The importance of furnace maintenance

January 24, 2017

Having to pay for needless repairs isn’t high on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so crucial. The perfect time to end a problem is before it begins. While we move into the colder season in Marshalltown, you don’t want to be abandoned in the cold because of a furnace malfunction. Your furnace will be running hard this season to keep you warm. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Kapaun & Brown Inc. will mend any current problems and identify and address any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without getting an oil change – the same relates to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are a number of things that should be tested so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Kapaun & Brown Inc. in Marshalltown will review all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t proceeding toward a malfunction. Our technicians will inspect every moving function of your system, counting your wiring, to guarantee that everything is running as it should.

There is also a straightforward thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning correctly all through the year: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with swapping your air filter is an important task to keep your system running properly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and produces additional strain on your furnace to maintain operation with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also lessen the life of your system by creating added wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The further a problem goes unattended, the more destruction 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. If you haven’t yet scheduled furnace maintenance, give the specialists at Kapaun & Brown Inc. in Marshalltown a call at 641-812-2028.
