The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it starts. While we approach the wintertime in West Jefferson, you don’t want to be left in the cold because of a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be running hard this season to keep you comfortable. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. will repair any current problems and diagnose and address any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without receiving an oil change – the same goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at West Jefferson Plumbing and Heating, Inc. in West Jefferson will examine all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our technicians will investigate every moving function of your system, even your wiring, to guarantee that everything is running as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Regularly testing and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system operating efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and creates extra effort on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by producing extra wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes unaddressed, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen failures, which come with unforeseen bills.
