To keep your furnace running properly for as long as possible, it is important to have it cleaned and maintained at least once a year—preferably in the fall before the cold really settles in on the Greater Lehigh Valley area. A heating system can wear itself out quickly, especially if you don’t take the proper measures to ensure it stays in working condition. An annual checkup prevents your furnace from needing costly repairs and keeps you and your family safe from possible carbon monoxide emissions. To save even more money, sign up for a furnace maintenance agreement with Jack Lehr. You’ll extend the life of your HVAC equipment and receive several extra perks.
Depending on what kind of furnace is in your home, there are different steps in the maintenance process. But no matter the type, these three basic tasks are performed during regular checks to ensure your safety and prolong the life of your furnace:
Even if you schedule your furnace maintenance annually, there will come a day when you need to replace your system. Answer these questions (or talk to one of our professionals) to determine if it’s time to schedule replacement with a new, more energy efficient system.
Furnaces last on average between 16 and 20 years. It’s a good idea to replace your furnace before it breaks, so you’ll have time to shop around and make the best decision.
Furnaces become less efficient with age, especially if they haven’t been properly maintained throughout the years. If your energy bills are rising in cost, it may be time to purchase a new furnace.
During the last few years of their lives, furnaces tend to need the most repairs. It can save you time and energy to start investing in a new furnace instead of paying for costly repairs time and time again.
Old furnaces start making unusual noises when they get older. If you’ve heard any type of banging, popping or rattling coming from your furnace, you may want to start shopping for a new one.
If some of the rooms in your home are cold while others are hot, your furnace could be lacking the ability to distribute the air evenly throughout your entire living space.
If your home is feeling dry and dusty, your furnace could be failing to clean to air in your living space. It may be time to start shopping for a replacement furnace.
A yellow or flickering flame could be a sign of carbon monoxide emission. It’s important to keep carbon monoxide detectors in your home, close to the furnace room to be sure you and your family are safe. Learn more about furnace safety here.
