Heating & Furnace Maintenance

Proper Heating & Furnace Set-Up:

We will ensure the gas pressures are set to manufacturers’ specifications (per our elevation). Most of our customers don’t realize that all furnaces come set at 5 PSI. That is what the northern states need for their climate in order for their furnaces to heat correctly. Our elevation needs 3.5 PSI gas pressure. This gas pressure being set from the factory at 5 PSI and installers not being aware that these pressures and fan speeds need to be adjusted leads to very early furnace failures, danger to homeowners, and early furnace replacements. While most of our visits to homes are due to a failure, they are also during peak usage when there are a lot of other service requests. These things never get evaluated and set up correctly.

Why Get Annual Furnace And AC Maintenance?

Simply put, it keeps your furnace running smoothly. We will ensure the gas pressures are set to manufacturers specifications (per our elevation), inspect parts, lubricate parts that require it, check the unit’s electrical wiring, clean important sensors, check to ensure CO levels are safe, check for temperature rise per manufacturer specs, inspect the duct system, and much more.

Annual furnace maintenance keeps the furnace working reliably. While there is no such thing as an absolute guarantee, annual inspection and maintenance of your furnace can allow the technician to spot problems that may be small now but could become serious if left untreated.

Benefits of Annual Furnace Maintenance

  • Lower Utility Bills: Annual furnace tune-ups can save you money on your electric or gas bill
  • Extended Equipment Life: Furnaces that are well maintained can last up to 50% longer than furnaces that never get tuned up.
  • Fewer Repairs: With proper maintenance, you will have fewer issues with your unit - saving your future self time and money.
  • Improved Safety: Regular tune-ups can prevent cracks forming in your heat exchanger and allowing combustion gases to escape.

Another benefit is that the temperature in your home remains regulated. We verify and calibrate the thermostat (if equipped with an anticipator), to make sure that the furnace heats your home properly and reliably. Our technicians always aim to educate you on home dynamics and how to overcome hot and cold spots in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions

1How often should I schedule furnace maintenance?
Regular furnace maintenance ensures optimal performance, energy efficiency, and longevity. Here's a general guideline for scheduling furnace maintenance: Annual maintenance: It is recommended to schedule professional furnace maintenance at least once a year. Ideally, this should be done before the start of the heating season to ensure the furnace is in good condition. Seasonal usage: In Texas, we have milder winters and typically use our furnace less frequently; you may choose to schedule maintenance every two years. However, regular maintenance is essential to address potential issues and maintain efficiency.
2What does furnace maintenance involve?
Furnace maintenance typically includes a series of tasks performed by a professional HVAC technician to ensure the proper functioning and safety of the unit. Here are some everyday maintenance tasks: Cleaning: The technician will clean the furnace components, including the burners, heat exchanger, blower motor, and filters, to remove dust, debris, and any buildup that can hinder performance. Inspection: Various components, such as the ignition system, gas lines, belts, and electrical connections, will be inspected for wear, damage, or potential issues. Lubrication: Moving parts that require lubrication, such as motors, fans, and bearings, will be lubricated to reduce friction and ensure smooth operation.
3Why is furnace maintenance important?
Regular furnace maintenance offers several benefits and is important for performance and safety. Here are the key reasons why furnace maintenance is essential: Improved efficiency: Proper maintenance ensures that the furnace operates at its optimal efficiency, which can result in lower energy consumption and reduced heating costs. Extended lifespan: Regular maintenance helps identify and address minor issues before they develop into significant problems, prolonging the furnace's lifespan and reducing the need for costly repairs or premature replacement. Safety: Maintenance includes inspections of critical safety components, such as the ignition system and gas lines, helping to prevent potential hazards such as gas leaks or carbon monoxide leaks.
4Can I perform furnace maintenance myself?
While there are some basic maintenance tasks that homeowners can perform themselves, it is generally recommended to hire a professional for comprehensive furnace maintenance. Here's why: Expertise: HVAC technicians have the knowledge and experience to identify potential issues, make adjustments, and ensure the furnace's proper functioning. They are trained to handle potentially hazardous situations safely. Equipment and tools: Professionals have specialized tools and equipment for thorough maintenance, such as combustion analyzers and electrical testing devices. Warranty considerations: Some furnace warranties may require professional maintenance to remain valid. Hiring a professional ensures that you comply with warranty terms and conditions.
5What are the benefits of regular furnace maintenance?
Regular furnace maintenance offers numerous benefits beyond ensuring heat during the winter season. Here are the key advantages of regular furnace maintenance: Energy savings: Properly maintained furnaces operate more efficiently, reducing energy consumption and lowering heating costs. Improved comfort: Well-maintained furnaces provide consistent heating, ensuring comfort throughout your home. Peace of mind: Regular maintenance helps identify potential problems early on, reducing the likelihood of unexpected breakdowns and providing peace of mind during the winter season.
