The Importance of Furnace Maintenance
Poor system function and even breakdowns are far from random and often occur due to lack of service. Regular furnace maintenance will significantly reduce the chances of system malfunction or failure, especially at inopportune moments. Regular maintenance is essential to maintain all of the following:
- Factory warranties
- Maximum system performance
- Equipment lifespan
- Clean, mold-free and greater quality air in your home

We're also highly adept with older systems, and depending on the cause of the malfunction, we can usually get systems up and running that most other HVAC professionals might prefer to avoid.
How Often Does a Furnace Need Tune-Up?
Furnaces are dynamic, involving significant expansion/contraction of the heat exchanger, dust buildup on heating elements and sensors, and many other causes of performance-draining wear and tear. To help customers avoid basic issues, manufacturers generally recommend annual service, which we urge customers to secure before the cold months.
For optimal performance, scheduling service calls twice a year, at minimum, provides the best results and catches any minor issues that can lead to major repairs, especially if they persist throughout an entire cold season.
Is it Better to Replace or Repair my Furnace?
Most of the time, repairs are far less expensive, but older systems can push the limit on that critical dividing line between repair and replacement, while new systems can drive up the expense of replacement parts. A good rule of thumb is that when repair costs approach 30% of the replacement costs, it's better to replace it.
