The importance of furnace maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so important. The best time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we move into the colder season in Moline, you don’t want to be left in the cold due to a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be running hard this time of year to keep you warm. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning will fix any current 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 consecutive years without obtaining an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Freed Heating & Air Conditioning in Moline will review all those moving parts to ensure they aren’t proceeding toward a breakdown. Our technicians will inspect every moving part of your system, counting 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 functioning efficiently in every season: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital task to keep your system running properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and creates added strain on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating added 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 clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air. The further a problem goes unaddressed, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unforeseen malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
