The experts at Colvin's Inc in Excelsior Springs will review both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to keep your furnace that your furnace is functioning as it should this season and many seasons to come. Something you can do to keep your furnace operating efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention quite a bit – check your air filter. The problems a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is simple – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is imperative for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create a domino effect of problems within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which has a negative impact on your system’s efficiency and the extra wear and tear will shorten the life of your system. Your air filter is the front line for your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home flows through it. A dirty filter means dirty air. The longer you wait to get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address complications before they become a breakdown, along with an unexpected bill.
