Falling leaves and temperature drops in Rosemead are two telltale signs that it’s time to turn off the AC and kick on the furnace. Before you power up the heater, it’s important to have it inspected. The smallest issues can lead to huge losses of energy, high heating bills, and poor indoor comfort as you try to stay warm this winter. During an inspection, a technician will perform a variety of maintenance tasks that are crucial to its efficiency and lifespan.
All furnaces need their filters changed on a regular basis. Dirty filters make it difficult for the heating system to maintain proper airflow, which can lead to major damage and energy waste.
A miscalibrated thermostat can wreak havoc on your energy bills and indoor comfort while also causing unnecessary wear and tear on the furnace as it struggles to keep your home warm. During maintenance, a technician will calibrate the thermostat to ensure its accuracy.
Gas Line Inspections and Burner Cleanings
During maintenance on a gas furnace, a technician will inspect gas lines for leaks and blockages as well as clean the burners. This cleaning is crucial to the furnace’s ability to provide even and efficient heating.
Lubricating the moving parts of a furnace on a regular basis keeps the appliance from overheating by allowing the parts to move freely without rubbing against one another. A well-oiled furnace is more efficient, lasts longer, and causes less wear and tear on its moving parts.
Check the Safety Features
One of the most important parts of furnace maintenance is having a professional check the functionality of all its safety mechanisms. If the furnace ever has a problem, such as a gas leak, or starts overheating, these controls will automatically turn the unit off.
