Is your furnace as old as your home? A furnace system is built for long lasting durability; that said, though, every unit will eventually hit a point where one component or another fails and renders the entire system inoperable or drastically impedes its output. Its not a matter of “if” but “when” and when it happens, be ready to contact heating and air conditioner repair in Newcastle, WA.
Even if everything appears to operate without a hitch, you still need to perform regular maintenance. Most air confitioner repair experts and manufacturers recommend at least one inspection from a certified technician every year. This will ensure that the furnace runs optimally, thus promoting energy efficiency and decreasing health risks.
Repair companies estimate that roughly 75% of calls are due to the furnace not producing enough heat, and experts almost always attribute this to lack of maintenance, or in some cases homeowners opting to inspect the furnace themselves in lieu of bringing in an expert.
Annual inspections can also prove to be a life saver. A routine checkup can reveal a leakage, which can emit dangerous carbon monoxide and go completely unnoticed because the gas is colorless and odorless.
15,000 people are hospitalized each year due to carbon monoxide exposure. Furnace repair in Newcastle, WA from a technician can yield a crack or chip in the heat exchanger, which is easy to miss due to the component’s placement in the rear and behind thick coils.
