Furnace-repairYour furnace is like the lungs of your house. It takes in air, filters it, and distributes clean air into all the different areas of your home. Make sure you’re taking care of the lungs of your home. Just as if it were a living human organ, your furnace system needs to be cared for. Here’s why, and how you can care for your furnace this winter and beyond with furnace maintenance.

Change Those Filters

Filthy filters are the enemy of furnace systems. Filters are supposed to screen out dust, pollen and other airborne pollutants. When filters do their job efficiently, they can accumulate a lot of debris, and fast. If you’re not caring for your furnace, those clogged filters will cause your system to work harder to pump fresh air into your home. For optimal performance, you should change your furnace filters often, preferably every 30-60 days.

Care for Your Coil

If you’re not changing your furnace filters, you could also end up with a frozen furnace coil. Clogged filters restrict airflow to your furnace system, allowing the coil temperature to drop. While you should make sure your filters are clean, also make sure your coil is clear of any obstructions or debris to keep it working at peak efficiency.
