The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so vital. The perfect time to halt a problem is before it starts. While we move into the winter months in Shreveport, you don’t want to be left in the cold because of a furnace failure. Your furnace will be working hard this winter to keep you comfortable. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Moon's Air will mend any current problems and analyze and address 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 receiving an oil change – the same applies 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 Moon's Air in Shreveport will examine all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our specialists will investigate every moving part of your system, including your wiring, to make certain that everything is working as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating correctly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital task to keep your system running properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and creates added effort on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by causing added wear and tear. Another thing to keep 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 unattended, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unforeseen malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
