A furnace is an excellent system for anyone in the market for a new heater. For most homes, it makes the most sense to install. Although several other types of heating systems are available, a furnace is a sensible option if your already have a set of ducts. It keeps the whole home warm, and most units today are more efficient than those from decades ago.

Making a sudden repair to a heating system in the middle of January is a major pain point for so many homeowners. And yet, few people take the steps earlier in the year, when fall temperatures are just starting to cool down, to prevent heating repair so it’s not such an urgent problem. Wouldn’t it be nice to get through the winter worry-free this year?
While we cannot guarantee your heating system will not break down this year, we can tell you that the following steps can significantly reduce the chances that you’ll need an emergency heating repair later on. You just have to take these steps early in the season!
Your home air filter is in place for a reason. Yes, it can filter out particulate that could otherwise make you sick or have an effect on your allergies or asthma symptoms. However, that’s more a feature of modern air filters. Filters have been engineered for furnaces and air conditioners since the beginning of the 20th century, since without them, the system could be pummeled by debris as the blower fan sucks in air.
An air filter is there to protect your health and your investment. But when it gets too dirty, it’s not really helping you at all. This isn’t just due to health concerns. (In fact, the lack of air circulation may help to stop even more particles from circulating!) Rather, it’s because a dirty filter raises the cost of heating and cooling.
