Annual furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without receiving an oil change – the same goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at PWA Heating & Cooling Inc in Plainfield will examine all those moving parts to make sure they aren’t heading toward a malfunction. Our experts will look at every moving part of your system, even your wiring, to guarantee that everything is working as it should. There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running properly throughout the year: check your air filter. Routinely checking and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a vital job to keep your system running efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and produces added strain on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease 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 clears through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air. The longer a problem goes ignored, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unforeseen malfunctions, which come with unanticipated bills.
