HVAC Maintenance & Service
Regardless of what type of furnace you have, performing regular maintenance is the key for efficient out comings and money savings. Since dirt is the biggest enemy of your furnace, as it wastes fuel and considerably lowers your furnace’s efficiency, you can save you a lot of money on heating costs as well as avoid expensive repairs in the future simply by keeping your furnace clean. Because dirt affects all three basic components of your furnace: the filter system, the blower and the motor, your furnace filter should be replaced or cleaned at the beginning of the heating season and about once a month during periods of continuous in order to keep your home cleaner and to prevent dirt and debris from getting into your blower and damaging it.
why to maintain?
- RUN MORE EFFICIENTLY. When dirt covers the blower motor, the switches,the heat exchangerand the ignition system, the furnace has to work harder. A dirty filter reduces the volume of air flowing over the heat exchanger that forces your furnace to run in longer cycles. Dirt covering the heat exchanger, a crucial and expensive component of furnaces, insulates it and the air blowing over won’t absorb as much heat, increasing its running time.
- LAST LONGER. Although furnaces are engineered to produce heat, dirty parts speed the aging process for the electronic switches and controls, the blower motor and fan, along with the heat exchanger.
- RUN SAFELY. Over time, a dirty heat exchanger may crack prematurely and it can deadly emit carbon monoxide into your home’s air. These cracks may force an expensive repair or a complete furnace replacement.
