The importance of furnace maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The perfect time to end a problem is before it starts. While we approach the wintertime in Mount Pleasant, you don’t want to be left in the cold because of a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be running hard this season to keep you comfortable. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Olde Towne Heating & Air will mend any present problems and identify and address any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair. Routine furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without obtaining 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 professionals at Olde Towne Heating & Air in Mount Pleasant will examine all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t heading toward a failure. Our specialists will inspect every moving piece of your system, counting your wiring, to guarantee that everything is functioning as it should. There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning properly all through the year: check your air filter. Regularly inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital job to keep your system operating efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes additional strain on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating additional 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 further a problem goes unaddressed, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unanticipated malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
