The weather here in our area of the world is fairly consistent. Meaning, it’s fairly consistently cold! Therefore, our heaters pretty much need to be ready to work at a moment’s notice. The best way to ensure that your heater is always ready for whatever you ask of it is to schedule routine annual maintenance for the system—or more often if you’re using a heat pump system.
Of course, even with maintenance, a heater can and will experience repair needs and performance problems. This is especially true for aging heaters. But a furnace repair need doesn’t have to get you down for too long! If you know what signs to watch out for, you can get ahead of these issues before they grow into something much bigger and causes your heater to call it quits for good.
