The experts at Air Houston Mechanical LLC in Humble 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 operating efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The troubles a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is clear – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is vital for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create a domino effect of troubles within your system. A dirty filter reduces air flow which forces 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 has an effect on your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home is passing through it. A polluted filter means filthy air. The more time 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 a surprise bill.
