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 thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so important. The greatest time to end a problem is before it starts. While we move into the winter months in Newark, you don’t want to be left in the cold from a furnace failure. Your furnace will be working hard this season to keep you comfortable. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Luikart Heating & Cooling will repair any present problems and analyze and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without getting an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are numerous of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Luikart Heating & Cooling in Newark will examine all those moving pieces to ensure they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our experts will investigate every moving part of your system, including 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 running correctly all through the year: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with swapping your air filter is an important task to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and causes additional effort on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by producing added wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels 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 proactive and keep you from any unexpected breakdowns, which come with unanticipated bills.
