Furnace Maintenance and Servicing

Manufacturer’s recommend regular servicing and inspection for natural gas furnaces. Scheduling regular maintenance, typically early autumn, to maintain the units peak energy efficiency and safe operation and extend the life-cycle of the furnace.

Today’s furnaces are far more complex than older units as they feature air inducers, electronic ignition sensors, pressure switches, and exhaust flow monitoring. Because of their complexity most home owners today need licensed HVAC experts to thoroughly inspect and service the heating system.

Maintenance You Can Do

There are some simple procedures you can do annually to help keep your furnace run efficiently.

  • Change or clean the filter. Check your owners manual to verify if the filter change is recommended every 3 or 6 months. Keep in mind if you have air conditioning, pets or lots of dust build-up in your home you may consider changing the filter more frequently  >>>read more about filters
  • If your furnace has a fan belt, shut the circuit breaker to the furnace off and turn the power switch for the furnace to the off position. Inspect the fan belt looking to see if there are cracks or for excessive wear and tear. Once completed turn the circut breaker on and then turn the furnace power switch back to the “on” position.
  • Inspect the ductwork to make sure all the joints are sealed.
  • Ensure there aren’t any obstructions on the air and return vents.
  • Keep the area around the furnace clear of any debris or flammable material.
