Consider the importance of your furnace maintenance as you do getting the oil changed in your car. Your furnace is a mechanical system with a lot of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not on the path towards a breakdown this winter. The experts at MPC Heating & Cooling in Chadron 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 performing efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention quite a bit – check your air filter. The troubles a dirty air filter can cause are endless, and the solution is simple – 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 lead to a domino effect of troubles within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which causes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which hinders your system’s efficiency and the additional wear and tear will shorten 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 goes through it. A dirty filter means filthy air. The longer you wait to fix a problem, 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 unexpected bill.
