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 keeping up with furnace maintenance is so important. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it starts. While we move into the wintertime in Westerville, you don’t want to be left in the cold due to a furnace failure. Your furnace will be working hard this winter to keep you comfortable. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Uptown Heating & Cooling will fix any existing problems and analyze and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years 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 examined so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at Uptown Heating & Cooling in Westerville will examine all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t moving toward a failure. Our technicians will look at every moving piece of your system, counting your wiring, to guarantee that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running properly in every season: check your air filter. Regularly checking and keeping up with changing your air filter is a crucial task to keep your system working correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes extra effort on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by causing extra wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home passes 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 on top of things and keep you from any unexpected malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
