The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we draw near the winter months in Alice, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold due to a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be working hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Rescue Heating & Air will fix any existing problems and analyze and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without getting an oil change – the same goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at Rescue Heating & Air in Alice will inspect all those moving parts to make sure they aren’t moving toward a breakdown. Our technicians will investigate every moving part of your system, including your wiring, to guarantee that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning properly throughout the year: check your air filter. Regularly checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital to-do list item to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and creates additional tension on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by producing additional wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home passes through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

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