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 keeping up with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The perfect time to end a problem is before it starts. While we move into the winter months in Perry, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold because of a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be running hard this season to keep you comfy. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Gillman Heating and Air will repair any present problems and diagnose and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years 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 experts at Gillman Heating and Air in Perry will examine all those moving fragments to ensure they aren’t proceeding toward a failure. Our specialists will inspect every moving piece of your system, even your wiring, to confirm that everything is running as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running properly in every season: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with changing your air filter is a vital to-do list item to keep your system operating efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and causes extra effort on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by producing added 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 unclean, so is your air.

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