Annual furnace maintenance gives us an opportunity to identify existing problems that could lead to a furnace repair down the road.

Think of your furnace maintenance as you do getting the oil changed in your car. Your furnace is a mechanical system containing a lot of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not on the path towards a breakdown this winter. The experts at Lanz Furnace and Fireplace in Monroe will review both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to ensure your furnace is 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 quite a bit – check your air filter. The problems a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is simple – 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 cause a domino effect of issues within your system. A dirty filter reduces 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 extra 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 dirty air.

The more time 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 unexpected bill.
