The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The greatest time to end a problem is before it starts. While we approach the wintertime in Beckley and Mount Hope, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be running hard this time of year to keep you warm. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Appalachian Heating will repair any present problems and analyze and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without obtaining an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Appalachian Heating in Beckley and Mount Hope will examine all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t heading toward a failure. Our specialists will look at every moving piece of your system, including your wiring, to make certain that everything is running as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating efficiently in every season: check your air filter. Regularly inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important job to keep your system running properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and produces added tension on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by creating additional wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes ignored, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unanticipated malfunctions, which come with unexpected bills. If you haven’t yet arranged for furnace maintenance, give the professionals at Appalachian Heating in Beckley and Mount Hope a call at 304-707-0600.
