The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead 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 Wausau, you don’t want to be left in the cold from a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be working hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Gilray Heating and Cooling will mend any existing problems and analyze and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without receiving an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Gilray Heating and Cooling in Wausau will inspect all those moving parts to ensure they aren’t heading toward a failure. Our experts will look at every moving part of your system, even your wiring, to confirm 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. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with changing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system working properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes additional strain on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only lower 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 is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home passes through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.

The longer a problem goes unattended, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unanticipated malfunctions, which come with unexpected bills.
