The heavy cold along the Wasatch Range is still a few months away, but you shouldn’t delay when it comes to making winter preparations for your home. Part of that is to schedule a pre-season furnace tune-up. Your furnace is one of the hardest working appliances in your home and having a tune-up provides the following benefits:
• Ensures proper airflow: Restricted or limited airflow places unnecessary strain on your furnace that can lead to increased repairs and a shortened lifespan.
• Keeps you safe: Furnaces burn fuel to produce heat. A small gas leak could cause raised carbon monoxide levels in your home, so it is important to check for leaks.
• Reduces repairs: Regular furnace tune-ups catch small problems before they turn into major repairs.
• Improves energy efficiency: A pre-season furnace tune-up helps keep your furnace running efficiently throughout the winter, reducing energy use.
During a tune-up, the following steps are taken for preventative maintenance:
• The blower, flame sensor, air filter, pilot light assembly and exterior of the heating unit are cleaned.
• A test cycle is performance to detect any issues.
• The condensate pump is cycled.
• The flue pipe is inspected.
• All moving parts are lubricated.
• All electrical connections are inspected and tightened.
• The heat exchanger is inspected.
Having a pre-season furnace tune-up will help your furnace run efficient and keep you and your family safe this winter.
