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 thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so important. The best time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we draw near the winter months in Lincoln, you don’t want to be left in the cold because of a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be working hard this time of year to keep you warm. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at AW Heating & Air Conditioning will repair any current problems and analyze and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual furnace maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without obtaining 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 pros at AW Heating & Air Conditioning in Lincoln will review all those moving parts to ensure they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our technicians will look at every moving function of your system, including 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 functioning properly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a crucial task to keep your system running efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and creates added tension on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating extra wear and tear. Another thing to remember is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home passes 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 unexpected malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
