Furnace Maintenance

Our Heating Experts Keep Your Home Warm When it Counts!

When fall starts to settle in and you know cooler temperatures are on the way, it’s time to start thinking about furnace repair and service. Proper maintenance will help make sure that your furnace is up to the task of keeping you and your loved ones warm this winter. Before that familiar chill hits, take some time to inspect your heating system to make sure it is working properly. Here are some tips from our heating repair experts at Ceige, a nationally trusted brand with a reputation for putting homeowners first.

Breathe Easy & Call Aire Serv for Furnace Maintenance

Ensuring that your furnace is working properly is the key to keeping energy costs low.

Here are some steps you should take every fall to make sure your furnace is running as efficiently and as safely as possible:

Vents
Check vents to make sure they are clear. Blockages will cause the furnace to run inefficiently.
Thermostat
Make sure the thermostat is working properly.
Filter
Change the air filter at the start of the heating season, and then every month when your furnace is in use.
Gas
Check for gas leaks. If you notice the smell of gas, or any of the connections look worn or damaged, call a professional for repair before you start up the furnace.
Electricity
If you have an electronic air cleaner, clean the air filter every other month.
Calendar
Schedule an annual tune-up with your local Ceige HVAC.

What Is an Annual Furnace Tune-Up?

Aside from the maintenance you do on your furnace, a comprehensive annual cleaning and safety inspection performed by a professional is the best way to ensure safe and effective operation for the entire heating season.

At Ceige HVAC, we offer a Total Comfort Tune-Up that includes:

Inspection of all of the furnace’s components
A professional cleaning
Adjustment of any necessary controls
A complete safety check to ensure safe and reliable operation for the entire season
How Do I Know When It’s Time to Replace My Furnace?

Knowing whether to repair or replace your furnace is not always an easy decision to make.

Consider the following factors to help make your decision easier:

Age –
The average lifespan of a furnace is 15 years depending on their location and how much the furnace is used. In cold climates, it may be 7 years; in warmer climates, it could be 15. How close is your furnace to the end of its life cycle?
Safety first –
If it is a safety hazard to continue using the furnace, replace it.
Cost –
Get a quote for the cost of the repair and a quote for the cost of replacement, including installation charges, to make an accurate comparison.
Efficiency –
Are your energy bills creeping up every year in spite of annual furnace repair and service? A new furnace could save you a lot of money in energy costs

If your furnace is more than 10 years old and the cost of the repair would cover a significant part of the cost of a new system, it may be time to consider replacing your system. Factor in the energy savings you’ll enjoy with a new furnace when determining the cost of a new system, as upfront expenses may be recouped over time.
