It’s the coldest night of the year, and you’re warm in bed. When you drift off to sleep, you’re nice and cozy. However, when morning comes and your feet hit the floor, you suddenly find your home is chilly. You quickly realize sometime during the night, your furnace stopped working. Now, there’s nothing to do but call for emergency repair services.
This is a common scene, but it’s also preventable. Many people don’t understand how important preventive maintenance is in keeping their furnace running effectively and efficiently. As a result, too often they’re faced with breakdowns and repairs that are avoidable. In fact, ENERGY STAR indicates that maintaining heating equipment helps prevent future problems and unwanted costs.
What should I look for when it comes to furnace service for my home?
ENERGY STAR offers that there are a few important parts to furnace service that any good contractor will provide. Here’s what you should expect during your furnace service appointment:
- Check thermostat and make sure it’s programmed to most efficient settings.
- Tighten electrical connections and measure voltage and currents.
- Check condensate drains.
- Lubricate moving parts.Check system controls.
- Check gas or oil connections, pressure, burner combustion and heat exchanger.
You can change the filters yourself monthly as another measure toward maintenance. If you’re not sure how to do it, ask your technician to show you how when they perform your annual furnace service.
