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 thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so vital. The best time to stop a problem is before it arises. While we move into the colder season in Kearney, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold because of a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be running hard this time of year to keep you comfortable. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning will mend any existing problems and identify 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 years on end without getting an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning in Kearney will inspect all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our technicians will look at every moving function of your system, even your wiring, to confirm that everything is working as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning properly throughout the year: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with changing your air filter is a vital task to keep your system running properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and causes extra strain on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by causing 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 dirty, so is your air.

The further a problem goes unattended, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unanticipated breakdowns, which come with unanticipated bills.
