Do You Know How to Maintain Your Furnace?

January 23rd, 2020

Have you been maintaining your furnace? Did you know that you should be taking steps to keep your furnace running smoothly every month? Like cars or other systems in your home, your furnace needs regular care if you expect it to run throughout the year without problems. Furnaces need to be checked to make sure that nuts and bolts are staying put, and furnace filters have to be replaced regularly to make sure they’re clean enough to do their job. 

If you do not keep up with regular maintenance on your furnace, then it is likely you will need furnace repair in Philadelphia. Furnaces that don’t receive regular maintenance tend to die much faster than those that receive regular checkups. They may also cost you more in energy expenses by running inefficiently. The cost of maintaining your furnace is much more affordable over time than paying for repair after repair, so it’s worth the effort to learn how to maintain your furnace now. 

There are a few things you need to do to keep your furnace running as long as possible. First, you always need to make sure you are replacing the air filter once a month. Second, you need to clean out both the air ducts and the blower fan on a regular basis. Third, you need to inspect the fan and the internal components to make sure that they are not loose or missing.
If you cannot do this on your own, then make sure to contact Guaranteed Plumbing & Heating, Inc. for maintenance and heating repair in Philadelphia today.
