How To Avoid Furnace Repair in Montana

Treat your gas-fired furnace well, and you can see years of maintenance-free use. Plumbing and heating contractor, Max Rivard cites neglect as one of the top five problems with furnaces and offers one simple way to avoid damaging your expensive furnace.

Smart Storage for Furnace Parts

A top tip for gas-fired furnace controls is location, location, location. "Propane and gas [furnaces] are efficient because of computerized gas controls," Rivard says, adding that problems arise because of the "very expensive and delicate controls that are usually kept in an environment that is not healthy for them." Ask your installer for advice on how to better protect your controls from the elements. Avoiding water, very low temperatures, and other extremes can extend the life of the appliance.

Preventative Furnace Maintenance

Montana winters are legendary. If you don't want to be stuck in the cold, be sure to spend the extra money on regular system checkups. Experts can check filters, nozzles, faulty controls, and more. Rivard charges $120 for a complete 2-hour cleaning with parts included; research local Montana professionals for price options near you.

Emergency Heater Repair

If the worst-case scenario happens and your gas-fired heater breaks down overnight, pause before picking up the phone. Rivard reports that many gas furnace parts need to be special ordered, which means you could pay a technician $100 or $200 for an after-hours furnace repair call without even seeing your furnace fixed that night.

In recent times, homeowners are becoming more conscious of how much heat is used because energy costs are taking a bigger bite out of our household budgets.
