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 important. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it begins. While we move into the wintertime in Hodgenville, you don’t want to be left in the cold because of a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be working hard this winter to keep you comfortable. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Phelps Heating & Cooling will mend any present problems and analyze and address any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without obtaining an oil change – the same goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Phelps Heating & Cooling in Hodgenville will examine all those moving fragments to ensure they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our technicians will look at every moving part of your system, even your wiring, to confirm 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 correctly all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a vital job to keep your system working correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes additional strain on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease 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 passes through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes ignored, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen malfunctions, which come with unexpected bills.
