The Importance of Furnace Maintenance

A tuned-up furnace offers several benefits to you and your home. It operates more efficiently, which means it will heat your home evenly and as desired, creating the comfort you want for your space. In addition, operating more efficiently could also reduce your energy consumption. A system that's tuned up does not use as much energy to reach the desired comfort level in the home, and it may even maintain that temperature longer without needing to turn back on. That means lower utility bills that any property owner can appreciate.

There's more. A furnace tune-up can also help ensure that each of the system's components is in good working order. If there's a problem found during this process, it can be addressed quickly and, often, inexpensively. If you don't tackle it now, it could worsen over time until it becomes an expensive emergency repair.

By having your system inspected, you can save money on energy, reduce the need for repairs, and keep your system operating at its best. There is also less risk of needing to replace it early.

Key Components of a Furnace Tune-Up

When you have our team out for a tune-up and safety check, the work is adjusted to meet the specifics of your system. We follow all manufacturer recommendations to ensure that all preventative maintenance tasks are properly addressed. Some of the tasks that are part of the process include:

  • Inspecting and replacing air filters
  • Checking the function and programming of the thermostat
  • Cleaning and lubricating all moving parts
  • Examining the ignition system for proper functionality
  • Inspecting the heat exchanger for proper functionality

Most of the time, if there are any signs of problems during this process, we can fix them right away. These repairs include cleaning the ignition system to ensure it fires correctly and adjusting the thermostat to be more efficient for you and your home. These tasks can help to minimize the risk of a breakdown later.

Safety Measures for Furnace Operation

Functionality is always important — but so is ensuring your home is safe. Your home's furnace is a major component that requires maintenance and upkeep to ensure it operates safely. Our safety check recommendations will center around what we notice during our call out to your home. Some of the areas we focus on include:

  • Installing and updating your carbon monoxide detectors, including checking their overall functionality
  • Ensuring there are no combustible materials near the furnace or the exterior vents that could become a fire hazard
  • Schedule a professional inspection if any concerns with your system that may require more advanced care

By taking these safety measures now, you can reduce the risk that your furnace will cause a fire, fail, or allow dangerous gases to build up in your home.
