How to Dispose of Your Old Furnace
Simple Guide to Getting Rid of Your Old Furnace
These type of heating devices are built to last at least 18 years. Whether it is powered by gas or oil, once the machine reaches the end of its lifespan, it can become a fire hazard. Getting rid of it properly will avoid any accidents. Here is a simple guide to disposing of your old furnace.
Start Cleaning the Area
Unplug the unit from the power. Remove any dust, debris, dead leaves, or any other items that do not belong inside or around the heating device. Make sure there are no water spills to avoid any accidents.
Clear a Pathway
Make enough room to accommodate moving it outside. As well as room for the people carrying the furnace from where the heating device is located, to where it will be picked up and taken away.
Find a Reliable Transportation Service
Find a heating and cooling system removal service or a hazardous removal company in your local phone book. Contact the contractor and schedule a day and time to have them come and remove your furnace, if possible.
Never toss the furnace in the trash, as this type of device is considered hazardous, and most states have specific regulations.
