The correct size and model for the space provided is best—make sure it is not too restrictive. The replacement time may vary, depending on the quality of the filter and if you own pets, have allergies, or allow smoking in your Woodbury home. It could range from once a month to once a year depending on the product and the special situations mentioned above. Feel free to consult our knowledgeable technicians if you are unsure.

Yes, scheduling an annual maintenance service for your furnace will keep your warranty intact. It will also increase the efficiency of your unit, which will ultimately reduce your operating costs and extend the life of your unit. There’s an important safety reason for maintenance, too. If your furnace or its parts are old or in need of a repair, there’s a higher chance of a carbon monoxide leak. We recommend Woodbury homeowners opt for proactive maintenance because it allows us to detect potential issues before they turn into bigger safety concerns.
Not necessarily. There’s a common misconception that a larger furnace will pump out more heat. It’s key for your comfort and equipment longevity to have your furnace properly sized for your home. The right-sized unit will run the appropriate cycles it takes to heat all of the spaces in your home. When you have a furnace installed by S&R, you can rest assured that you have the correct size.
Just like the humid air in summer seems to add a few degrees to the temperature—the same goes for indoor air. This allows you to set your furnace to a lower temperature, while still achieving maximum warmth and comfort. Dry air can cause sore throats, dry skin, itchy eyes, and bloody noses—and dry air can be a contributing factor in catching a cold or flu. A healthy level of humidity is between 35 and 50 percent. Too much humidity can increase airborne mold, bacteria, and fungi that, when ingested, can lead to other health concerns including infections, asthma, allergies, and other respiratory illnesses.
