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 Accurate Heating & Cooling LLC in East Peoria will inspect 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 all the time – check your air filter. The problems a dirty air filter can generate 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 issues within your system. A dirty filter reduces air flow which causes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which hinders your system’s efficiency and the extra 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 dirty filter means dirty 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 complications before they become a breakdown, along with an unplanned bill.
