The importance of furnace maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so important. The best time to end a problem is before it starts. While we move into the wintertime in Florissant, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold from a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be operating hard this season to keep you warm. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at B & B Heating & Cooling will fix any current problems and identify and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair. Annual 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 relates 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 professionals at B & B Heating & Cooling in Florissant will review all those moving pieces to ensure they aren’t heading toward a breakdown. Our experts will look at every moving part of your system, even your wiring, to make certain that everything is running as it should. There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running efficiently in every season: check your air filter. Regularly inspecting and keeping up with changing your air filter is an important job to keep your system working correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces added effort on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by creating added wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air. The prolonged a problem goes ignored, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unanticipated bills.
