The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so important. The best time to halt a problem is before it begins. While we draw near the wintertime in Ballwin and St. Charles, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be running hard this season to keep you comfortable. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Air Alliance Team will mend any existing problems and diagnose and tend to 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 years on end without getting an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are numerous of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Air Alliance Team in Ballwin and St. Charles will review all those moving pieces to ensure they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our experts will look at every moving piece of your system, even your wiring, to make certain that everything is working as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning properly all through the year: check your air filter. Routinely checking and keeping up with changing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes additional effort on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by causing extra wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind 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 prolonged a problem goes unattended, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unanticipated bills.
