See your furnace maintenance as you do getting the oil changed in your car. Your furnace is a mechanical system comprised of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not headed towards a breakdown this winter. The experts at Heartland Heating & Cooling in Des Moines will review both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to ensure your furnace is 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 a lot – check your air filter. The complications a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is easy – 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 problems within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which causes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which has a negative impact on your system’s efficiency and the extra 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 goes through it. A polluted filter means filthy 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 problems before they become a breakdown, along with an unplanned bill.
