The experts at Quality Refrigeration in Baltimore will review both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to establish that your furnace is functioning as it should this season and many seasons to come. Something you can do to keep your furnace running efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention a lot – check your air filter. The problems a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is simple – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is so important for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create a domino effect of issues within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which causes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which hinders your system’s efficiency and the additional wear and tear will shorten the life of your system. Your air filter also impacts your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home goes through it. A filthy filter means filthy 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.
