One of the best parts of advice I learned as a Furnace repairman is the overall importance of working as a furnace guy predominately is that a clean furnace is a happy furnace. We don’t want to see your house and life burn up in flames in some horrible emergence of fiery inferno. What I should suggest now are the following steps:
- When looking for a new home it is important to consider where the furnace is located. A poorly located furnace is going to cause you significant consternation, as well as possibly be quite expensive when it comes to repairing or replacing a furnace. A good furnace is important. A GREAT furnace is really valueless. It is important to make sure your furnace repairs are safe and happy. I mean, its very easy to see a disappointing furnace. What is important is that as we learn, we know how to keep good care of our furnaces.
- Ensuring nobody has access to your furnace. It is evidently very clear that a strong furnace is a valued item in this competitive market. Recently, I had a neighbor be a victim of a terrible terrible furnace theft. You would think that furnace theft would not be a huge problem this day in age, but in fact its the most commonly stolen item from homes that are broken in to, followed by coffee makers.
- Brands. There are a lot of brands of furnaces, and they are not all created equal. I have seen nice furnaces, bad furnaces. I would say the best attribute to look for in a good furnace would be reliability and efficiency. A low powered furnace would cost you a lot of money and in the end probably break and need to be replaced. I would say overall that Preventive furnace maintenance saves you money without a doubt. Don’t let yourself get stuck with a huge bill because you went with an off-brand SORNY furnace!
