Don’t Wait Until You Really Need a Furnace Service Call

woman cold at homeFor many of us it doesn’t seem like we pay a whole lot of attention to our furnaces until they break down.  This can be a costly and even dangerous approach to take when having an annual furnace checkup can save you time, money, and keep your family safe. It will also mean your family will stay comfortable during the colder winter months.

Annual Furnace Maintenance Pays Off

A gas furnace should be serviced at least once a year preferably in the fall. Annual maintenance, including a thorough examination and cleaning of the parts that commonly malfunction, like the air filter, the fan, the pilot light, and the heat exchanger, can minimize the risk of unexpected breakdowns.

Some of the specific tasks involved in a furnace maintenance service call include:

    Performing an annual furnace tune up will save you time, money and major inconvenience if your furnace stops working on a cold winter day.

    Inspecting the vent system and air intake grills

  • Checking the heat exchanger for signs of damage or corrosion
  • Examining and cleaning the blower
  • Checking the blower motor and testing its amp draw
  • Tightening electrical connections and replacing damaged wiring
  • Checking the burner and flame sensor
  • Examining the belts for any signs of damage or cracks
  • Inspecting the thermostat and calibrating it as needed
  • Lubricating all moving parts in the heating system
  • Cleaning or replacing the air filter
  • Checking and testing the system’s safety controls and startup cycle

Additionally, for oil or gas furnaces:

  • Examining fuel lines for potential leaks
  • Checking and testing gas pressure, the burner, and the pilot
  • Inspecting the thermocouple

Additional Benefits of a Furnace Checkup

Staying on top of routine furnace maintenance can also provide other ongoing benefits.

  • A maintained furnace will run more efficiently and save on your monthly energy bills.
  • Many furnace warranties include stipulations requiring regular maintenance. For those with this requirement, routine tune-ups will keep your warranty valid.
  • A well-maintained furnace will extend the life of your furnace, letting you get the most from your investment.

Money Well Spent

Most HVAC contractors offer special discounts for routine HVAC Fall furnace inspections.  For not a whole lot of money you can extend the life of your furnace, ensure that it is operating safely and efficiently, and provide your family with the peace of mind that they will stay comfortable and warm this winter.
