Furnace technicians are busy with a lot of work, as temperatures are in the low to mid 20s and nighttime lows are hitting the single digits.
Peters Heating and Air Conditioning service technician Ryan Keller says they are getting quite a few more calls since the temperatures dropped. He says issues he's seen include dirty air filters, which could lead to your furnace not working.
Keller says some inconvenient breakdowns could have been avoided.
"To have your igniter checked, it should have a certain reading," Keller said. "And by getting your furnace serviced, you know if you're getting a weak igniter or not, and get ahead of a problem instead of having to spend a cold night with no heat."
Keller says to avoid bigger problems, you should change your air filter every 30 to 60 days. He say they average four to six service calls per technician a day.
