The experts at 1st Choice Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Lake Forest 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 operating efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The troubles a dirty air filter can cause are endless, and the solution is easy – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is imperative for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can cause a domino effect of troubles within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which hinders your system’s efficiency and the additional wear and tear will shorten 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 flows through it. A polluted filter means dirty air.

The longer you wait to fix a problem, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address problems before they become a breakdown, along with an unexpected bill.
