3 Ways to Save Money on Furnace Repairs

Saving Money on Furnace Repair

Most homeowners know that a furnace is a major investment. Homeowners who are unaware of this have probably not purchased a furnace yet. Furnaces will vary in terms of their lifespan depending on several factors. However, they generally last between 15 and 18 years. Homeowners who have diligently kept up with regular furnace maintenance can expect it to last upwards of 25 years. When it comes to furnaces, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. At The Weather Changers, we believe there are 3 ways homeowners can save money on furnace repairs.

1. Change the Filter - The furnace manufacturer will recommend the cycle for replacing your air filter, however it is usually a good rule of thumb to change the filter monthly. When you change the filters religiously, you can get away with buying relatively inexpensive air filters, as long as they are the correct size. 

2. Schedule Annual Tune-Ups - Homeowners are usually stunned when they learn that their furnace’s warranty is usually predicated on annual inspections and tune-ups conducted by licensed professionals. The additional benefits of annual tune-ups include: the technician can identify small problems before they become major, a well-maintained furnace runs more efficiently than neglected furnaces which impacts energy bills, and a properly maintained furnace will allow for the air in the home to be much cleaner. Tune-ups are inexpensive, especially when compared to the major problems that can arise from neglected furnaces.

3. Set a Lower Temperature - If you reduce the temperature setting on the thermostat by just 2-3 degrees, you will not only save money on energy costs, you will also prolong the life of your furnace, thereby warding off expensive replacement cost.
