Did you know?
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 a car with lots of mileage, you may need to replace your HVAC system to keep your home comfortable and safe.
