Regular furnace maintenance is usually recommended to ensure proper functioning of the unit as well as improved efficiency. While there are several things you can do on your own for proper functioning of your furnace, annual furnace maintenance should be dedicated to a heating expert, as they are able to check every single detail and perhaps fix any potential problems before it is too late.
Annual furnace maintenance is especially critical ahead of winter because this is when the furnace will be needed the most. If you have scheduled furnace maintenance by your appointed technician, you will do well to familiarize yourself with a checklist of the tasks that the heating professional will perform.
Here are some of the most important tasks that are mandatory for your HVAC contractor to perform during maintenance:
After the Inspection
When the HVAC technician has completed the inspection of your furnace, they will give you a report on your system detailing the replacements and repairs that are recommended. Although these recommendations can appear like frivolous expenses, they are very important because they will not only prevent expensive future repairs but can also extend the life of your furnace. If you are not sure whether you should follow the recommendations or not, be sure to get a second opinion from a second professional heating expert.
It is important to ensure that you leave all repairs, replacements and maintenance to a certified HVAC contractor. This is especially important where the furnace is under warranty. Do not hesitate to refer to the warranty to get more details on the parts that you can use, professional services as well as the do-it-yourself tasks to ensure that you do not accidentally void it.
One of the most important benefits of having your annual furnace maintenance is provision of safety. This is because gas leaks as well as improper oil and gas connections can pose a hazard. When a furnace has worn, dirty or misaligned components there may be need for more repairs in the future even as the furnace’s functionality deteriorates.
