Your furnace is a mechanical system with a lot of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not headed towards a breakdown this winter. The experts at Triton HVAC & Refrigeration in Colorado Springs will inspect 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 performing efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The problems a dirty air filter can cause are endless, and the solution is clear – 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 lead to a domino effect of issues within your system. A dirty filter reduces air flow which causes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which negatively effects your system’s efficiency and the added 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 filthy filter means dirty air. The longer you wait to fix a problem, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address issues before they become a breakdown, along with a surprise bill.
