furnace and boiler maintenance in Mt Horeb WIEssential Inspections and Maintenance Tips

Experts suggest that you have an annual inspection on your furnace and boiler. This will keep it running at its peak capacity. It is also important to be aware of regular maintenance. The most common being to replace your filter on a regular basis. Experts suggest that you change them at least every 3 months. You may want to do it more often if you have other infiltrates to contend with. If you have pets or someone who smokes in the house are good reasons to change the filter more often. If you have done some renovations lately in the house is another good reason. If someone in the house has asthma, you may want to consider changing more often as well. Dusting and vacuuming the air returns and the heat registers is good practice. Don’t store items in front of registers. Watch the exterior condenser, keep it free of debris like leaves, twigs, or other debris. 

Doing basic maintenance on your own will help keep your furnace and boiler running. There are still certain things that only a professional can help with. Here is a list of issues that may arise. It is important to be aware of these issues. Watch for them, educate yourself with some of the common reasons you may have issues.
