During the winter months, your furnace is under a lot of stress and pressure, so it requires a lot of maintenance and frequent repairs – maybe more than any other appliance in your San Antonio home. In order to keep your furnace in good condition and keep its lifespan as long as possible, the professionals at JB Heating & Air Conditioning recommend having a furnace inspection and tune-up at least once every year. With regular maintenance and proper care, a furnace can last for up to thirty years.
Still, regardless of how much maintenance your furnace receives, at some point it will inevitably need to be replaced. If it doesn’t receive the amount of attention it needs, that time could be after only ten or fifteen years. When you do need to have a furnace replacement, it’s important that you hire a professional you know you can trust with the work.

Furnace Repairs and Replacements
Once your furnace is around 15 years old, you’ll need to begin paying more attention to it.

Continuing to use your furnace when it has problems of any size will increase your heating costs, and will only cause more problems down the line. It’s highly important that you pay attention to any problems that arise and handle them immediately.
