Smart homeowners know that it pays to be proactive, especially when it comes to hearing your home. That’s why some of our customers in White Plains, NY gave us a call last fall. They asked Frank & Lindy to do a pre-winter check-up on their heating system because they wanted to prevent losing heat in the middle of a cold winter night. Our technician checked their system, changed the furnace filter, and made certain that the thermostat was calibrated and working properly. We were glad to hear that these customers were impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of our heating technician.
A checklist for fall furnace maintenance
Every company will have a different list of tasks and checks that they perform during their maintenance appointments. Those lists will change also according to the type of appliance being checked. Here’s a list of tasks and checks that most furnace manufacturers recommend:
Check the vent system—the vents, seams, and joints should be checked for blocks of leaks.
Check at the termination outside, and the connections to the furnace.
Check for a tight seal at the blower access door
Make sure that fresh air intake grills are not blocked
Check heat exchanger for corrosion and rust
Check the drainage system
Check the burners for clogs of soot, grime and dirt
Check the blower wheel for debris and perform an amp draw test on the blower motor.
Check the wiring and connections
Change the air filter (although this needs to be done approximately 4 times a year)
Lubrication of any moving parts, as needed
