Furnace Services

A home isn’t really a home unless it’s comfortable. Without your furnace, your home could soon turn into a freezer. Are you and your furnace ready for a Minnesota winter? Get your furnace inspected and cleaned now by Standard Heating & Air Conditioning. The time to fix or replace your furnace is before the winter sets in.

Are Emergency Services Available?

Standard Heating offers emergency heating service starting in October through April. This means we are available to service your home outside of our normal hours of 7 am - 7 pm. Be sure to think of us if you are ever in an emergency repair situation!

Check Furnace Filter

This is one task that you can do yourself. Cleaning the filters can help lower your energy bills. The standard 1-inch furnace filter should be changed every month or when visibly dirty. Changing filters also helps keeps up the air quality in your home. Keep a list of when the filter was changed near the heater to help remind you when to change it. Some homeowners will find a sheet metal pocket in the lower plenum on top of the furnace with manuals, instructions, and warranty information. This is a good place to put your filter-changing schedule.

Cleaning the Furnace Interior

Over time, your furnace will assemble a remarkable collection of debris. This dirt and grit can interfere with the furnace’s efficiency. This interior cleaning is included in our furnace tune-up. If you are interested in getting on scheduled, contact us today!

Furnace Safety

It’s important that nothing touches the sides or the pipes of your furnace. These areas get hot and anything touching it could cause a fire. Before fall, make sure everything is at least six inches away from your system. You also want to make a clear path to the furnace and around your heater to make maintenance tasks much easier.

How Old Is Your Furnace?

In Minnesota, most systems last 15 years. Consider having it replaced before cold weather strikes, especially if it was on the frits last season. Modern furnaces are far more efficient than ones made over 10 years ago.
