Why Maintenance

Picture this scenario:  You buy a new car, and after driving this car for thousands of miles, the “change oil” light comes on.  You ignore it and attempt to drive it for five years without changing the oil.  Assuming your car even lasts this long, imagine your surprise when it finally breaks down after years of neglect.

As ridiculous as this scenario sounds, many homeowners treat their furnaces and air conditioning systems this way.  Homeowners can go for years without scheduling maintenance, only to have their furnace break on the coldest day of the year.

Annual maintenance is a great option to keep everything running efficiently.  Just like changing the oil in your car, a seasonal furnace or air conditioning cleaning allows a service technician to make sure everything continues to run smoothly.  The most important added benefit to seasonal maintenance is that a technician is able to offer you preventative suggestions prior to extreme weather, such as replacing defective parts or even replacing equipment.

Aside from cleaning and inspecting the equipment, it is important to change the air filter regularly.  A dirty air filter can restrict airflow, causing equipment to shut off prematurely.  In the worst cases, layers of dirt can settle on parts and cause motors to stop running or burners to become clogged.  If your furnace uses 1” filters, it is recommended that you change the fiberglass style every 1-2 months and the pleated style every 2-3 months.  If you have an air cleaner that uses a 3-6” filter, it is recommended that you change it every 6 months.

Econotemp offers a variety of maintenance programs, which range from the basic cleaning every year, to other added perks like having a year’s supply of filters delivered directly to your house.  Let us be the “change oil” light on your furnace and air conditioning system.  For more information on our Annual Maintenance Programs, CLICK HERE!
