Each winter, countless homeowners will experience issues with their furnaces when the cold air sets in, and then will be in for a headache, as well as expensive costs of replacement in some instances. There are several benefits to keeping up with furnace maintenance and cleaning. You will want to make sure to contact us at the first sign of an issue with the furnace. We can inspect it to ensure the parts and components are working the most efficient way possible. From an energy efficiency standpoint, furnace maintenance is critical to lowering heating costs. If your furnace is not running properly, it will be using more energy to yield less heat. Cleaning and maintenance will mitigate this risk, allowing you to stay warm without causing extra spending.
Air quality should also be a priority for your home in the winter. You and your family will be spending more time in the house with the windows shut. In addition to furnace maintenance, it is recommended getting the air ducts evaluated and cleaned to reduce dust, dirt and mold particles in the air. Duct cleaning and maintenance can also improve energy efficiency in winter.
You will also want to remember to check and replace the filter for your furnace when it is recommended. The filter is designed to capture dust, dirt, and other pollutants that are in the air of your home. Remember to not run the filter, as it can cause extra strain on the parts of the furnace. If you do notice an issue with the furnace system, make sure to contact us so we can inspect it for you.
