The importance of furnace maintenance

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with furnace maintenance is so important. The best time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we draw near the winter months 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 getting 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 inspect all those moving parts to ensure they aren’t moving toward a breakdown. Our technicians will look at every moving piece of your system, even your wiring, to guarantee that everything is running as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running properly in every season: check your air filter. Routinely checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important job to keep your system working properly, 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 shorten 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 harm it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unforeseen breakdowns, which come with unanticipated bills.
