Why Regular Furnace Maintenance Is Important
Your family’s safety is always top priority. This is why regular furnace maintenance is necessary. This should include:
- Cleaning and adjusting the burner assembly
- Cleaning the ignition assembly
- Inspecting the heat exchanger
- Testing safety controls
- Cleaning or replacing air filters
With proper inspection and maintenance, you can heat your home without worrying about potential safety issues.
Gas and Carbon Monoxide Leak Detection
Gas is dangerous and very combustible. A problem in the furnace can lead to a gas leak. Without proper maintenance, your furnace also runs the risk of carbon monoxide leaks which are harder to detect because the gas is colorless and odorless. High carbon monoxide and gas levels can cause nausea, headaches, and in some cases, death.
A furnace needs to have proper airflow. Restricted or limited airflow places unnecessary strain on your furnace. This can lead to increased repairs and a shortened lifespan.
Regular maintenance offers the opportunity to fully inspect your furnace. This allows you to repair any small problems that may be present before they turn into expensive repairs. To ensure fewer breakdowns or problems, your system should be lubricated and assessed to keep it running at peak performance. This will also ensure peace of mind for you and your family.
Your furnace is a major investment. Just like your vehicle, you want to make sure that you take care of it so that it lasts for many years. The following are suggestions:
Lubricate moving parts
Inspect and clean condensate drains
Test the unit’s starting capabilities
Lower Utility Bills
Regular maintenance ensures that your furnace will run more efficiently throughout the winter. Keeping every part of the furnace working properly helps increase efficiency during operation which, in turn, lowers utility bill costs.
Most manufacturers state that their warranty becomes void if the furnace is not maintained regularly. An annual furnace tune-up can satisfy that requirement and maintain your warranty.
