  • Understanding the Importantance of Furnace Maintenance

    To explain a little further why furnace maintenance is so important and why all HVAC manufacturers and installers stress it needs to be done by a professional every season, we present the following:
    safety 1

    Safety Comes First

    Most of the furnaces we service are fueled by natural gas. Anything that burns natural gas to produce heat is far more unpredictable and dangerous if it’s not being checked regularly by a professional. During a furnace maintenance tune-up, our technicians thoroughly inspect the system’s heat exchanger and its gas line to make sure there isn’t any sort of carbon monoxide leakage.

    Maintains Manufacturer’s Warranty

    With a new installation usually comes a manufacturer’s warranty. Many manufacturers require routine maintenance to keep the warranty valid. If the buyer forgets to have it done even once, the warranty is worthless. We strongly suggest homeowners play it smart by playing it safe.

    Lower Heating Costs

    With the passing of each season of useage, furnaces develop wear and tear from the strain of producing heat over time, while dirt and dust build up on the system and around it. This greatly diminishes a furnace’s efficiency as it needs more power than before to provide the same level of comfort and heat.

    Prolongs Life of Furnace

    The only way to effectively ensure a furnace lasts for as long as possible is to regularly utilize seasonal maintenance. Without proper care, furnaces usually only last half as long as they were designed to. The cost of a new system is always far, far more than a maintenance visit.

    How to Prepare Your Furnace For Winter

    Breakdowns can easily be prevented if you know how to prepare your furnace for the winter. With the following tips, you can ensure your furnace remains in working order all winter long.

    1.) Turn thermostat to ‘heat’

    Test your furnace by turning the heat on and setting the temperature a couple of degrees higher than the current room temperature. If you don’t hear the heat kick on within a minute, you may want to call a professional.

    2.) Clean debris and dust from unit

    Residue buildup on the burners could lead to blockages, rust, and other serious damage. These fundamental parts must be kept clean and free of dust for optimal performance.

    3.) Cover the AC condenser.

    Unless your HVAC is a heat pump (in which case, don’t cover it at all because it runs all year), cover the condenser to protect it from the winter elements.

    4.) Have your furnace inspected by a professional

    A professional inspection is one of the best ways to prevent your furnace from breaking down when you need it most. You can even prepare months ahead. Before the temperature outside gets too cold, schedule an appointment with us. Our inspection will be able to highlight any potential issues that may arise when you first turn your furnace on for the season.

    5.) Check and replace your air filters regularly

    Most furnace experts recommend replacing the air filters in your furnace every 2 to 3 months. By also checking the filter frequently, you can monitor the amount of debris collected and determine the best time frame for replacement. A clean air filter ensures air can flow through properly and your furnace will not have to overwork to heat your home. Learn how to replace your air filter.
