Why They Don't Make Furnaces Like They Used To

How many times have you heard the phrase, “They don’t make them like they used to”? In this video, we go over why that’s true for furnaces. We also discuss the importance of keeping a clean air filter and if it's okay to close vents in empty rooms.

To heat our homes, we pump gas into a metal cabinet and we light it on fire. That metal cabinet is the furnace. If everything is working the way it should, your furnace can keep you comfortable for 15 years or more. And modern units can do that while keeping you much safer.

There are some things you can do to help your furnace last those 15 years. The first is checking your air filter. A clean air filter protects your furnace from dust while allowing enough airflow for it to work. Keeping your furnace clean and your air vents open can help with the same thing.

If your furnace does start to give you trouble, there are a few steps you can take. The first is to get the maintenance done. Regular maintenance keeps your system working and makes it easier to spot problems. If that doesn’t solve your issues, your next consideration could be repairing things. As long as the parts are still available for your furnace, a skilled technician can fix almost any unit. After looking through repair options, you can always look at replacing your old unit with a new one.
