How Clean Is Your Furnace and Why Does It Matter?


The drop in nighttime temperatures in the last week had many of us firing up our furnaces for the first time this season. Hopefully, you had maintenance conducted before the season began. However, if you did not then you skipped one very important furnace task: cleaning. But why do furnaces need to be clean? Won’t yours work just as well if it has a little bit of dirt or dust around it?

The Importance of a Clean Furnace

The short answer is no, your furnace will not work as well if it isn’t properly cleaned. By having your furnace maintained and cleaned, you can save a significant amount of money on heating costs and even potentially avoid expensive repairs in the future.

Dirt and debris impacts a few different components of your furnace: the filter system, the blower, and the furnace motor. Addressing the first component—the filter—is something you can and should do on your own. A dirty furnace filter prevents the heating system from providing you with optimum airflow, making the system work harder than it should have to in order to warm your home.

The furnace filter should be something that you change every 1-3 months during periods of use, depending on the level of pollutants and contaminants in your home. Properly cleaning (and adjusting, if needed) your blower and motor is a task that must be conducted by a licensed and trained professional if you want to ensure a properly functioning heating system.

In order to ensure the efficiency and effectiveness of this system for the years to come, be sure to schedule your next maintenance appointment as soon as possible if you haven’t already.

Called Advanced Home Services to schedule a routine furnace cleaning. Stewart did a great job and even tagged all our gas and water line so we would know which lines to shut off in case of an emergency. He was very friendly and helpful. I will be calling these guys for any future plumbing and heating issues that may pop up.

Shannon

When Robert C came for a routine check found a leak under my kitchen sink. He discovered the main source of the problem and had the time to fix it right away before it became worse. He did a fantastic job and went above and beyond what was required. He was very friendly and so helpful and did a fantastic job.
