When you purchase a new furnace, you want to get as many years as possible out of it. Most furnaces should last at least 15 years before they need to be replaced. When it comes to your furnace, they require a certain amount of maintenance and vigilance that will help to extend their life. Hal Mechanical is here to share some tips that will help you get the most out of your furnace.
Schedule Annual Furnace Maintenance
There is no better way to extend the life of your furnace than regular scheduled maintenance with a professional HVAC company. It is best to have annual maintenance done before your turn your heat on in the late fall and winter. That way, if there are any issues, they can be resolved before colder temperatures hit.
Clean or Change Your Air Filter
Your filter on your furnace plays a key role in keeping your furnace running properly. This will keep dirt and debris from making their way into your furnace and causing problems. When your filter isn’t clean and filled with debris, your furnace isn’t getting the airflow it needs to operate. This leaves your furnace working harder than is necessary and wearing it out sooner than a furnace with a clean filter. The filter should be replaced every month when the furnace is constantly running.
HVAC Air Duct Sealing of Leaks
If there are any leaks in your duct work, they need to be repaired. You don’t want to lose warm or cool air in a faulty duct system. When you have leaking ducts, it requires your furnace to work much harder than it needs to in order to heat your home.
Clean Space Around Furnace
For your furnace to run properly, it needs to have a clean space to do so. You don’t want to have clutter surrounding your furnace because this will restrict air flow and can be dangerous as well. Make sure the room your furnace is in is a clean one.
Upgrade to Programmable Thermostat
When you upgrade you thermostat to a programmable one, you will not only extend the life of your furnace, but you will also see a decent saving in energy costs. You will be able to accurately set the temperature of your home. Not only that, but you can program it to keep your home cooler while you are away and give your furnace a much needed rest from constantly running.
