Each furnace starts off the same. Brand new. It is the way homeowners use their furnaces and care for their furnaces that make the difference. Some owners demand too much from their central air system, leading to early repairs and damage. Others do not clean them, letting dirt build up and hurt efficiency.
Furnace contractors are experts at caring for and using central air systems the correct way. Here are some habits that furnace contractors practice that make their furnace better than yours.
Twice a year, my furnace receives maintenance. First and foremost, this means that my furnace is evaluated for any needed repairs. My furnace is treated early for any unfavorable conditions.
During maintenance, any microbiological growth or other buildup is removed from my furnace. Intensive cleaning is important to keep parts running smoothly. Otherwise, the furnace uses more energy and time to do the same amount of work.
Maintenance also ensures that my furnace is safe to use, efficient and in good standing. This is why I can count on my furnace to work reliably throughout the season.
In addition, because my furnace receives maintenance regularly, I know it will last longer than expected even with daily use.
If I suspect something wrong with my furnace, I fix it immediately. Because all the parts of the central air system work together, it is important that repairs are made in a timely manner. One weak part can cause another part to degrade. Before that happens, my furnace gets repairs done. This saves time and money.
Repairs also prevent serious and permanent damages. Instead of replacing the entire central air system later at a high cost, I want to care for my furnace now, the right way.
Absolutely urgent repairs include:
My furnace is for my home only. Your HVAC contractor has taken the time to measure your home and factor in home lifestyle goals. This is why it is impossible to transplant a furnace from one home to another.
Also, my furnace is given a reasonable load of work. By keeping the thermostat not too far from the desired temperature, the central air system is never overburdened.
As a general rule of thumb, even when the home is empty, keep the furnace running just a few degrees colder in the winter and warmer in the summer. This way, the home temperature is never too much work for the furnace.
