The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so vital. The best time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we approach the colder season in McHenry, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold because of a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be operating hard this season to keep you comfy. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Jett's Heating & Air Inc. will repair any present problems and identify and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without getting an oil change – the same goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Jett's Heating & Air Inc. in McHenry will examine all those moving fragments to ensure they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our technicians will investigate every moving piece of your system, counting your wiring, to make certain that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating properly in every season: check your air filter. Regularly checking and keeping up with changing your air filter is an important task to keep your system working correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces additional strain on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by creating extra wear and tear. Another thing to remember is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears 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 on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen malfunctions, which come with unexpected bills. If you haven’t yet arranged for furnace maintenance, give the experts at Jett's Heating & Air Inc. in McHenry a call at 815-410-1128.
