The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it starts. While we move into the winter months in Dresden, you don’t want to be left in the cold due to a furnace failure. Your furnace will be operating hard this time of year to keep you comfortable. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at McFadden Heating & Cooling will mend any current problems and diagnose and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without receiving an oil change – the same applies to 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 professionals at McFadden Heating & Cooling in Dresden will review all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t moving toward a malfunction. Our experts will look at every moving function of your system, counting your wiring, to make certain that everything is working as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating properly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently testing and keeping up with changing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system running properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and produces added effort on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by causing additional 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 further a problem goes unaddressed, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unforeseen bills.
