How to Avoid a Furnace Emergency This Winter

January 5, 2021

With the cold weather here in the greater Columbia, SC area, we are relying on our heating systems now more than we have been in the past months. As the temperatures continue to drop and get colder, you don’t want to experience a furnace emergency or a complete heating system breakdown in the middle of winter. This can be not only extremely uncomfortable, but also quite stressful for you and your family. To help you prevent a furnace emergency from happening this winter, here are a few things you should do:

Avoid Performing Repairs on Your Own

If you think that your furnace is in need of a quick repair, it’s important to call in the experts for help. Your heating and air conditioning system is a complex system which requires a licensed and experienced professional to inspect it. Avoid performing any kind of furnace repair on your own. Without proper training, you could easily perform the repair incorrectly which could result in your furnace being out more than intended and increase the cost of the repair needed. 

Replace Your Furnace Sooner Rather Than Later

Like most things, your furnace has a certain life expectancy. If your furnace has been heating your home for over 12-15 years, then it is probably time to consider replacing it. When your furnace gets old, they become less and less energy efficient. In addition, they become more likely to breakdown. If you are unsure how much longer your furnace can last, contact the professionals here at Air Necessities Heating and Cooling to take a look at it.

During a maintenance check-up, a professional HVAC technician will inspect your furnace and find and fix any small issues before they turn into larger ones.
