With Labor Day in the books, summer is truly coming to an end here in Iowa. You have probably started to notice temperatures leveling out in the low 80s with night temperatures getting as low as the 50s. As enjoyable as this time of year is, it only means that the cold winter temperatures will follow. Right now is the perfect time of year to have your furnace serviced to ensure that it will be ready to go by the time winter rolls around. Not doing so could have you and your stuck in the cold at the worst time possible.

Your Furnace Can Put Your Home In Danger

Furnaces are essential in keeping a house warm, but can also put you and your family’s health at risk if not properly maintained. It’s important that furnace filters are replaced and that your furnace isn’t leaking anywhere. As an appliance that radiates heat from burning fuel, the emissions of a furnace unit can be toxic if it’s maintained with proper care. If you are unsure whether your system might have cracks or leaks, contact us today and we would love to help you out!

Your Furnace Could Be At Its End

How old is the furnace in your home? Do you know? Most people don’t, and a lot of the times they don’t realize that it could be coming close to the end of its lifetime. Furnaces have the potential to last up to 20 years, but the majority of them make it about 10-15 years before they start having heavy issues. If your furnace is over 10 years old, it might be time to consider a new one based on how many repairs you’ve needed. A brand new furnace can offset the prices that you would end up paying down the line just to service your existing one. Learn more about the right time for furnace repair and furnace repair.
