Furnaces typically last about 15 years, but with proper maintenance, you can expect to lengthen the lifespan of yours by 5 to 10 years. Furnaces, like other major appliances, require regular maintenance to ensure efficiency and longevity. Many homeowners are surprised to learn that their furnace requires annual tune-ups by licensed professionals. When coupling annual tune-ups with regular filter replacement, you can expect your furnace to take care of you long after the 15 year mark.
Did you know that many furnace manufacturers require annual tune-ups by licensed professionals in order to keep your furnace’s warranty valid? Most people are shocked to learn this, so if you examine your warranty paperwork, you may find a disclaimer in the fine print that clearly states you must keep up with regular routine maintenance.
Annual tune-ups, when compared to major furnace repair or furnace replacement, are a much better choice financially. Additionally, with annual furnace tune-ups, technicians slowly become familiar with the intricacies of your furnace and can detect minor problems over the years, take corrective action, and avoid failure.
At Access Heating and Air LLC, we encourage everyone to have their furnace tuned-up annually to increase its efficiency, performance, and longevity. Don’t be fooled into thinking that no news is good news when it comes to your furnace. Neglected furnaces are prone to premature lifecycles, inefficient operation, and they can produce deadly carbon monoxide, posing serious risks to you and your family.
