The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so vital. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it begins. While we move into the colder season in Alliance, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold from a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be working hard this season to keep you comfy. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces will repair any current problems and analyze and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual furnace maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without getting an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces in Alliance will inspect all those moving parts to ensure they aren’t moving toward a malfunction. Our technicians will investigate every moving function of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is working as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running correctly throughout the year: check your air filter. Regularly inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important job to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and creates extra strain on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating added wear and tear. Another thing to keep 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 prolonged a problem goes unattended, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unanticipated failures, which come with unanticipated bills. If you haven’t yet scheduled furnace maintenance, give the experts at Jack's Heating, Cooling, Stoves & Fireplaces in Alliance a call at 308-321-4703.
