The importance of furnace maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with furnace maintenance is so vital. The best time to halt a problem is before it starts. While we draw near the colder season in the Main Line, you don’t want to be left in the cold due to a furnace failure. Your furnace will be working hard this winter to keep you comfy. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning will fix any current problems and analyze and tackle 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 consecutive years without obtaining an oil change – the same goes for 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 O'Brien Heating & Air Conditioning in the Main Line will inspect all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t moving toward a breakdown. Our technicians will inspect every moving function of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is functioning as it should. There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running efficiently throughout the year: check your air filter. Regularly checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important task to keep your system working efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and produces additional tension 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 extra 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 unattended, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unexpected bills.
