The experts at Air Temperature Control in Macon 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 running efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention a lot – check your air filter. The complications a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is clear – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is so important for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create a domino effect of problems within your system. A dirty filter restricts air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which hinders your system’s efficiency and the extra wear and tear will shorten your system’s life. Your air filter is the front line for your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home flows through it. A polluted filter means polluted 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 problems before they become a breakdown, along with an unplanned bill.
