Guide for Replacing Your Furnace

Now is the time to change out your furnace. In most homes across St. Paul and Minneapolis, a functional furnace installed in the property provides a source of reliable heat to the property’s occupants throughout the winter months.

FurnaceMany makes and models of furnaces are intended to be used with great results for years, although many furnace manufacturers recommend regular maintenance services on a furnace at the beginning of each cool weather season. This can help the system to function with greater efficiency and decrease the need for repairs throughout the lifespan of the equipment. Standard Heating & Air Conditioning offers maintenance services on all major makes and models of furnaces, and service can be scheduled as needed. However, when a system breaks down, many homeowners wonder if they need a furnace replacement rather than a repair. Standard Heating & Air Conditioning can provide local homeowners with honest answers and affordable rates on a variety of furnace services.
