How often should a furnace get serviced?

A furnace should get serviced before the start of every heating season. This will ensure that it is in perfect working condition and running as efficiently as possible. Over time, furnaces can become clogged with dust and debris which negatively affect performance. Our professional technicians will clean your furnace and check for other potential issues that may occur throughout the heating season.

If you find that your furnace is not producing the level of heat it once did, or if it has stopped working altogether, then you will want to call a professional for service. We offer free estimates on repairs and new installations, so you can get one at any time. Once we check out your system, we’ll be able to let you know what services are needed.

In addition to standard maintenance and repairs, we can upgrade your current unit to newer systems that feature a variable-speed fan motor. This speeds up or slows down the rate at which air flows through your system based on need, improving efficiency.

Another common upgrade is a digital thermostat with a programmable start-up routine, drastically reducing the time it takes for your system to bring your home’s temperature up to where you prefer it.

How much does it cost to service a furnace?

The average cost for servicing a furnace is $150 – $300. These costs vary depending on the type of service needed and there are even some services that you can do yourself, therefore saving money. The size of your area and the local climate will also be a factor in determining how much it costs to maintain your central heating system, but there are also other costs that factor into it.

What is yearly maintenance on a furnace?

For furnaces, yearly maintenance is recommended to ensure that your unit operates at optimum performance levels without breakdowns. By scheduling an appointment with Masco & Sons, your local heating contractor, for a furnace inspection and tune-up, you can catch small issues before they turn into large problems. A yearly tune-up will include items including:

  • Replacing an air filter
  • Cleaning the condenser unit and coils
  • Lighting pilot lights
  • Inspecting various parts of the system to ensure they’re in good working order

How often should a furnace be replaced?

One of the top reasons you should consider a replacement is if your heater is not performing well or operating efficiently. If it seems like your furnace needs constant repairs and service, this could also be a sign that replacement is necessary. Your contractor will inspect and test the furnace and give you a complete report on what needs replacing and how much it would cost.

If your furnace is more than 15 years old, now is an excellent time to consider a replacement. Of course, many factors need to be taken into consideration when deciding whether or not replacement is necessary, such as the age of your furnace, operating costs, and brand of your furnace. But if you consider all these factors, a replacement could be the ideal choice for you and your heating needs.
