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 important. The best time to halt a problem is before it arises. While we approach the wintertime in Rock Hill, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold from a furnace failure. Your furnace will be running hard this season to keep you warm. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at US Air Heating and Cooling will mend any present problems and identify and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without receiving an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are numerous of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at US Air Heating and Cooling in Rock Hill will review all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a breakdown. Our specialists will investigate every moving part of your system, including your wiring, to confirm that everything is running as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating properly all through the year: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital job to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and creates additional effort on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by causing extra wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes ignored, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unanticipated breakdowns, which come with unforeseen bills.
