Furnaces are one of the most effective ways to stay warm, regardless of the temperature outside. But no matter the type of furnace you have, electric or gas-powered, you will occasionally run into repair needs, which can be inconvenient and time-consuming.

Here’s how you can reduce furnace repairs
- Schedule regular maintenance: For a furnace to keep operating at its best, and with as few malfunctions as possible, it needs to have a professional technician inspect, clean, and adjust it once a year. We recommend scheduling the maintenance for fall, before the winter arrives, but if you neglected to do it, it’s never too late to start. Maintenance is the number one way to prevent repairs: technicians will catch places where deterioration, misalignments, aging, and dirt contamination may cause repair needs, and they will take care of the problem before it becomes worse.
- Routinely replace the filter: No matter the power source of your furnace, it will have an air filter installed to prevent debris from entering the cabinet and causing damage. The filter will eventually clog with dust and dirt if left alone, which can lead to contamination inside the cabinet and broken components. Change the filter once a month during times when you regularly use the furnace and you should encounter fewer problems.
- Lessen stress on the furnace: The more a furnace works, the faster it ages. Avoid putting extra strain on your furnace by running it at lower settings. To keep the furnace from overworking and wearing down, settle on a lower temperature you can feel comfortable at, and put on an extra layer of clothing.
