The importance of furnace maintenance01/24/2017Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so important. The best time to end a problem is before it begins. While we approach the wintertime in Keokuk, you don’t want to be left in the cold due to a furnace breakdown. 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 diagnose and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair. Regular furnace maintenance is as imperative as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go many years without getting an oil change – the same relates 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 pros 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 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 efficiently all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a crucial job to keep your system running properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes extra tension 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 unforeseen failures, which come with unanticipated bills.
