When it comes to furnace maintenance, any time is a good time, with Autumn being the most popular time. Ideally, you should have your maintenance completed once per year. Having furnace maintenance completed on an annual basis will keep your furnace in top operating condition all year round. Even when not heating, the furnace blower motor itself works in hand with your air conditioner to move air throughout your home. What all is involved in furnace maintenance? Items covered include:
- Gas pressure testing
- Checking of heat exchanger for cracks
- Replacement of thermocouple or flame sensor
- Replacement of furnace filter
- Wiping down of unit inside and out
- Combustion gas testing
- Carbon Monoxide testing
- Burner assembly cleaning
These are just few of the items that Sears Heating & Cooling goes over when completing your maintenance for you. Some of the most important factors we check for are cracked heat exchangers and carbon monoxide. As a furnace’s heat exchanger ages, it is common for small cracks to form that can leak carbon monoxide into the air stream that comes out of your homes air vents. By having maintenance completed on an annual basis, you can rest assured knowing you and your family are safe from this deadly gas.
