I decided to contact an HVAC company near me so I could have a full service tune-up performed on the gas furnace.
When the gas furnace is maintained frequently, it has a much longer longevity and lifespan.
A furnace should last a decade or longer if it remains in good condition for many years. My family and I know how important it is to have a service tune-up performed and we have been doing this every year since we had a new gas furnace installed. Our previous furnace lasted long past its expiration date and that’s because we took care of it. The technician this year was very thorough and did a great job. I did not recognize his face, but he definitely covered every single part of the heating system. He cleaned all of their events and checked the ductwork. He also replaced the air filter and checked for dust, dirt, and debris that may have been trapped in the system. He calibrated our thermostat to make sure that it was working properly and replaced the batteries. The technician also cleaned the blower and made sure that there were no loose pieces inside of the machine. When the guy was done servicing the furnace, he handed me a list that included all of the items that he serviced or checked. I read through the list and there were a lot of parts that I did not recognize. It certainly seemed like the guy did a good job with the service. He was thorough and took more than an hour to clean and investigate the furnace.
