A well-maintained heater can mean the difference between your furnace keeping your home warm year after year and being forced to replace your furnace prematurely, possibly costing you thousands of dollars.
Just like it’s important to have our cars inspected yearly and our teeth cleaned regularly, preventative heater maintenance is vital in ensuring you get the most out of your unit. Neglecting to properly maintain your furnace can lead to poor performance, a shorter lifespan and higher energy bills. On average, the standard furnace has a lifespan of 15-20 years. One of the best ways to guarantee that your unit goes the distance is by having the due diligence in scheduling at least an annual furnace inspection.
