Tips to Keep Your Furnace Working Properly

In addition to not charging extra when you need help on the weekends, holidays, or overnight, we do more to keep things affordable for our clients. One thing we do is provide advice about how you can keep your furnace in good working order.

Here are some of the most common problems that plague furnaces and what you can do about them:

Dirty Filters

The leading cause of furnace failure is a dirty filter. Depending on the model you have, your filter may have to be changed as often as every three months. If you don’t change your filter often enough, it can become clogged and make your furnace work harder just to circulate air. If left unchanged, a dirty or clogged filter can also damage the switch that controls your furnace’s fan. To prevent the problems that stem from a dirty filter, change your filter regularly.

Lack of Maintenance

Just as routine maintenance can help prolong the life of your car, regular maintenance can also extend the working life of your furnace. You should call Lakeview Heating and Cooling to inspect your furnace at least once per year. This will enable us to identify any existing issues that could lead to bigger, costlier problems down the line.

Wear and Tear

Furnaces work hard when it’s cold outside. As a furnace continues to heat your living or work space over the years, its parts experience inevitable wear and tear. If your furnace is old, it’s important for you to have it inspected by one of our talented technicians before the temperature drops.

Schedule an inspection with Lakeview Heating and Cooling at the beginning of fall instead of waiting for winter to arrive. By being proactive, you can avoid having to suffer through some chilly temperatures if your unit experienced excessive wear and tear and needs to be repaired or replaced.

No matter what kind of problem you’re having with your furnace, we can help. Give us a call or contact Lakeview Heating and Cooling online to schedule a service appointment or furnace inspection now. We promise, you’ll be glad you did. And remember – whenever you think of heating and cooling, think of us!
