January 24, 2017

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with furnace maintenance is so important. The perfect time to stop a problem is before it begins. While we draw near the winter months in Macon, you don’t want to be left in the cold from a furnace failure. Your furnace will be operating hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Air Temperature Control will mend any current problems and identify and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as imperative 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 numerous of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Air Temperature Control in Macon will review all those moving parts to guarantee they aren’t moving toward a malfunction. Our experts will look at every moving function of your system, even your wiring, to confirm that everything is running as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running correctly all through the year: check your air filter. Routinely testing and keeping up with swapping your air filter is a vital task to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and creates extra strain on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lower your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by producing added wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes unaddressed, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unanticipated failures, which come with unexpected bills.
