The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so vital. The greatest time to end a problem is before it begins. While we draw near the winter months in San Jose, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold due to a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be running hard this season to keep you warm. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at American HVAC Inc will repair any existing problems and diagnose and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without obtaining an oil change – the same goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at American HVAC Inc in San Jose will review all those moving parts to ensure they aren’t moving toward a malfunction. Our experts will inspect every moving function of your system, even your wiring, to guarantee that everything is working as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating correctly throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important task to keep your system operating efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and produces additional strain on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by producing additional wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home passes through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes ignored, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unanticipated failures, which come with unforeseen bills.
