Annual maintenance of the furnace is something many homeowners easily over look or don’t think about until the furnace stops working. Annually maintaining your furnace can go a long way in preventing unexpected breakdowns. Annual maintenance will also help keep your furnace running as efficiently as possible. Providing your family many years of comfort and safety.
Many people that do think about maintenance of their furnace question whether annual maintenance is really needed. That question is answered by the furnace manufacturers themselves. All major brand manufacturers highly recommend annual maintenance of their furnaces. In the case of furnaces that are still covered under the manufacturers warranty, annual maintenance is required to keep the manufacturers warranty valid. A furnace, like any other piece of mechanical equipment will only run at its highest efficiency if it has been properly maintained and cleaned.
A furnace not covered by a warranty will still need annual maintenance to keep the furnace running at peak efficiency. Over the course of a cold Mt Prospect winter, a furnace will likely cycle close to a 1000 times. The electrical components will begin to wear out as the multiple cycles takes a toll on the them. Motor capacitors, much like batteries, will eventually need to be replaced as the number of cycles will eventually lower the capacitors output to below manufactures specifications. The heat exchanger, burners, igniter and flame sensor come in direct contact of the flames that produce the heat. Once the furnace shuts down, those components will start to cool down. The next furnace cycle will heat those components up again. The constant expansion and contracting of those parts will contribute to the eventual failure of the parts.
Many people may question whether annual maintenance is really needed. All major brand manufacturers highly recommend annual maintenance of their air conditioners. In the case of air conditioners that are still covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, annual maintenance is required to keep the manufacturer’s warranty valid. An air conditioner, like any other piece of mechanical equipment, will only run at its highest efficiency if it has been properly maintained and cleaned.
Any air conditioner, whether covered by a warranty or not, needs annual maintenance to keep it running at peak efficiency. The condenser, the part of the system that is outdoors, needs to have unobstructed airflow across its coils in order to efficiently and properly cool. These coils will accumulate dirt, pollen such as cottonwood, grass clippings and landscaping materials over the course of a hot, Mt Prospect summer. If these coils become packed with debris, the air will not properly flow across the coils. As the airflow is reduced, the compressor will need to work harder to maintain the needed cooling. This leads to reduced efficiency and can cause the premature failure of the compressor. Annual maintenance performed by Midwest Comfort Heating & Cooling, includes cleaning the outdoor condenser coil. A clean coil will help the air conditioning system run as efficiently as possible.
Annual maintenance of the air conditioning is key to keeping the air conditioning system running as efficiently as possible. Annual maintenance will also help in extending the life of the system. Providing your family many years of comfort and safety.
