Like any other system, your furnace needs to be constantly serviced for it to perform at peak efficiency. Furnace maintenance allows you to discover problems that your system might be facing. Preventative repairs can prevent small issues from turning into major expenses. Here are some of the tasks that our technicians will carry out during furnace maintenance.
For motors that are serviceable, our technicians will lubricate the motor bearings and other moving parts as needed. The lubricant helps reduce friction between the moving parts, allowing them to slide over each other smoothly. Lack of lubrication can result in wear and tear of parts and force you to replace them. For motors that are not serviceable, out technicians will check the bearing end play.
Inspect the Burner
Our technicians will clean and inspect the burners, which is where combustion takes place. The process involves checking the burner flame and making adjustments to ensure that the furnace achieves the proper burn.
Inspect the Gas Line
Gas leaks can be hazardous, but you can trust our team to ensure that your gas connections are in good shape. They will check for any exposed gas lines in the mechanical room and inside the furnace. If they suspect a leak—usually by smell—they will track down the leak and repair it.
Inspect the Heat Exchanger
The heat exchanger is responsible for separating you from the harmful gases in your system. Our technicians will inspect the heat exchanger to help ensure you are breathing healthy air. We also recommend the installation of a carbon monoxide detector to alert you of a leak.
The Controls and Safeties
Your furnace is incorporated with multiple safety devices designed to turn the system off in case of a malfunction. Our team will service and test the controls and safeties, ensuring that your system operates safely while maintaining maximum efficiency.
Other parts that our technicians will inspect and service include:
- The furnace filter wash or change
- Flue pipe
- Electrical connections
- The vent system
- The thermostat
- Check and clean the condensate, trap, pump
- Clean flame sensor
- Clean pilot if equipped
