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.

Your furnace will be operating hard this time of year to keep you warm. Annual furnace maintenance from the team at Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc. will repair any existing problems and diagnose and tend to any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair. Annual furnace maintenance is as crucial 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 many of things that should be examined so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Custom Sheetmetal & Roofing, Inc. in Topeka will review all those moving pieces to make sure they aren’t proceeding toward a breakdown. Our experts will investigate every moving part of your system, counting your wiring, to guarantee that everything is running as it should. There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning correctly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with changing your air filter is an important job to keep your system working efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and produces additional effort on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten 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 passes through your air filter. If your filter is unclean, so is your air. The prolonged a problem goes unaddressed, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay proactive and keep you from any unforeseen failures, which come with unexpected bills.
