Consider the importance of your furnace maintenance as you do getting the oil changed in your car. Your furnace is a mechanical system containing a lot of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not headed towards a breakdown this winter. The experts at Farris Heating & Air in Bartlesville will check out 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 quite a bit – check your air filter. The complications a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is easy – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is so important for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create 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 negatively effects your system’s efficiency and the extra wear and tear will decrease the life of your system. Your air filter is the front line for your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home goes through it. A dirty filter means filthy air.

The more time 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 complications before they become a breakdown, along with an unexpected bill.
