How to Increase Your Furnace'sFurnace's Longevity
The best way to avoid a furnace failure and keep your furnace efficient and long-lasting is to conduct routine maintenance. Just like changing your vehicle's oil every 3,000 miles keeps your car in tip-top shape, so too does regular maintenance keep your furnace running well. Here are some tips for maintaining your furnace.
- Arrange for annual inspection and tune-up from a licensed HVAC contractor. Do this in early fall before winter arrives, so your system is ready to go when the temperature drops.
- Change the filter regularly. Depending on usage and whether you have pets, you might change the filter every month for the best results.
- Put in a carbon monoxide filter to ensure the safety of your family.
- Inspect the furnace ducts for leaks and seal them if needed.
- Make sure the blower is free from obstructions.
