A typical furnace can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years. Older furnaces are likely only going to reach the lower end of the longevity spectrum. Newer models, because they function more efficiently and therefore don't need to work as hard, can fairly easily reach an operating life of two decades if maintained in good condition.
Before performing any sort of maintenance, make sure that you completely shut off the gas and the electricity to your furnace. Proper furnace maintenance and furnace cleaning in Edmonton consists of three main steps.
Step 1 - Regularly check and replace the furnace filte
The filter is one of the most important components of a properly functioning furnace. It is responsible for preventing any dirt, dust, or debris from entering the furnace, ensuring smooth and safe operation. You'll want to check the furnace filter roughly every three months and change the filter if it has accumulated a lot of debris. Your filter may need to be replaced more or less frequently depending on the type of filter you use and on how quickly it fills up.
Step 2 - Thoroughly clean and inspect the inside of your furnace
The inside of your furnace also requires regular cleaning to keep dust and debris from coating and impacting the function of your furnace's mechanical parts. The motor, blower, fan blades, pulleys, and belts all need to be vacuumed and inspected for any signs of damage. Furnace cleaning in Edmonton is best left up to professionals who have the tools and expertise to do it right.
Step 3 - Thoroughly clean your air ducts
Air ducts should be cleaned with a high powered vacuum. Modern Air & Water uses high powered vacuum trucks that extract your stale, dirty home air and replaces it with fresh clean outdoor air.
