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 continuing with furnace maintenance is so vital. The perfect time to end a problem is before it starts. While we approach the wintertime in Hudsonville, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold from a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be working hard this season to keep you comfy. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services will fix any present problems and diagnose and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual furnace maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without getting an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services in Hudsonville will examine all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t moving toward a failure. Our experts will look at every moving piece of your system, even your wiring, to guarantee that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important task to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and creates additional strain on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by creating extra wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home passes through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes ignored, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unexpected malfunctions, which come with unexpected bills.
