Your furnace is a mechanical system with a lot of moving parts that need to be checked to ensure you’re not headed towards a breakdown this winter. The experts at Goode Bros AC & Heating in Katy will inspect both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to ensure your furnace is that your furnace is functioning as it should this season and many seasons to come.

Something you can do to keep your furnace operating efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The complications a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is easy – 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 restricts air flow which makes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which negatively effects your system’s efficiency and the added 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 polluted filter means dirty air.

The longer 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 issues before they become a breakdown, along with an unexpected bill.
