The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so vital. The greatest time to halt a problem is before it arises. While we draw near the wintertime in Anchorage, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be working hard this season to keep you warm. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services will mend any present 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 consecutive years without getting an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services in Anchorage will inspect all those moving pieces to make sure they aren’t moving toward a malfunction. Our specialists will look at every moving function of your system, including your wiring, to make certain that everything is working as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning efficiently throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a crucial task to keep your system operating efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes additional tension on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating added wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, 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 unforeseen failures, which come with unanticipated bills. If you haven’t yet scheduled furnace maintenance, give the specialists at Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services in Anchorage a call at 907-202-9798.
