Annual Furnace Maintenance or Service
Getting an annual preventive maintenance on your furnace is one of the most important things you can do to prolong its life. Service on your furnace is designed around a planned course of action. Yearly inspections of your equipment help to restore the reliability that your peace of mind deserves. Restoring reliability within your electrical, plumbing, heating, or cooling systems is done by inspecting and replacing, if necessary, worn components before they actually fail.
Being proactive in the care and maintenance of your equipment can save you money down the road, especially if your furnace, for example, were to fail in the late hours of a January night. Annual Preventive Maintenance of your equipment is one of the most important things you can do for your home and peace of mind.

There are a number of things you can do to improve the efficiency of your present heating system. Among them:
- Change filters regularly – Dirty filters are the most common cause of heating-system inefficiency—and the easiest to fix. Dirty filters impede airflow, causing your system to work more for less heat. When your filters are replaced regularly, more heated air can flow through the system and get delivered to your living spaces.
- Insulate your heating ducts – Heating ducts are metal and so will radiate a good deal of heat into the surrounding airspace before it gets to the living spaces where you want it. Wrap them with duct insulation wherever they are exposed. This reduces the stray heat radiation and reduces leaks at seams and joints.
- Keep wall- and floor-vents clear – Do not trap heated air behind drapes or furniture by obstructing your vents with them.
- Install a programmable thermostat – Set it for 78° F to heat or cool your home 30 minutes before you get there. Set it for 85° F when you are away. Doing so can help you save 10-to-20 percent on your annual energy bill.
However, if your furnace is more than 10-to-15 years old, or your boiler more than 20 years, then a new heating system will be at least 30 percent more efficient and pay for itself within 5-to-10 years. Among furnaces we recommend and install Lennox.
