The winter months in Colorado can involve beautifully sunny weather, but the outdoor temperatures can still be cold. Maintaining your home in the middle of Colorado winters involves having heat for your home, condo or apartment. Even if the heat is turned low, keeping pipes from freezing requires having a source of heat so the air temperature surrounding the pipes doesn’t dip below freezing and affect the pipes. Heating is also necessary for living, not just comfort.  It is required by law for landlords to provide a reliable and safe source of heat for tenants. This means the furnace must function properly, without gas leaks, and provides heated air for tenants. Heating repairs must be completed in a timely manner and cannot be put off because of safety hazards.

Making sure the work is performed correctly and effectively is key to regular maintenance. Changing a furnace filter can help the efficiency of the furnace throughout the winter. It can also help limit the amount of dust and particles that circulate through your home. Furnaces last between 15 and 20 years and maintaining them throughout that time is critical to the amount of time they last. Parts can wear out over time and affect how the furnace functions. It can also make a difference in if the furnace has a gas leak that can turn devastating.
