The experts at Lycoming Heating Company in Williamsport will check out 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 running efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention a lot – check your air filter. The troubles a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is simple – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is imperative for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can lead to a domino effect of problems within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which negatively effects your system’s efficiency and the extra wear and tear will decrease the life of your system. Your air filter also impacts your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home goes through it. A filthy filter means polluted 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 an unplanned bill.
