How to Get the Most Life out of Your Furnace

Regular Furnace Maintenance

Typically, a furnace should last around 15 years. By following the tips below, you can extend its life to the maximum of 20 years and get the most efficiency out of it without any major problems along the way. 

If you’ve recently purchased a new furnace, register the warranty as soon as possible. In the event something does go wrong, it will be covered. Nowadays, registration can be done online as well as over the phone. Some manufacturers impose a deadline on when you can register, so be sure to check the specific conditions of your warranty.      

Don’t put off or skip your yearly furnace maintenance. Just because a unit is newer, or you’ve never had any problems in the past with an older unit, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be given the once over. In fact, proof of regular maintenance is a condition for keeping the warranty valid. Fall is the best time of year to schedule an inspection. A qualified technician from a furnace repair service will be able to tell you quickly and for certain if anything needs to be cleaned or replaced.  

Something you can do yourself is either replace the filter or, if it’s a style that’s washable, clean it. Wear and tear on a furnace’s moving parts really starts to take hold when the airflow through the machine is reduced. The more dust and debris clogging the filter, the dirtier the interior gets and the blower has to work harder to push warm air through the ducts. Along with this, vacuum out the compartment where the blower fan is located.  

If your thermostat is more than 10 years old, think about replacing it with a new, programmable thermostat. If the current thermostat is malfunctioning, it could put unnecessary strain on the furnace by causing it to run too much.
