Importance of Checking Your Furnace

Importance of Checking your Furnace

You may be asking yourself, is it really THAT important to have my furnace checked out? The answer is yes! This cold weather we are experiencing in St. Louis means that your system is going to be in overdrive this season, and Advantage Air LLC is here to tell you why having routine maintenance performed is crucial.

Importance of Furnace Maintenance

Your furnace system controls the temperature and moves air throughout your home and business. This means that the total comfort and air quality is reliant on one machine! At Advantage Air, we think that’s pretty important.  That’s why we continue to recommend a preventative maintenance inspection by a qualified service technician to keep your HVAC functioning at peak efficiency. Doing this allows our team to identify any potential problems before they turn into disasters. Common problems can include but are not limited to:

  • Loose ducts due to thermal expansion and contraction
  • Non-lubricated blower motor bearings
  • Replacing of air filter
  • Removing dust from fan blades and AC condensing coil

Why Have Your Furnace Inspected?

During a thorough HVAC inspection, we can also find and repair problems that may not be as obvious. Some of these problems include:

  • Weak blower belts
  • Burners firing improperly
  • Loose wiring harnesses
  • Coolant leaks

Along with having routine maintenance done on your system, we believe changing your filter every 30 days can greatly impact the overall efficiency. This is a crucial thing to do in between maintenance appointments to keep your machine in top shape.

Advantage Air LLC is here to help you with all of your HVAC needs. That is why we recommend that all our customers keep up with the routine maintenance of their system. Ask yourself, is your unit due for a tune-up? If you think so or even have any questions, give us a call today!
