In The Know
UP TO THE MINUTE NEWS
Maintenance and repair services need to be performed regularly in order for furnaces to work efficiently. Many homeowners wait for major issues to occur with their heating system before they decide to call in a professional for a repair or maintenance service. Always keep an eye on the following:
Your Furnace is Getting Old
Furnaces can last for 20 to 30 years. To take care of your unit well and make it last longer, conduct regular maintenance and tune-ups and take preventative measures.
High Energy Bills
A system that is not maintained properly or is working inefficiently can result in an abnormal rise in terms of your energy consumption and ultimately the bottom line on your utility bill. If you experience a sudden increase in costs, have your heating system checked immediately.
Clues That Your System May Need Some Maintenance
Check your heating system once a week in order to identify any visible defects such as rust or visible deterioration of the equipment. Suspicious smells are also a cause for concern, especially if you are making use of a gas furnace. Listen for any uncommon noises as this is a sign that all is not well. Early detection allows you the chance to repair minor damages rather than the usually resultant large and costly ones.

Use Cold Water in the Garbage Disposal
Did you ever notice how we talk about the garbage disposal a lot? That’s because we get a lot of calls about clogged garbage disposals around Thanksgiving and Christmas, and often the problems are preventable. In addition to knowing what you should and shouldn’t throw in there be sure to run cold water during and for 30-60 seconds after you put food in the garbage disposal. Hot water will solidify any grease poured down the drain by someone-who-isn’t-you (because you know better).
Do a Toilet Check
There’s no getting around it: Your ceramic throne is going to get a lot of use around the holidays. Give it a check-up. Inspect the handle, the lift arm, and chain, the flapper and break the news to it gently. Speaking of gentle, a gentle reminder to guests in the form of a polite sign about what not to put in the toilet might save you some plumbing headaches and ensure your guests save face. Keep some supplies in plain sight, too, like extra toilet paper and a plunger.
Install Drain Catchers
If you’re hosting overnight guests, they’re going to log shower time. With more showers comes more hair down the drain. Installing a drain catcher, an easy-to-find and affordable item will help prevent clogs.
Get the Water Heater Ready
More showers also mean more hot water usage. Encourage guests to put a bit of space between shower sessions in order to give the water heater tank a breather. The extra time will allow it to recover. Consider turning up the heater (no more than 120 degree Fahrenheit) while guests are there so that a little goes a long way. Lastly, if you’re due or overdue for water heater maintenance tend to that before the holidays to avoid hot water mishaps.
Show Guests Where the Main Water Valve Is
If plumbing trouble brews, shutting off the main water valve or appliance-specific emergency shutoff valve can minimize damage and help get you into problem-solving mode. Mark the valve so guests can quickly find it in a pinch, give them the spiel about shutting off the water (for example, when water rises in the toilet), and have them practice turning it off and on. This is a “hope you don’t have to use it” measure but a useful one should guests be home alone when a plumbing issue occurs. Green Apple Mechanical are the experts you can trust.

Most of us don’t even think about our furnaces until they are not working. But with the proper care and knowledge about your system, yours could keep your family happy and warm for many winters to come.
Here are a few things you might not know about your home’s heating system:
1) Furnaces are the most common heat-source in American homes
Furnaces heat a building by sending conditioned air through air ducts that run through the floor, walls, or ceiling. They are powered by gas, electricity, oil, or a combination because they’re the most economical, natural gas-powered furnaces are the most popular.
2) They have three main components:
- A burner or heating element
- A heat exchanger
- A blower
Your furnace will have either a burner or a heating element depending on the type of heater you have burners for gas furnaces (the most popular), heating elements for electric.
The exchanger’s function is to separate the breathable air from the combustion gas. The blower then sends the conditioned, breathable air through the ductwork and into the various rooms of the building.
3) Furnaces are nothing new
This type of heating system has been around for centuries. The Roman empire was the first known culture to use a warm-air system for heat in public places and large homes. This system, called a hypocaust worked by heating air with fire in an open space below the floor and sending it through passages into the rooms above. It could only be used in stone or brick homes and was incredibly dangerous due to the potential for fire or suffocation. Thankfully, furnaces today are much safer for use in homes. Following the Romans were monks who used furnaces to heat the running rivers to stay warm in their monasteries.
(Fun fact: the word “furnace” comes from the Greek term “fornax,” meaning “oven.”)
4) They can live long, healthy lives
There are many factors to take into account including preventative maintenance when determining how long a furnace will last. On average, conventional furnaces last 18-25 years while high-efficiency furnaces have a slightly shorter life of 15-20 years.
If you are looking at replacing your old furnace, make sure you take into account the lifespan of the new unit as well as the yearly savings. High-efficiency units may not last quite as long as their conventional counterparts, but they can save you more on utility costs.
5) Your furnace’s installation is regulated by the government
That means both the local and federal governments. While the safety of furnaces has increased exorbitantly since the ancient Romans used them, there is still a level of danger involved. If not installed or maintained properly, it could cause many problems including fire from a faulty burner.
This is why you should always have a certified Green Apple Mechanical professional do the installation rather than try to do it yourself. Not only can the lifespan of the unit decrease, but it can cause unnecessary problems for the period of time it is in use. Green Apple Mechanical NJ are the experts you can trust.
