Your furnace is a mechanical system containing a lot of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not on your way to a breakdown this winter. The experts at James Heating & A/C, Inc in Lexington will check out 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 running efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The problems a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is clear – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is imperative for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create a domino effect of issues within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which has a negative impact on your system’s efficiency and the added wear and tear will shorten the life of your system. Your air filter also impacts your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home is passing through it. A filthy filter means filthy air. The longer you wait to fix a problem, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address problems before they become a breakdown, along with an unplanned bill.
