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 continuing with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The best time to stop a problem is before it arises. While we draw near the wintertime in Mechanicsburg, you don’t want to be left in the cold because of a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be running hard this season to keep you comfortable. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at H & H Service Company will mend any present problems and identify 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 consecutive years without obtaining an oil change – the same applies to 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 pros at H & H Service Company in Mechanicsburg will review all those moving pieces to make sure they aren’t proceeding toward a breakdown. Our experts will look at every moving function of your system, even your wiring, to make certain that everything is running as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning efficiently in every season: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a crucial task to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and produces extra effort 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 causing additional wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind 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 longer a problem goes unaddressed, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen failures, which come with unforeseen bills.
