Think of your furnace maintenance as you do getting the oil changed in your car. Your furnace is a mechanical system containing a lot of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not on your way to a breakdown this winter. The experts at Patterson & Stirling Inc in Erie will review both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to ensure your furnace is that your furnace is functioning as it should this season and many seasons to come.
Something you can do to keep your furnace operating efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The problems a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is simple – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is vital for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can lead to a domino effect of problems within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which causes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which hinders your system’s efficiency and the added wear and tear will shorten your system’s life. Your air filter also has an effect on your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home flows through it. A dirty filter means dirty air.
The longer you wait to get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address issues before they become a breakdown, along with an unplanned bill.
