What to Expect from a Furnace Tune-up from ABE Heating and Cooling
If getting a furnace tune-up is not on your fall maintenance to-do list, it should be. This annual service can significantly improve the performance and longevity of your furnace, saving you money and headaches over time.
Let’s face it. Most people don’t realize there is a problem with their furnace until it stops working properly, or simply stops working. By then you could be looking at costly repairs and the inconvenience of a furnace that doesn’t work.
For a small investment once a year, you could have peace of mind, eliminate costly surprises, extend the life of your furnace and save money on energy costs.
Here is what an HVAC professional can do:
Conduct a full visual inspection and point review of all moving parts of the furnace and the duct system.
This includes inspecting the heat exchanger for cracks, checking for carbon monoxide or gas leaks, as well as looking for signs of excessive wear.
Blowout and wipe down burners and blower wheel compartment.
Burners get dirty and when they are left that way year after year they can cause poor combustion, soot, and condensation – all things that can shorten the life of your furnace. In addition, you could be paying for heat that escapes to the outside without every warming your home.
Check furnace controls, temperatures and safeties.
Controls and safeties that are not functioning properly can result in the failure of other components and can cause dangerous problems. Ensuring that the fan switch is correctly adjusted prevents nuisance cycling and wasted energy. Calibrating the thermostat ensures that your furnace is operating at the correct temperature and not running longer than necessary to heat your home.
Check the pilot and pilot assembly.
A dirty pilot can more easily go out, causing the furnace to shut down.
Check all moving and non-moving parts.
Securing loose panels, inspecting and adjusting belts and pulleys, lubricating motors and bearings all keep your furnace operating safely and efficiently.
Install a new filter. Your ABE professional will install a new filter as part of your regular furnace maintenance check. Replacing the furnace filter regularly (typically every three months) will keep dirt and debris from interfering with the furnace operation and help keep it running efficiently all season long.
