Mad City: Fall Furnace Maintenance

The cold weather has ascended upon us. If you haven’t already turned your heater on to beat the icy chill, make sure you get your furnace inspected before you do! There is still time to beat the rush before HVAC companies are booked to the rim with maintenance and emergency appointments. Here’s what to expect when the pros arrive at your homes. Be sure to check out the awesome video above for a quick recap of these Fall Furnace Maintenance tips!

TESTING

The pros will test for leaks and heating efficiency. They’ll make sure your thermostat is in good condition for starters. They’ll also turn your unit from heat to air to make sure everything is in tip-top shape. Testing for issues is one of the most important things you can do during this season. Make sure you get it done ASAP!

FILTERS

The pros will also inspect your filter making sure nothing is clogged. Maintaining the cleanliness of your air filter is very important. Filters should be changed out every 90 days for the average suburban home. Add a pet to the mix, filters should be changed every 60 days. If you have allergies or more than one pet your filter should be changed every 20-45 days.

CLEANING

Your selected company will also clean the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is one of the most important parts of your furnace and is responsible for heating the air. It’s also very expensive if it needs to be replaced averaging between $600 to $3,000. It’s very important to make sure your heat exchanger is running at its best and to catch problems before they require a replacement. The pros will check for any issues or cracks!

LUBRICATE

The last thing the pros will do is lubricate the blower motor and test the igniter switch! The blower motor contains fans that if not properly lubricated or if it becomes dirty it will start to squeak!  Get that motor lubricated!
