How to Take Care of Your Furnace

Reliable Heating Services in Tennessee

Your furnace is responsible for keeping your loved ones comfortable through the colder months. In order to protect this major investment, there are a few things you need to do.

To take good care of your furnace, you should:

  • Keep a close eye on your filters and change them when they are dirty (every 1-3 months)
  • Regularly inspect your outside unit and clear away any debris blocking it
  • Make sure all the vents in your home are open and free of anything blocking the path of airflow
  • Ensure flammable objects are kept away from your furnace
  • Schedule professional heating maintenance once a year, in the early fall

When you join our maintenance plan, you can expect an annual tune-up, front-of-the-line service, 20% off repair services, and more.

How Long Does A Furnace Last?

How long a furnace lasts depends on a number of factors. On average, a furnace typically lasts 15-20 years, but there are a couple of things to consider when calculating a furnace's lifespan.

Some factors to consider when it comes to the longevity of a furnace include:

  • The make of the equipment
  • The model of the equipment
  • The quality of the furnace's installation
  • The frequency of furnace maintenance.

The factor that plays the biggest role in the lifespan of a furnace is maintenance. In fact, a well-maintained furnace can last anywhere between 15 and 30 years! An unmaintained system, on the other hand, typically won’t last more than 15 years. If you are not sure how old your furnace is, you can look at the manufacturer's serial number inside your furnace's cover. All you have to do is contact a heating professional that can give you that information, provided that you have the serial number handy.
