Getting Furnace Maintenance This Fall Can Prevent Problems Later

Getting Furnace Maintenance This Fall Can Prevent Problems LaterDo you want to ensure that your furnace will work well all winter long? While no one has a crystal ball that can predict future furnace performance, you can improve your chances of having a healthy furnace throughout the winter with fall furnace maintenance. If you schedule your maintenance now, before the winter season hits in full force, you will be well-prepared for the cooler winter temperatures. You will also be able to avoid the rush that commonly occurs at the beginning of the heating season.

What to Expect

When you call an HVAC technician for a furnace service check, the contractor will check the following:

  • Combustion chamber — This needs to be vacuumed and inspected for signs of corrosion.
  • Blower compartment — This needs to be cleaned and inspected for holes.
  • Furnace filter — Your maintenance check will include a cleaning or replacement of the furnace filter.
  • Motor bearings — The tech will oil the motor bearings and inspect them to ensure they are in good working order.
  • Ductwork — Your technician will inspect the ductwork for leaks that impact the system’s efficiency.
  • Fan belts — Inspecting and replacing fan belts on belt-driven blowers costs very little, but it saves quite a bit by preventing failure later in the season.
  • CO detectors — Finally, the inspection may include a testing of the CO detector to ensure your family is safe.

A thorough maintenance check will find problems that could cause system failure, while also ensuring the system is running safely for your family.
