How long does a house furnace last?

Your average house furnace tends to last for on average 10-15 years. There’s something you need to do for it to last that long, though.

If you want your furnace to have a long healthy life (that’ll keep you warm), you need to schedule regular maintenance calls. Doing so will prevent breakdowns, reduce energy costs, and keep everything in perfect shape.

When is the right time for a furnace maintenance call?

The only way to accurately say when you should schedule a furnace maintenance call is to know when the last time you had one was. Simple as!

Now, if you don’t know when that was (because you weren’t the house owner then or you don’t remember), we highly recommend scheduling a furnace maintenance call as soon as possible.

A poorly maintained furnace can cause countless troubles, from high energy costs to carbon monoxide leaks.

Fortunately for all furnace owners, keeping things safe and running isn’t hard. If you’re in Seattle, all you have to do is call us.

How long can my furnace go without maintenance?

The average house furnace can last 10 to 15 years without any major problems. You can make sure that is the case with yours if you schedule a yearly furnace service call.

A yearly maintenance service costs little to nothing if you compare it to how much it’ll cost to repair a broken furnace. Not to mention how cold it’ll get before you decide to repair it.

You should do your part as well! Keeping filters clean, for example, is a must. Calling us when something goes wrong is also a must.
