Is Your Furnace Winter Ready? | VideoAmy Fox | 10/16/2012
Montana-Dakota Utilities recommends checking your furnace filter and vent regularly. They also say the area around your furnace should be clean.
While furnace technology is improving, it`s always better to play it safe.
"Most of the problems that we would find that would create a dangerous situation is if somebody would bypass some of the controls and just to keep the furnace running. Those controls are there for a reason and that`s to make sure everything is safe,Ē said Kippís Heating and Air Inc. President Kipp Jemson.
Jemson says the average furnace lasts 15-20 years.
