What can I do to prevent unexpected issues with my furnace?

We recommend scheduling a maintenance appointment once a year, ideally before temperatures begin to drop. This will help prevent unexpected issues with your furnace.

Then, we will install the furnace for you with our furnace installation services.
Should I try to repair my furnace myself?
We do not recommend trying to repair your furnace yourself. Furnaces often pose combustion or gas-related safety hazards, which can put you at risk. Our technicians are highly trained in furnace repair, giving you the piece of mind that your furnace has been restored properly. At Anchor Mechanical, your family’s comfort and safety is our priority.
What causes a furnace to stop working?
The most common reason a furnace stops working is dirty air filters. Air filters may become blocked overtime by dust, dirt, hair, etc. The blockage may stop air flow causing the furnace to overheat and stop working.
How do you know if your furnace is dying?
There are three main signs that your furnace is dying or may die soon. The first is age. Furnaces have a 15-30 year lifespan. If your furnace is older than 15 and is starting to not function properly it may be a sign that it is dying. If you hear strange noises coming from your furnace, or notice that your heating bill is going up it may be a sign that your furnace is not working at its full capacity and may die soon.
What to do if the furnace stops working?
If your furnace stops working the first thing to do is to check and make sure that your thermostat is turned on. If the furnace is producing heat you can try to reset your home’s circuit breaker. If your furnace is not producing heat check its filter to see if it is blocked.
