The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so important. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it begins. While we move into the winter months in Sacramento, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a furnace failure. Your furnace will be running hard this winter to keep you warm. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at American HVAC Inc will fix any existing problems and analyze and tend to 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 getting an oil change – the same goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at American HVAC Inc in Sacramento will examine all those moving fragments to ensure they aren’t moving toward a malfunction. Our technicians will look at every moving function of your system, including your wiring, to guarantee that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Regularly checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces added tension on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by causing added 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 damage it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unexpected bills.
