Annual 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 applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are numerous of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Central Air Inc in Portland Metro will inspect all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our experts will inspect every moving piece of your system, counting your wiring, to guarantee that everything is working as it should. There is also a simple thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace running properly all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently testing and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system operating properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter confines airflow and causes added 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 causing additional 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 passes through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air. The longer a problem goes unattended, the more damage it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unanticipated failures, which come with unanticipated bills.
