A lot can go wrong with a forced air furnace. Although furnaces are built to run well for many years, time eventually takes its toll and various components begin to fail and show signs of wear. When this happens, the certified home-heating professionals at Burlington HVAC are standing by 24 hours a day to provide complete furnace service.
Homeowners often wonder how much furnace repair they can accomplish on their own. The answer is, the best thing you can do for your furnace is to be aware of odd noises, unusual odors and changes in performance, and then call us. An inexperienced “handy-person” can do a lot more harm than good to a complicated furnace system.
What happens during regular furnace service and inspection?
When our technicians visit your home to service your furnace, they’ll start by checking the system from top to bottom. If anything turns up that needs repair or replacement, they’ll take care of it.
Here are some common furnace-service tasks.
- Check the pilot light and adjust and clean, if needed.
- Check for manifold pressure issues or leaks in the gas lines.
- Inspect the combustion blower for debris that may be causing an obstruction.
- Inspect and clean the ignition system.
- Ensure the safety control is working properly.
- Check the wiring and connections in the control box to make sure they’re configured correctly.
- Clean and adjust the burner assembly and burners.
- Look closely for cracks in the heat exchanger and heating elements.
- Clean and adjust the fan switch, if necessary.
- Ensure that the combustion air openings are clean and clear.
This is just a partial list of service tasks often performed during routine maintenance visits. Your furnace’s job is to provide you with needed heat and smooth operation throughout the cold months. It’s our job to make sure it does just that.
Why annual furnace service is important
In some cases when certain furnace components begin to fail, you know right away. That’s why we advised to be aware of noises, odors and poor performance. In other cases, you won’t know that initial damage is happening until the damage has worsened to include other furnace components, at which time a major repair and component-replacement may be necessary.
By having your furnace inspected and serviced once a year, you can discover small problems before they grown into big and expensive ones. Preventative maintenance is the key to long furnace life and efficient operation, and that’s exactly what our NATE-certified HVAC specialists will provide.
