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 vital. The best time to end a problem is before it starts. While we move into the colder season in Columbus, you don’t want to be left in the cold from a furnace failure. Your furnace will be operating hard this season to keep you comfy. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling will repair any current problems and identify and address any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without receiving an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are numerous of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling in Columbus will examine all those moving parts to make sure they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our specialists will inspect every moving part of your system, including your wiring, to confirm that everything is working as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently testing and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system working correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes added effort on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating extra wear and tear. Another thing to remember is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.

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