Your furnace is a mechanical system containing a lot of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not on the path towards a breakdown this winter. The experts at Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. in South Beloit and Belvidere will inspect both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to establish that your furnace is functioning as it should this season and many seasons to come. Something you can do to keep your furnace performing efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The troubles a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is simple – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is imperative for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create a domino effect of troubles within your system. A dirty filter reduces air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which has a negative impact on your system’s efficiency and the extra wear and tear will shorten the life of your system. Your air filter is the front line for your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home goes through it. A filthy filter means filthy air. The longer you wait to fix a problem, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address issues before they become a breakdown, along with an unexpected bill.
