Consider the importance of your furnace maintenance as you do getting the oil changed in your car. Your furnace is a mechanical system comprised of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not headed towards a breakdown this winter. The experts at Garoken Energy Co. Inc. in Beaverton will review 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 operating efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention a lot – check your air filter. The troubles 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 imperative 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 reduces air flow which causes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which has a negative impact on your system’s efficiency and the additional wear and tear will decrease the life of your system. Your air filter also has an effect on 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 get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address issues before they become a breakdown, along with an unplanned bill.
