The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so important. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we move into the wintertime in Thedford, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold from a furnace failure. Your furnace will be running hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning will mend any current problems and identify and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without getting an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning in Thedford will review all those moving pieces to make sure they aren’t moving toward a malfunction. Our technicians will inspect every moving part of your system, including your wiring, to guarantee that everything is running as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Regularly testing and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important job to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and causes extra strain on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by producing additional wear and tear. Another thing to remember is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes unattended, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unexpected bills.
