Don’t Skip Fall Furnace Maintenance
Trust us, fall furnace maintenance is important. An annual check-up for your furnace is one sure way to keep your furnace running properly well into it’s twilight years. Over time your furnace and system can wear down and some components can even break down if they’re not properly maintained. Some of these components can be easily replaced, but there are times where carbon monoxide leaks can be a real threat. This is one of the worst things that can happen in your home. Carbon monoxide is one of the most dangerous gases that can be released into your home if your furnace isn’t properly maintained.
Your furnace will typically last between 15 and 20 years, and with proper maintenance and repairs as necessary it should operate reliably for the majority of those years. As all furnaces age their efficiency drops, so if you have an older furnace it’s important to talk to your HVAC technician when it makes sense to replace it for a new high-efficiency furnace.
When the time comes that fall furnace maintenance doesn’t make sense anymore it’s time to find a high efficiency replacement. High-efficiency furnaces have the ability to save you a lot of money each month and over the life of your furnace they will pay or their extra up-front cost. In the long-term and new efficient furnace makes the most sense, but talk to your Novel Care technician for the best advice about which model and size are best for your home.
