How long does a furnace last? Not a question you want to be answered when it’s snowing outside. It is always ideal to fix your furnace and heating systems before the temperature drops in winter. Your heating system breaking down on you could be the worst-case scenario for you. It’s a lot harder to disconnect and connect pipes (especially water pipes) and fittings when it’s -30 C outside (and not a lot more inside). Moreover, it is quite expensive to get your furnace, or your heating systems repaired during the winter because of the general rise in demand. Hence, it is crucial for you to have your HVAC system serviced before it gets too cold to fix.
How long does a roof last? Most roofs are made of asphalt shingles. While these have a lifespan of 20 years, it is possible to have a few loose tiles or accumulation of mould under the tiles over time. It is important to check the attic for water leakages and the exterior part of the house for any brittle or broken tiles.
Your roof provides you with an indispensable defence against the cold, and hence you need to make sure that it is repaired well before the winter season sets in. The price to replace your roofing might be cheaper during the middle of winter, but because of the harsh weather, the job might not be perfectly done.
