Your furnace is under nearly constant pressure, so it requires more maintenance and more frequent attention than almost any appliance in your home. In order to keep your furnace in good condition and make sure its lifespan is as long as possible, the professional heating contractors at Rivers Plumbing Heating & Cooling recommend that you have the furnace in your St. Louis home inspected and tuned up at least once a year.
