There are few things so irksome as turning on your faucet first thing in the morning to get washed up, only to discover that there is barely a trickle coming from it.

“Dirt don’t hurt!”

We’ve likely all heard this phrase or some variation of it. And while, yes, getting a little dirty won’t kill you, the same cannot be said for your heater. The internal components of your heater actually need to stay as clean as possible to operate well. A little bit of build-up won’t force your heater to break down (which is good since the combustion process in a furnace creates its own residue) but a lot of dirt collecting over time can create a variety of problems.

The issue created by an overly dirty heater can be counteracted with professional heating repair in Irmo, SC. We can provide you with the services you need to get your heater back in order. Curious about what a little dirt can do? We’ve provided that information for you below!

If you need maintenance or repairs for your heating system, make sure you contact Fulmer Heating & Cooling.
