The experts at Stan's Heating, Inc in Ontario will inspect both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to establish that your furnace is functioning as it should this season and many seasons to come. Something you can do to keep your furnace running efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention quite a bit – check your air filter. The complications a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is clear – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is so important for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can lead to a domino effect of issues 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 extra wear and tear will decrease the life of your system. Your air filter is the front line for your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home goes through it. A polluted filter means filthy air. The more time you wait to get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system.
