Pre-Season Checkup for the Furnace

Give Your Home A Little TLC

Can a Quick Check Up Get You a Quick Check?

As cooler weather moves in, your home heating system begins to wake up from a nap that started last spring.  (Occasionally felt that same way myself!)

As you’d expect, once called into action, there are some old stiff joints that need lubricating, and some crusty parts that need to be cleaned.  After all, your home comfort system depends on delivering three main goals: comfort, safety, and efficiency.

All of those depend on making sure your system is cleaned and tuned before the season gets underway.  If done properly, your system doesn’t have to work as hard, which saves you money all winter by having a smaller energy bill.  It’s like the furnace writing you a check back for talking care of it!

This is short list of what we’ll check for you in a pre-season checkup:

Check out the condensate drain.  If this drain gets clogged, it could cause leaks and high humidity in your home.  This is one of our largest emergency service calls.

Inspect fuel connections.  They can become loose and cause hazardous fumes or start a fire.  A seasonal checkup ensures these connections are safe.

Apply lubricant to moving parts.  Over time, moving parts may produce friction or build up debris.  We’ll lubricate the moving pieces to ensure you save energy and stay comfortable.

There are many benefits to a seasonal fall checkup, each important in maintaining an efficient and comfortable home.  Before the cold and busy months set in, give us a call to help you prepare!
