Your furnace plays an invaluable role in supporting your household’s comfort and safety. Once winter hits, having a working furnace is the only way to ensure that you and your family will be able to stay warm. Providing your heating system with adequate maintenance throughout the year is the best way to make sure it will be in good operating condition.
Most handy homeowners can change the air filters on their furnace as needed, but you should leave the rest of the maintenance work to the pros at Mister Quik Home Services. During preventative maintenance visits, our technicians will go much further. They’ll tune up each component of your heating system and inspect the whole system to make sure it’s in good working order. When we’re done, you can rest easy knowing that your furnace will be performing efficiently throughout the home heating season.
Most manufacturers’ warranties require homeowners to have their furnaces professionally maintained at least once a year. If that’s the approach you plan to take, it’s best to give us a call in the late summer or early fall. If your furnace is older or prone to breakdowns, our technicians may recommend bi-annual or quarterly maintenance checks, and we’ll always be available in the intervening time to help out if something goes wrong.
Not sure if you need to schedule an extra maintenance visit? Even if you’re on an annual schedule, you might want to consider calling for a tune-up if you notice:
- Condensation on or in the ductwork
- Unusual scents when the heat is on
- Odd noises coming from the furnace
- Sudden increases in your home heating bills
- Water pooling around the furnace
- Cold air coming out of the registers
Sometimes, a few tweaks are all it takes to get your system back into good working order. Others, we’ll need to perform some basic repairs. We can provide the most common repair services on the spot.
Next, we’ll adjust belts, thermostats, and electrical connections as needed, then lubricate all the moving parts. If we find any serious issues during the inspection phase, we’ll let you know and start working towards developing a plan to move forward.
Gas and electric furnaces are pretty similar, but they use different fuel sources. If you have a gas furnace, we’ll take some extra steps to make sure your family is safe. We’ll analyze combustion levels, check for carbon monoxide leaks, and make sure your furnace’s efficiency levels are within a reasonable range.
The most obvious benefit of furnace maintenance is that it will keep your equipment in good working condition so you don’t have to deal with unexpected breakdowns in the middle of winter.
Aging furnaces require routine maintenance to keep them operating at maximum efficiency. You can save as much as 30% off the top of your heating bills by scheduling annual tune-ups.
Furnaces move a ton of air throughout your home. If the heating system has dirty filters or leaks, it can let dust, pollen, pet dander, and other airborne allergens and contaminants into your home. Regular maintenance prevents this issue.
Furnaces are complicated and they see a ton of use, which means parts get worn out faster than you might think. We’ll replace them as needed before they break down to help you limit the chances of unexpected system failures.
We know that furnaces are expensive. Routine maintenance calls, on the other hand, are quite affordable. Maintaining your furnace can extend its usable lifespan by many years, which makes annual tune-ups a great investment.
Aging gas furnaces can develop carbon monoxide leaks, which pose serious dangers to your family’s health and safety. We can often catch potential leaks before they happen, but only if you schedule regular maintenance calls.
