The importance of furnace maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for needless 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 halt a problem is before it arises. While we approach the colder season in Lexington, you don’t want to be left in the cold due to a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be working hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at James Heating & A/C, Inc will mend any current problems and diagnose and tackle 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 years on end without getting an oil change – the same goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at James Heating & A/C, Inc in Lexington will review all those moving pieces to ensure they aren’t heading toward a breakdown. Our specialists will investigate every moving function of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is working as it should. There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating correctly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital task to keep your system working efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and creates additional tension 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 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 prolonged a problem goes ignored, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unanticipated malfunctions, which come with unforeseen bills.
