Furnace Maintenance

Furnace Maintenance: Is It Important?

Are you often calling HVAC services for something that needs repairing or investigating? If so, you may benefit from having preventative maintenance for your furnace. Furnace maintenance helps to prevent breakdowns, reduces the need for repairs, and ensures that your system runs efficiently.

To help you understand how important preventative maintenance is, here is everything you need to know about the service.

What Does Furnace Maintenance Include?

Furnace maintenance helps to prevent any issues with your heating system and increases system efficiency and longevity.

During your furnace maintenance service with 72 Degrees Air Conditioning & Heating, our technicians will perform a thorough inspection of your entire system. Our technician will also do a furnace tune-up, which includes cleaning, adjusting, lubricating, and testing the system’s components to ensure everything is working well.

Here is a checklist for what you can expect to happen during your furnace maintenance with 72 Degrees Air Conditioning & Heating:

Technician making repairs to an HVAC system.

  • Inspection of the electric wiring for any damage

  • Ensuring that the air filter is clean and working
  • Installation of new filter if needed
  • Calibration of the thermostat, if required
  • Applying lubrication to all moving parts as needed
  • Analysis of the combustion gases
  • Inspection of the heat exchanger
  • Inspect or replace belts if applicable
  • Inspect and clean the blower (any debris will be removed)
  • Examining the burner for proper ignition and flame sense
  • Inspection of the system’s safety controls
  • Testing the systems start-up cycle
  • Verification of proper gas pressure

These are the highlights of our comprehensive furnace inspection service.

How Regularly Should I Get A Furnace Tune-Up?

All furnace manufacturers recommend furnace maintenance at least once a year, at minimum. Your furnace maintenance will keep your heating system running smoothly, by reducing the number of repairs that may otherwise be needed.

The best time to book your furnace maintenance service is before the winter season begins. After a summer of not using your heating system much, it is important to make sure that everything is working as it should, so your family is comfortable throughout the cold season.

Benefits of Furnace Maintenance Service

During your tune-up, our technician will highlight and address any issues that could lead to bigger problems. This results in fewer emergency repairs being needed as your system is kept running smoothly.
