While it seems like the cost of everything has been rising, the easiest way to extend the life of your furnace is through regular maintenance. Consider it to be an investment in your home’s most essential system. If your furnace is older or newer, you want it to last as long as possible. For a newer system, routine maintenance is usually a requirement for the warranty. And for older systems, having it maintained is crucial to ensuring it runs as long as possible.

A furnace that runs efficiently automatically uses less energy and costs less to keep your home at optimal heat levels.
