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 thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so important. The perfect time to end a problem is before it begins. While we approach the colder season in Mechanicsville, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold because of a furnace failure. Your furnace will be running hard this winter to keep you comfy. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at M & S Heating & Air LLC will repair any current problems and analyze and tend to 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 many years without receiving 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 professionals at M & S Heating & Air LLC in Mechanicsville will review all those moving pieces to ensure they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our technicians will investigate every moving piece of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is working as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning properly all through the year: check your air filter. Regularly testing and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a crucial to-do list item to keep your system running properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and produces added strain 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 creating additional wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes ignored, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unexpected malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
