I am not a real sizable fan of my furnace, but the heating plan is consistently a pain in the butt, but it is a truly needy category of heater; With a boiler you can basically ignore it for fifty years and it doesn’t matter, and sure you pay a high initial cost, however after that it requires basically no heating repair.
The only time the boiler needs to be updated is when modern parts are no longer made, but heated flooring is protected under there.
The Heating, Ventilation, and A/C supplier can’t even access it, but besides checking to make sure it still works, what is he going to do? A furnace requires yearly heating repair though. The furnace sucks up quite a bit of dust. Even replacing the air filter every month isn’t good enough. The dust gets into the inner workings and slows down the product. If you arne’t on it with cleaning, the dust could cause the plan to run longer, harder minutes. Teh furnace then would overheat and potentially catch on fire. If it overheats and has a cracked heat exchanger, that is almost worse, a damaged heat exchanger means it is time for a modern furnace. The heat exchanger is a absolutely pricey part, nearly as much as a modern furnace. It also releases carbon monoxide when cracked. This is a colorless gas that is poisonous to inhale! You could die from prolonged exposure. So to ensure my family is safe, I need to clean and care for this equipment consistently. It isn’t even the best category of furnace on the market either. It is more labor than it is worth.
