To ensure that your gas furnace operates safely and reliably, it’s important to maintain your furnace by cleaning it regularly and scheduling inspections. Maintenance should be scheduled for the early fall to ensure that the furnace is ready to go once the cold weather sets in. It’s important to read over the owner’s manual for your gas furnace to know how to maintain your model properly. When scheduling a full service on your furnace, hire a licensed gas contractor who is experienced at inspecting and servicing gas appliances.
