The importance of furnace maintenance

Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so vital. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it starts. While we draw near the colder season in Gresham, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold because of a furnace breakdown. Your furnace will be working hard this winter to keep you comfortable. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Honke Heating & AC will repair any existing problems and identify and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without getting an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Honke Heating & AC in Gresham will review all those moving parts to ensure they aren’t proceeding toward a breakdown. Our specialists will look at every moving function of your system, counting your wiring, to confirm that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running properly in every season: check your air filter. Regularly inspecting and keeping up with swapping your air filter is an important task to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and creates additional strain on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by creating added 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 dirty, 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 breakdowns, which come with unexpected bills. If you haven’t yet arranged for furnace maintenance, give the specialists at Honke Heating & AC in Gresham a call at 503-663-8033.
