It is important for your furnace to be in top shape in the winter. Gettting a furnace checkup at least once a year is highly recommended in order to make sure your heating system is operating perfectly and provides the right amount of heat in your home. This maintenance procedure should be taken seriously in order to ensure safety as well.
Inspecting your venting pipes and draining tubes. The technician will check if they are properly tied and arched. Also, take the opportunity to note for any rotten egg or sulfur-like smell. This distinct odor indicates gas leak and can cause fire explosion if not detected early.
Meanwhile, they will assess defective thermostat wires by yanking the wires slightly. They should be securely snugged and close-fitted. Keep in mind to turn off the power before beginning your inspection.
Ensure the furnace is clean, particularly the filters. Accumulation of dust and dirt can hamper the furnace’s optimum performance. Filters should be kept unclogged and should be replaced regularly so as to prevent the system from overworking and eventually overheating. This routine can help you save a lot on your energy bill and can spare you from spending on a full HVAC unit replacement.
Having a professional furnace technician to tune-up your furnace is also a great idea. For a thorough checkup on your heating system, contact Central Plumbing and Heating.
