What You Should Know About Your Home Furnace
Your furnace is one of the most important appliances in your Winnipeg home. During the colder months of the year (which, in Winnipeg, is the majority of the months of the year!), your furnace is responsible for keeping your home comfortable and safe.
At Lynn's Heating, Cooling, Sewer & Drain we provide furnace repair and furnace installation in Winnipeg. Here are some of the facts that our experienced furnace technicians feel every homeowner should know about their furnace.
- Your furnace needs to be the right size for your home
One of the most important considerations that homeowners need to make when looking for a new furnace is how large that furnace should be. It is definitely not true that the larger the furnace, the better it will be. A furnace that is too large will make certain areas of your home uncomfortably warm before others are properly heated, while, as you would expect, a furnace that is too small will not provide enough heat. A technician will consider your home's square footage and insulation before recommending a furnace for you.
- Professional furnace maintenance and repair is a must
Having your furnace regularly maintained and repaired when need be by a professional furnace technician will ensure that it runs safely and that you get the most use out of it. Regular maintenance helps to prevent dangerous buildup, as well as the risk of carbon monoxide leaks. If you ever notice strange sounds and strange smells coming from your furnace, then your furnace likely needs repairs. Calling for furnace repair in Winnipeg when you notice a minor problem with your furnace is the best method of preventing larger and more costly issues.
- Your furnace will eventually need to be replaced
Once a new furnace is up and running, it really doesn't require much more thought other than to occasionally schedule some maintenance. However, after about 15-20 years most furnaces have reached the end of their usable life. By this you will likely notice that your furnace gives you more trouble and requires more repairs than it used to. Rather than continuing to pay for expensive repairs, you should start considering new furnace installation in Winnipeg. Even if your furnace has hit the 15-year mark and is still operating fine, you should begin looking around so that you find a new furnace that meets your needs and your budget before your old one gives out.
