It is important to keep the area around the furnace free of debris, dirt, and any miscellaneous items. Making sure no storage items are in the area will also help keep the equipment more accessible for repairs or an annual inspection.

If your heater needs frequent repairs, is 15 years or older, or cannot warm your home properly, we advise you replace it. When a heater or HVAC system is older, it can’t operate as effectively and may end up costing you more money than it should.
