The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it starts. While we move into the winter months in Heflin, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold due to a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be running hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc will repair any present problems and identify and address any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as imperative 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 a number of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc in Heflin will review all those moving pieces to make sure they aren’t moving toward a failure. Our technicians will look at every moving part of your system, including your wiring, to confirm that everything is working as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning properly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently checking 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 causes added tension on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by producing additional wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home passes 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 on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen breakdowns, which come with unforeseen bills. If you haven’t yet arranged for furnace maintenance, give the specialists at Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc in Heflin a call at 256-270-1196.
