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 keeping up with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it begins. While we draw near the colder season in Rocky Mount, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be working hard this season to keep you warm. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning will fix any current problems and identify and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual furnace maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive 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 professionals at Davis Heating & Air Conditioning in Rocky Mount will examine all those moving fragments to ensure they aren’t heading toward a breakdown. Our experts will inspect every moving part of your system, including your wiring, to confirm that everything is working as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating correctly in every season: check your air filter. Regularly checking and keeping up with swapping your air filter is an important task to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and creates additional effort on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by causing added wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes unaddressed, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unforeseen malfunctions, which come with unforeseen bills.
