We will also be able to replace any worn parts quickly.
Cold weather and Checking the Filter
You will want to remember to check the filter regularly. Even in the cold, the filter should be changed on a regular basis. Depending how many people are in your home, and if you have pets, you may have to change it more often. If you are not sure the schedule of this, contact us, and we can advise you on a schedule that is best. You will want to check the furnace filter, and change is when recommended. Over time, dust and dirt in the air can get into the furnace. It is the job of the filter to capture and collect this. It will also help prevent the dirt from getting inside the furnace and the moving parts.
Besides checking the filter, you will also want to have the ductwork inspected. Doing so will help check for any damage. If there are cracks or holes in the ductwork, make sure that it is repaired as soon as possible. If this continues, then heat that is produced by the furnace will be lost without getting to the rooms of your home. This will also result in the furnace running longer than it otherwise should be. It will cost more in the long run as well.
