As our thermometers dip, service calls go up for heating and air companies.
The average furnace now lasts up to 18 years.
The best way to protect that investment is by having a professional technician thoroughly check your furnace before every heating season.
Gene Clayton, president of Clayton Heating and Air Conditioning, said having a service contract goes a long way in preserving your furnace.
He said it keeps the furnace working properly and efficiently so you can keep the heat on this winter.
“You probably want to call down here, set something up to get on a service contract, so we call you so you don’t have that nuisance call in the middle of winter on a 10 o’clock Saturday day. At least we’re checking things before that would happen.”
A routine service call may take a week or two now that the colder weather is here and heating companies are busy.
