Furnace Service

We’ll get the job done right the first time.

The first thing to know when maintaining a home’s heating system is that annual service is a must. There are a lot of potential issues that could impact a furnace in a negative way. Most of those issues can be alleviated with annual maintenance. This is essentially a tune-up for your furnace. It is a way of cleaning the furnace and ensuring its components are in proper working order. Air necessities has you covered with top-quality furnace service at an affordable price.

Identifying Potential Issues

A service technician from Air Necessities will come out to your home and conduct an inspection of your furnace. That inspection will identify any potential issues while also addressing any maintenance tasks. The process includes the following:

  • Fan cleaning
  • Changing air filter
  • Comprehensive system check
  • Soot removal
  • Heat exchanger check
  • Test gas pressure and ignition system
  • Lubrication of ball bearings
  • Clearing condensate drain
  • Calibration of thermostat
  • Check voltage

Importance of Regular Maintenance

Furnace service is something that should not be overlooked for too long. It is a means of improving the functionality of your furnace and that equates to higher energy efficiency and longer life expectancy. Regular furnace service can wind up lowering your monthly energy bills and having a furnace last longer saves on the eventual cost of replacement. This type of service is an investment in your home heating system as it provides financial benefits.

On the opposite end, a furnace that is not regularly maintained could wind up costing you when it comes to future repairs. While you may save on the cost of annual maintenance, you could wind up paying out more money in costly repairs while also seeing higher monthly energy bills because of a lack of efficiency.

When your furnace might need a review

As a general rule, it is recommended that a furnace be serviced once a year at a minimum. This goes for gas furnaces as well as electric furnaces. However, there are other signs that furnace service would be a good move. One of the key parts of the furnace service process involves cleaning a lot of the components. Simple wear and tear can lead to a buildup of dirt, grime, dust and other unpleasantness.

Moving into a new home should come with regular service to your furnace. This will give you an idea of what kind of working order it is in and what parts could be susceptible to repair. It’s important to know where your furnace stands as you settle into a new home. Here are some other signs that furnace service is a good idea:

Poor airflow – When the airflow is lacking throughout a home, it is typically a sign that the furnace needs to be cleaned. This is noticeable when one room is warmer than others or there are cold spots in certain areas. While this may seem like cause for concern, a simple cleaning could be the solution.

Water in ducts – It is not a good sign to find water in your ducts as it can cause damage and provide the perfect environment for mold to grow. This can also lead to health problems if left unattended. When an air filter is damp, it is also a sign that maintenance should be done to your furnace.

Furnace begins to age – No furnace will last forever and when they start reaching 10-15 years of age, there could be a lapse in performance. Having annual service conducted on your furnace after it reaches 10 years of age is considered standard. There is going to be more chances of a breakdown in older furnaces.
