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 crucial. The perfect time to end a problem is before it begins. While we approach the colder season in Racine, you don’t want to be left in the cold from a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be working hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc will fix any existing problems and diagnose and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual furnace maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without getting an oil change – the same applies 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 pros at Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc in Racine will review all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our experts will investigate every moving function of your system, even your wiring, to guarantee that everything is running as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating efficiently throughout the year: check your air filter. Regularly checking and keeping up with changing your air filter is a vital job to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and produces extra effort on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by creating additional wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind 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 longer a problem goes unattended, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unanticipated bills.
