The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it begins. While we move into the wintertime in McMurray, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold from a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be running hard this time of year to keep you warm. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing will mend any existing problems and diagnose and tackle 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 applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Kowalski Heating, Cooling & Plumbing in McMurray will examine all those moving fragments to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a failure. Our technicians will investigate every moving function of your system, including your wiring, to guarantee that everything is working as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Regularly testing and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a vital task to keep your system running correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces additional tension on your furnace to work 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 passes through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The further a problem goes unattended, 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.
