How Is Your Furnace Health?
Many people believe that as long as their furnace is running and not giving them any problems there’s no reason to pay to have a furnace tune-up. But the fact is that regular furnace maintenance is crucial to the health of your furnace. The majority of furnace breakdowns are related to a lack of regular maintenance. Over time your furnace collects dirt and dust, making it less efficient. Parts can wear out over time or require cleaning or lubrication.
Annual Furnace Tune-Up
Having an annual furnace tune-up performed by a professional, will help you catch small issues before they turn into costly repairs. Regular furnace maintenance can also save you in the form of lower utility bills. Along with the cost benefits of maintaining your furnace, your family will also be living in a much healthier home. We also check for carbon monoxide, gas leaks in and around the furnace, as well as down drafting flue gases, which can be a serious health and safety issue.
Routine Furnace Tune-Up
This dangerous situation was found while providing routine furnace service. The flue piping serving the furnace had been disconnected when new roof was install last fall. Carbon monoxide was being vented to the interior of the building rather than outside. The heated exhaust also posed a burning hazard as it melted the plastic coated insulation.
