3 Ways to Ensure Your Furnace Has a Longer Life

Replacing a furnace is a costly component of homeownership that we all try to avoid until it’s absolutely necessary. And the dreaded broken furnace always seems to happen at the most inconvenient times, such as late nights and weekends. Oakland Heating and Air LLC is available 24/7 for emergency support. Until the time comes to replace it, we will help you get as much usage as you can from your furnace. Here are three ways to help extend the lifespan of your home’s furnace.

Seasonal HVAC Maintenance

1. Get Seasonal HVAC Maintenance 

Seasonal maintenance calls for your HVAC system are akin to wellness checks with your doctor. Preventive maintenance ensures that your system will perform at optimal capacity, and can prevent costly repairs down the road. It’s always better to be proactive than reactive with your furnace to make it last. Oakland will thoroughly inspect your system to ensure it’s in top working order.

2. Don’t Delay Necessary Repairs

If an issue is identified during routine maintenance, or you suspect something is wrong with your furnace, then don’t delay in getting it repaired. At Oakland Heating and Air, we will give you an honest assessment of your furnace. Oftentimes, homeowners are told that their entire furnace needs to be replaced when it’s only a part that needs to be replaced. However, the longer you wait to schedule a service call, the likelihood that you will end up with further damage to your furnace increases.

3. Change Your Filters Regularly 

Filters collect all the dirt and other contaminants that would otherwise go through your HVAC system. You don’t want anything to escape through and cause damage to your unit. That’s why it’s important to change the filters every few months. When your furnace is in constant use during the winter months, you might even want to change them more often.
