Streamwood, IL – December 18, 2020 – On the Mark Heating and Air announces the vitally important steps that homeowners can take to keep from dealing with an emergency repair to their furnace.
The most basic step to keep furnaces from breaking down is to simply check the filter regularly. Furnace filters perform probably the most important function in a furnace by keeping out dirt. Nothing stops a furnace quicker than dirt. If the air cannot flow because the filter is clogged, the furnace cannot work.
On the Mark Heating and Air also recommends the next logical step – test out the furnace before it gets cold. Simply change your setting to “heat” and turn up the temperature. If the furnace doesn’t kick on, the homeowner has time to schedule a Streamwood furnace repair well before it becomes an emergency.
While homeowners are running this pre-winter check, they should not only check to make sure the furnace runs, they should also listen to their furnace. If they hear a new noise, that’s a red flag. If the furnace makes a banging noise or a squeaking noise, it is important to have a professional check it out.
Homeowners might not think of the next step on their own. They should go around the house and check the vents. It’s easy for vents to get accidentally closed or blocked.
Finally, the most important thing to do is to have a yearly tune up. Professional Streamwood furnace technicians can find problems before they cause an emergency later.
