As the cold winter months approach, it is the ideal time for furnace maintenance in Hayden, ID. The furnace is the prime component of your heating system. The heating system performs heavy-duty tasks that cause considerable wear and tear. Some telltale signs may alert you to a problem that requires professional attention, such as unusual smells, bad indoor air quality, and inefficient heating. Some issues are not readily observable, which makes regular preventative maintenance imperative. An annual furnace tune-up will ensure that it is functioning efficiently and safely. Timely maintenance, preferably in the fall, will ensure that you will not have to face an unforeseen heater malfunction or expensive repairs in peak winter.
Benefits of Furnace Maintenance
Since fuel is burned to generate heat in the furnace, there is the potential for fire hazards and gas leaks to occur. Our team of professional heating technicians will thoroughly inspect, clean, and repair the various electrical and mechanical parts of the furnace and the heating system. This will help fix any existing or potential issues, replace components that are on the verge of damage, and ensure that all safety features are in place.
A systematic tune-up involves several main steps.
- Inspecting the heat exchanger and exhaust flue for signs of corrosion
- Clearing out buildup from the combustion chamber and burners
- Checking the blower motor function, flame sensor and safety controls
- Replacing frayed wires and worn-out small components
- Lubricating moving parts and replacing the air filter
With regular and timely maintenance, you can keep your utility costs low by making sure that your furnace is functioning optimally and not drawing excess energy. You can prevent potential health hazards like gas leaks and poor indoor air quality. You can avoid fire hazards that could be caused by malfunctioning safety switches, clogged burners, or extinguished pilot light.
