REASONS YOUR FURNACE SHOULD BE SERVICED REGULARLY
1. Prevents Your Energy Bill From Increasing:
A furnace that is struggling to run will ultimately require more energy to heat. Catching any issues before they arise allows your energy bill to remain constant rather than costing you more money.
2. Ensures the Furnace Unit Runs Smoothly:
A common issue with all Furnace units is an uneven amount of warm air circulating through your home. This can come down to something as simple as needing to clean the Furnace filter. A clogged filter reduces the amount of airflow from the unit and not cleaning the filter often enough can lead to further issues the longer it is left unattended. If this doesn’t fix the problem, the next step would be to replace the filter. Never underestimate how vital a clean and functional filter is to your Furnace.
3. Extends the Lifespan of Your Furnace Unit:
Furnaces that receive regular maintenance are proven to have a longer lifespan and less chance of a breakdown. This can also be critical to maintain certain warranty coverages on the furnace.
4. Maintains the Safety of Your Home or Business:
It is possible for a furnace to leak carbon monoxide if the heat exchanger is cracked. Regular maintenance to your furnace includes evaluating the heat exchanger to ensure the air you are breathing is and not putting anyone in danger.

COMMON FURNACE MALFUNCTIONS
DISCLAIMER: While some furnace fixes may be more straightforward than others, we do not advise that you attempt this work without a professional. Due to the nature of furnaces and the potential of gas line leaks, tampering with the unit can be extremely dangerous. Never store combustible materials near your furnace as this can create the chance of a fire or explosion.
Sterling Plumbing & Heating is here to help when your furnace gives out. However, we would like to offer you some helpful advice to prevent a furnace breakdown in the future:
HOW YOUR FURNACE IMPACTS ENERGY EFFICIENCY
As time goes on, it is common that a furnace can become less efficient. The good news is that the best way to avoid losing efficiency is to stay up to date with having the furnace serviced. This way, your energy bill should not increase due to a compromised furnace. At Sterling Plumbing & Heating, we recommend annual furnace maintenance to ensure that the unit is clean and free of any issues.
One key factor for a well run furnace is a clean air filter. A clean air filter is important for more than one reason. By replacing the filter monthly, the air quality in your home or business will improve significantly. Keep in mind that if you have pets, you may need to change your furnace air filter more frequently than someone who does not. Ultimately, your furnace has to work harder when the air filter is dirty. Therefore replacing the filter regularly is one of the best ways to maintain the efficiency of the furnace unit and your home or business.
Another factor that could contribute to poor furnace efficiency is ductwork leaks. If the ducts have leaks or poor connections, it will be difficult for the air to move through the furnace. A large portion of your energy usage will come from your heating system during the winter which is why these factors are important to consider.

BENEFITS OF A FURNACE RENTAL VS OWNING
Benefits of Renting
Benefits of Owning
Choosing to own your furnace can become an asset when selling your home or business. However, the cost upfront for the furnace unit, materials, and labour can be high due to high intensity of the installation. You will also be responsible for scheduling regular maintenance and for the costs that may arise from repairs through the lifespan of the furnace.
