Now that October is nearly here and the summer heat is behind us, it’s time to start thinking about scheduling your annual furnace tune-up. Preventative maintenance is the key to making sure your furnace runs efficiently, while also helping to prevent costly repairs, but do you know what to expect during a furnace service appointment?
When you book your furnace tune-up, a certified technician will inspect and clean key components such as the burner and heat exchanger. The heating professional will also ensure that the system is free of rust, corroded electrical contacts, frayed wires or other problems that could lead to safety issues or a furnace breakdown. A technician will also check to make sure the venting system is operating as it should without any blockages or leaks, while checking the drainage system for any issues.
A furnace tune-up will also include a full inspection of the blower wheel, the seal on the blower access door, the air filters and fresh air intake grilles to ensure everything is properly operating. It’s also a good idea to have your ductwork inspected and cleaned so you can make sure there aren’t any obstructions or leaks that could negatively affect the system’s performance and your home comfort.
Annual furnace service from a certified and trusted professional is absolutely essential for prolonging the life of your heating system and avoiding major problems down the road.
