As a homeowner you likely understand the importance of caring for your appliances. Why? Because if you take care of your garage door, you washer/ dryer and your HVAC, they will take care of you.
If you’ve been following our blog you’ve likely noticed that there are a few things we’ve mentioned on more than one occasion. First, you need to stay on top of your heater / furnace filter replacement. When your filter becomes very dirty (and clogged) your system won’t work as well as it should.
A heater / furnace with a clogged filter is going to need to work a lot harder—which means the motor will be strained. When this happens, the system will be at greater risk of failure, not to mention it’s going to lead to upticks in the owner’s energy bill.
You’ve also likely noticed that we spend quite a bit of time talking about the benefits of annual maintenance.
If you’ve missed those blogs, we’ll do a quick recap.
You can think of your household appliances (including your heater / furnace) in the same way you think of the car that’s in your driveway. You understand that you need to have your oil changed at regular intervals, that your tires need to be rotated and that your transmission fluid needs to be flushed and /or changed according to manufacturer recommendations.
If you decide to skip all of those things, you’re bound to run into your fair share of problems. Namely, you run the risk of doing serious damage to your engine, which will lead to a flurry of expensive repairs.
Although most people don’t realize that their heater / furnace can benefit from annual maintenance, if this isn’t something you’ve been doing, you’ll want to consider calling a local HVAC / AC / furnace service provider to get an appointment on the books.
When you schedule annual maintenance the technician will be able to lubricate parts that need to be lubricated, swap out the air filter and check the system from top to bottom. If they think there is a part that looks as if it’s at risk of failure, they’ll let you know so you can swap it out.
Annual maintenance will not only help keep your system running at peak performance, it will also help ward off expensive, emergency repairs.
