Furnace Safety

You’ve probably been running your furnace rather consistently for at least a couple months at this time. While you continue to use your furnace throughout these cold winter months, keep in mind these safety tips to keep you and your family safe and healthy!

  • The lifespan of a typical gas furnace is 15 to 20 years – give or take a few years. Maintenance and upkeep are necessary to ensure a long lifespan of your heating system.
  • The best thing you can do to ensure your furnace stays in working order is to schedule a maintenance check up once a year, done by a trained professional. A check up can do wonders for it!
  • Pay attention to your furnace. If something doesn’t smell or sound right – make sure to have it looked at.

If you need any assistance with the upkeep of your furnace or if you need a tune up (now $50 off until 12/31/12) call Gopher Heating at 952-890-3466 (Twin Cities) or (507) 665-3300 (Le Sueur, MN) and we’d be happy to help!

Stay Warm, Minneapolis!

There’s been an article  from The Daily Beast going viral here in Minnesota, and that’s because three Minnesotan cities are featured. The article, titled America’s 25 Coldest Cities, named Minneapolis the 16th coldest city in the United States. According to this article, we citizens of Minneapolis suffer through 35% of our days being snowy, and an average winter temperature (from 2009) of 22.8 degrees! Now that’s cold!

We at Gopher Heating don’t want you to have to suffer through this bitter cold. If you’ve stepped outside the last couple days, you know how brutal those icy cold winds are. Don’t take the chance of a furnace outage. Call us today to get your furnace checked, so you can rest assured that you will be toasty warm all winter long. You can reach us at our Savage location by calling  952-890-3466. And we wants you folks in the Le Sueur area to stay nice and toasty this winter, too!
