The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we move into the colder season in Houston, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold due to a furnace failure. Your furnace will be operating hard this winter to keep you comfy. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Marcos AC & Heating will repair any current problems and identify and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as crucial 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 a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Marcos AC & Heating in Houston will review all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our specialists will inspect every moving piece of your system, counting your wiring, to make certain that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating efficiently in every season: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with changing your air filter is a vital job to keep your system working correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes extra effort on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating additional wear and tear. Another thing to remember is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

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