Nothing is worse than a furnace that goes on the fritz during the middle of a cold winter’s night. Waking up to an ice cold house is not the way to start the day. Preventative maintenance on a furnace with a thorough inspection can help to eliminate a problem like this from occurring. A yearly tune-up on a furnace will make it operate at peak performance and will reduce its energy usage. This can save someone hundreds of dollars each year in energy costs. A maintenance agreement may be available for those individuals that want to always keep their furnace operating great for years to come.
Furnaces in New Haven IN can benefit from a tune-up that includes:
* Tightening of all electrical connections.
* Cleaning of the exterior of the furnace.
* Clean and adjust the gas burner.
* Vacuum and brush the combustion chamber and heat exchanger.
* Inspect the heat exchanger with a camera for any signs of cracks, rust or problem areas.
* Lubricate fan motors and any other parts that require lubrication.
* Clean, test, calibrate and level the thermostat.
* Clean or replace the furnace filter.
* Inspect and test all safety controls.
* Inspect and test relays, contactors, and transformers and measure their performance.
* Measure the electrical voltage, component, resistance, and amperage.
* Measure the heating system output.
* And much more.
A furnace that has a cracked heat exchanger will have to have the entire furnace replaced. A technician can show an owner the inside of the heat exchanger with a camera. A cracked heat exchanger can cause oily soot to be sent through the house, and a gas furnace could result in dangerous carbon monoxide entering a home. Carbon monoxide is a tasteless and odorless gas that can make people ill and even cause death. Every home and business that operates gas appliances should have a carbon monoxide detector.
