The importance of furnace maintenance

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t top on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so important. The greatest time to stop a problem is before it begins. While we approach the wintertime in Keokuk, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a furnace failure. Your furnace will be working hard this time of year to keep you comfy. Regular furnace maintenance from the team at WM J Kraus & Son will mend any current problems and identify and address any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without getting an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are many of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at WM J Kraus & Son in Keokuk will inspect all those moving fragments to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our specialists will inspect every moving piece of your system, even your wiring, to make certain 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 efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with changing your air filter is a crucial job to keep your system operating correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and causes additional strain on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also decrease 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 unaddressed, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay practical and keep you from any unexpected failures, which come with unanticipated bills. If you haven’t yet arranged for furnace maintenance, give the specialists at WM J Kraus & Son in Keokuk a call at 319-229-2318.
