Your furnace is a mechanical system comprised of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not on the path towards a breakdown this winter. The experts at Craig's Heating & Cooling in Bountiful will inspect both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to establish that your furnace is functioning as it should this season and many seasons to come. Something you can do to keep your furnace performing efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The complications a dirty air filter can cause are endless, and the solution is clear – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is vital for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can cause a domino effect of troubles within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which negatively effects your system’s efficiency and the added wear and tear will shorten the life of your system. Your air filter is the front line for your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home is passing through it. A polluted filter means filthy air. The longer you wait to get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address complications before they become a breakdown, along with an unplanned bill.
