How Do I Boost My Airflow?
Having a technician inspect and maintain your unit will ensure your furnace promotes proper airflow throughout your home.
Why You May Be Eexperiencing Poor Airflow…
Limited or restricted airflow is caused by a strain on your system and can lead to a shortened lifespan or an increase in repairs. When your system is strained, it will be unable to achieve the desired temperature you would like to heat your home.
How Does Maintenance Prevent Repairs?
Proactively servicing your furnace will allow a technician to detect any underlying issues before they turn into larger problems. A trained technician will look for any parts that are beginning to wear out, apply proper lubrication where necessary, and inspect electric wiring.
Why You Should Schedule Maintenance…
It is ideal to schedule furnace service before the colder weather sets in to ensure your system can deliver peak performance throughout the winter season.
Maintain Manufacturer’s Warranty
How Can I Maintain My Warranty?
Most furnaces come with a 10-year warranty. A well maintained unit has an average lifespan of upwards of 20 years. If you run into the need for a repair or replacement overall, you will need to produce a service record to provide that a professional has inspected it annually. Without proof of service, you will void your warranty and pay out of pocket for any repairs that come up.
Improve Air Quality
How Can Maintenance Improve Indoor Air Quality?
An additional benefit to regular maintenance is the ability to improve the condition of your home’s indoor air quality. Furnace filters need to be changed every 90 days so you and your loved ones can breathe clean, high-quality air every day.
What Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality?
Aside from your filter, dirt and debris build up in other areas of your unit as well. This buildup will restrict airflow and cause your system to overwork to evenly distribute heat throughout your home. A technician will ensure your system is free of dust, mold, mildew, and other contaminants.
