Heating Specialists in El Paso, TX
When was the last time you thought about your home furnace? For many people, it’s a case of out of sight, out of mind. But your furnace works hard to keep you comfortable. Give some thought to replacing and repairing your furnace now, before it becomes a problem.
How to Know if You Need a New Furnace
There are a few easy ways to know if you need a new furnace. If you bought your furnace, how long ago did you make the purchase? The average age of a furnace is 16 to 20 years. If yours is approaching that, it might be time to think about a replacement. If the furnace came with the place, check to see if there is a pilot light, which is a sure-fire sign that it’s an older model. If the furnace starts making noises (pings, rattling, popping sounds), that’s another sign to start looking for new furnaces.
Common Types of Furnace Repair
Sometimes, you can perform a little maintenance instead of replacing the entire unit. Every year (or, at least, every other year) as the summer turns to fall, hire an expert to come out and give your furnace a tune-up. Our Empire Refrigeration technicians can also perform in-home estimates if any further work is needed.
How to Maintain Your Furnace
If you want to avoid needless repairs and keep your furnace running longer than the average lifespan, a little care goes a long way. Chances are there’s a maintenance guide on the inside door to your furnace’s electrical panel or elsewhere. Follow those steps. Be sure to change your air filter regularly, ideally on a monthly basis.
