The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we approach the wintertime in Pocatello, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold due to a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be working hard this winter to keep you comfortable. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Vogts Heating & Air will repair any existing problems and diagnose and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without receiving an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Vogts Heating & Air in Pocatello will examine all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our specialists will investigate every moving part of your system, even your wiring, to guarantee that everything is running as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running efficiently throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely inspecting and keeping up with changing your air filter is a crucial to-do list item to keep your system working properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes additional effort on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by producing additional wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The further a problem goes unaddressed, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unforeseen failures, which come with unanticipated bills.
