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 keeping up with furnace maintenance is so vital. The best time to halt a problem is before it starts. While we approach the wintertime in Columbia, you don’t want to be left in the cold from a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be operating hard this time of year to keep you comfortable. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Watts Electric & A/C Inc will fix any present problems and analyze and tackle 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 consecutive years without getting an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Watts Electric & A/C Inc in Columbia will inspect all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t heading toward a failure. Our specialists will inspect every moving piece of your system, including your wiring, to guarantee that everything is working as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning efficiently in every season: check your air filter. Regularly checking and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a vital to-do list item to keep your system working correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces extra tension on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower 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 travels through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes unaddressed, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unanticipated malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
