How Often Should A Furnace Be Serviced

The choice to live and retire in Bellingham WA is being made more frequently than you may think. Some make this their full time home and then there are the showbirds that show up for the best parts of the year. Those of us who live here year around know that the weather can quickly get chilly and stay that way for a majority of the year.

Lets get to the point of that. The life of an average furnace is 16-20 years. Furnaces over 12 years old are halfway past their expected lifespan and are more likely to develop problems that can become costly to repair. When a technician inspects your furnace for repair you can keep this tip in mind.

If the cost of repairs is more than half the value of your furnace, it’s time for a replacement.
