The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The greatest time to end a problem is before it begins. While we approach the wintertime in Lodi, you don’t want to be left in the cold because of a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be running hard this season to keep you comfortable. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning will repair any current problems and identify and tend to 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 getting an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning in Lodi will inspect all those moving fragments to make sure they aren’t heading toward a failure. Our experts will look at every moving part of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating properly throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely checking and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a vital task to keep your system running efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces extra tension on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen 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 dirty, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes ignored, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen failures, which come with unforeseen bills.
