Should I repair or replace my air conditioner or furnace? Take this short quiz, and get answers from the experts at Home Comfort Experts! We’ll also offer some tips and advice on what you can do to keep your furnace and air conditioning systems operating at peak efficiency.

In the Indiana and Michigan area, we have seven months in the heating season: October through April. That works out to 210 heating days and 5040 heating hours. Each hour your furnace runs, it turns on and off an average of four times, so over the heating season, your furnace cycles on and off 20,160 times. If your furnace is 10 years old, it has cycled on an off 201,600 times. Just like mileage on your car, you need regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly. And sometimes, you need new equipment.
