The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with furnace maintenance is so vital. The greatest time to end a problem is before it starts. While we move into the winter months in Lexington, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of 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 repair any existing problems and identify and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without getting an oil change – the same goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at James Heating & A/C, Inc in Lexington will examine all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our experts will inspect every moving piece of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating properly all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital job to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes extra effort on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by producing extra wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes ignored, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen failures, which come with unexpected bills.
