January 24, 2017

Having to pay for pointless repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why continuing with furnace maintenance is so vital. The best time to stop a problem is before it begins. While we move into the wintertime in Ellsworth, you don’t want to be deserted in the cold due to a furnace failure. Your furnace will be working hard this time of year to keep you comfortable. Routine furnace maintenance from the team at Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC will mend any current problems and analyze and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Regular furnace maintenance is as crucial as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go years on end without obtaining an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are numerous of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the professionals at Walter's-Eaton's Electric, Plumbing, Heating & AC in Ellsworth will review all those moving parts to make sure they aren’t moving toward a malfunction. Our technicians will look at every moving piece of your system, counting your wiring, to make certain that everything is working as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace operating correctly in every season: check your air filter. Frequently inspecting and keeping up with replacing your air filter is an important to-do list item to keep your system running correctly, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter limits airflow and causes additional tension on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only decrease your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by creating extra wear and tear. Another thing to bear in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home clears through your air filter. If your filter is filthy, so is your air.

The prolonged a problem goes unattended, the more harm it can do. We want to help you stay on top of things and keep you from any unanticipated failures, which come with unexpected bills.
