The importance of furnace maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The best time to end a problem is before it begins. While we draw near the wintertime in Minocqua, you don’t want to be left in the cold from a furnace failure. Your furnace will be operating hard this winter to keep you comfortable. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Danco Heating & Cooling will repair any existing problems and identify and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair. Annual furnace maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without obtaining an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Danco Heating & Cooling in Minocqua will inspect all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our technicians will look at every moving piece of your system, even your wiring, to confirm that everything is running as it should. There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating correctly throughout the year: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital to-do list item to keep your system running efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and creates extra strain on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by causing extra wear and tear. Another thing to [[keep in mind|remember]bear in mind]67] is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air. The longer a problem goes ignored, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unforeseen failures, which come with unforeseen bills.
