The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with furnace maintenance is so vital. The best time to halt a problem is before it arises. While we approach the colder season in Newton, you don’t want to be left in the cold because of a furnace failure. Your furnace will be operating hard this winter to keep you warm. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Brookwood Inc will repair any present problems and diagnose and address any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual 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 goes for furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the pros at Brookwood Inc in Newton will review all those moving fragments to make sure they aren’t heading toward a breakdown. Our specialists will inspect every moving part of your system, even your wiring, to confirm that everything is running as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning correctly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important job to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and causes additional effort on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by creating added wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes unaddressed, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unanticipated failures, which come with unforeseen bills.
