The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so vital. The best time to end a problem is before it starts. While we draw near the colder season in Lafayette, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold due to a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be working hard this winter to keep you comfortable. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at AC Sales will mend any present problems and analyze and address 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 years on end without getting an oil change – the same goes for 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 AC Sales in Lafayette will examine all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our technicians will look at every moving piece of your system, even your wiring, to make certain that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating efficiently in every season: check your air filter. Regularly testing and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a vital task to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces added tension on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by producing added wear and tear. Another thing to remember is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

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