The importance of furnace maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so important. The perfect time to end a problem is before it begins. While we move into the colder season in Bountiful, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold due to a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be running hard this time of year to keep you warm. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling will fix any current problems and diagnose and tend to 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 relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling in Bountiful will review all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a breakdown. Our experts will look at every moving part of your system, even your wiring, to make certain that everything is functioning as it should. There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running properly all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes extra tension on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by causing additional 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 clears through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air. The longer a problem goes unaddressed, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unanticipated failures, which come with unforeseen bills.
