Maintenance Service Checklist
Home heating equipment contains many different components and connections. During a furnace tune-up, technicians can provide a thorough inspection and tackle a variety of small problems. They can perform any minor adjustments that may be needed. A heater tune-up can allow your heating system to function as well as the day it was first installed.
When maintaining a furnace, we cover the following:
- Checking for leaks in fuel lines (for a gas furnace/oil furnace)
- Inspecting the thermocouple for damage
- Testing gas pressure, pilot lights, and burners
- Examining the heat exchanger for corrosion
- Looking for blockages in the vent system (air intakes, grilles, and ducts)
- Cleaning the blower of debris/testing blower motor power
- Inspecting the burner and flame sensor
- Checking belts for cracks, wear, and other damage
- Cleaning or replacing the air filter
- Testing safety controls and system startup
- Calibrating the thermostat as required
- Lubricating moving parts
- Inspecting, tightening, and/or replacing damaged wiring
Benefits of Heating Maintenance
Repairing or replacing a furnace can be quite expensive. A heater tune-up doesn’t only reduce the likelihood of needing major repairs or replacing equipment early. It also helps a heating system run as efficiently as it was designed to, so you end up saving money on your energy bills. Maintenance reduces the risk of your furnace breaking down when you need it most. Your furnace can also last longer, perhaps well beyond a decade, and you can stay within the terms of your warranty. Warranties often require regular maintenance to remain valid and cover any issues that occur when maintenance is provided. Furnace tune-ups are included as well, so important parts and components can be replaced as needed, before they affect the overall system.
How Often Should I Get a Furnace Tune Up or Maintenance?
Experts generally recommend furnace/heater tune-ups or maintenance at least once a year. The estimates range up to two to four times a year depending on whether your home has indoor air quality issues, or if any occupants of your home have respiratory or immune system problems. As for the best time to have furnace maintenance, before the cold season is best. You want to be sure the system is operational before winter, so you are much less likely to experience trouble during a cold snap, when your furnace or heat pump is working its hardest.
