The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why keeping up with furnace maintenance is so important. The best time to halt a problem is before it begins. While we approach the winter months in Moline, you don’t want to be left in the cold due to a furnace failure. Your furnace will be operating hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at J.L. Brady Company LLC will repair any existing problems and diagnose and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Annual furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without receiving an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at J.L. Brady Company LLC in Moline will review all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t heading toward a failure. Our technicians will look at every moving function of your system, even your wiring, to make certain that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating correctly in every season: check your air filter. Routinely checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital job to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes extra effort on your furnace to work with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease the life of your system by creating additional wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air.

The further a problem goes unaddressed, the more destruction it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unanticipated breakdowns, which come with unanticipated bills. If you haven’t yet scheduled furnace maintenance, give the professionals at J.L. Brady Company LLC in Moline a call at 309-517-7511.
