When temperatures stay above 80, the last thing you’re probably thinking about is your furnace. You’re probably thinking about sipping on a cocktail poolside.
But you should be thinking about your furnace.
Winter Is Coming
While the dog days of summer might make fall feel like a far-off event, it’s coming around the corner faster than you think. And with the fall comes a drop in temperatures. Trust us – it’ll be nice to have the peace of mind that that first chilly morning that you wake up and turn your furnace on, it works.
The best time to be calling someone to take a look at your furnace is not when every homeowner in the state is doing the same. Calling someone to give your furnace a once over now is the best way to ensure that you’ll be ready when a cold snap strikes. Furnace breakdowns are not only inconvenient and uncomfortable, but they can also be costly. Regular furnace maintenance can help prevent a big breakdown and an even bigger repair bill.
Furnaces Need Routine Maintenance Once a Year
Did you know that?
Regular maintenance ensures that your furnace is kept in tiptop shape. Think of your furnace like a car. Regular oil changes ensure that your car lasts well beyond 100,000 miles. Regular furnace maintenance ensures that your furnace will keep heating your house for years to come.
Not to mention regular furnace maintenance improves efficiency, reduces electricity costs, and prevents breakdowns. And all of that translates directly into savings you can take to the bank.
It can even help keep your family safe by revealing carbon monoxide leaks. Carbon monoxide leaks are responsible for over 500 deaths in the U.S. each year, so this is a great service that offers some extra peace of mind.
How to Choose the Right Heating Technician
You’ll find that there’s a wide variety between services offered by different HVAC experts. You’ll want to look for a company that offers NATE-certified technicians that can clearly list what services will be included under the title of an annual maintenance check up.
These are some of the services that should be routinely provided:
• Lubricating moving parts
• Changing filter
• Checking settings, including the thermostat and start up and shut down controls
• Inspecting electrical connections and tightening any loose parts
• Performing a carbon monoxide check
• Inspecting condensate drain for blockage
• Cleaning the heating system
• Checking blower access door for a tight seal
• Inspection for rust or corrosion
• Inspection for accurate ignition and flame
• Cleaning blower wheel
This isn’t an exhaustive list. There might be more services your technician will provide under their service. It’s important to know what exactly they’re offering before you agree.
