Scheduling furnace maintenance is necessary to protect the comfort and efficiency of your home in Lincoln. When an HVAC professional comes to your home, there are a number of tasks that they will perform to ensure that your furnace is in working order.
Filter Inspection and Change
A furnace filter should be changed every 30 to 90 days, depending on the type you have. A professional inspection of this filter will determine if you’re changing it frequently enough and if you’re using the proper filter. This simple task can dramatically improve your indoor air quality.
Inspecting the heat exchanger in your furnace for any signs of damage or corrosion will provide security that your furnace is going to run all year. It’s not uncommon for this part to become cracked or worn out over time. Signs your heat exchanger is in need of service include strange noises coming from your furnace and strange smells.
Checking the Blower Motor
The blower motor in your furnace sends conditioned air back into your home. If this part of your system isn’t working properly, you may notice slow airflow from your vents or uncomfortable indoor temperatures. A professional will look for a tight seal on the blower motor, perform an amp-draw test, and clean the unit.
Inspecting and Servicing Electrical Components
Wires and electrical connections in a furnace can become damaged over time, resulting in the need for repair. It’s important that a professional can inspect and address these issues early on in order to prevent major failures down the line.
