Having to pay for unnecessary repairs isn’t superior on anyone’s to-do list, that’s why thinking ahead with furnace maintenance is so important. The best time to stop a problem is before it begins.

Regular furnace maintenance from the team at Hopper Heating and Air will mend any present problems and diagnose and tackle any problems that could otherwise lead to furnace repair.

Routine furnace maintenance is as important as getting the oil changed in your car. You wouldn’t go consecutive years without getting an oil change – the same applies to furnace maintenance. As with any mechanical system, there are numerous of things that should be checked so they don’t go wrong, and the experts at Hopper Heating and Air in Shelby will examine all those moving pieces to guarantee they aren’t moving toward a malfunction. Our specialists will look at every moving function of your system, including your wiring, to guarantee that everything is functioning as it should.

There is also a easy thing that you can do as a homeowner to keep your furnace functioning efficiently throughout the year: check your air filter. Frequently checking and keeping up with replacing your air filter is a vital to-do list item to keep your system operating efficiently, avoiding unexpected furnace repair. A dirty air filter restricts airflow and creates additional strain on your furnace to keep up with your thermostat. This will not only lessen your furnace’s efficiency, it can also shorten the life of your system by causing additional wear and tear. Another thing to keep in mind is your indoor air quality. All of the air in your home travels through your air filter. If your filter is dirty, so is your air.
