Affordable Lebanon Furnace Maintenance Services

Your furnace has a big job. This home appliance is a workhorse in the winter, providing heat, regulating air flow, and protecting home occupants from airborne particles. Therefore, it is important to schedule regular furnace maintenance to ensure your furnace receives the care and upkeep it needs to work through the frigid Indianapolis winter.

A Look at Routine Furnace Maintenance

What is routine furnace maintenance, and why is it important? Routine furnace maintenance is a type of preventative care for your furnace performed by the Mister Quik Home Services team of HVAC experts. During the visit, the technician will inspect and tune up the heating appliance. Routine maintenance will help save you money as it can prevent an expensive breakdown later on. Routine maintenance is also important as the family needs to stay warm throughout the winter, and routine checkups give you peace of mind when it comes to the health of your furnace.

The Frequency of Routine Maintenance

Some manufacturers’ warranties require annual, bi-annual, or even quarterly maintenance checks. Make sure to read the small print to avoid losing out on your warranty coverage due to missing routine maintenance visits. The age of the system, any past repairs that were made, and current operating functionality can also affect how often the unit needs to be inspected.

Signs That a Furnace Repair Is Needed

While some problems may be undetectable by the homeowner, some signs are red flags regarding furnace health. Below are some signs that you need to have your furnace inspected:

  • The furnace is leaking water;
  • There is condensation inside or around the ductwork;
  • The furnace smells funny;
  • Odd noises are coming from the unit;
  • The heating, gas, or utility bill has skyrocketed; or
  • The home is cold.

What Is Included in a Routine Maintenance Visit?

If the appointment is for a routine system checkup, the HVAC technician will go through a checklist and check the unit’s components. For example, this checkup can include inspecting the following:

  • Inspecting the ventilation system;
  • Checking the heat exchanger;
  • Measuring voltages;
  • Checking the blower and the blower motor;
  • Inspecting the blower door;
  • Checking the electrical connections;
  • Cleaning or replacing the air filter;
  • Checking the refrigerant lines;
  • Inspecting the thermostat controls;
  • Checking the condensation levels;
  • Inspecting the belts for wear and tear;
  • Checking all safety controls; 
  • Inspecting the burner.

The Many Benefits of Routine Furnace Maintenance

Routine furnace maintenance keeps your Indianapolis home warm. This type of visit can maintain the warranty on the furnace. Other benefits include decreased energy bills and improved air quality.

Save Money on Utilities and Improve Air Quality

Did you know that a well-maintained furnace can save you up to 30% on your heating bill? Of course, this number can vary based on insulation, windows, and square footage of the home.

The furnace pulls air from inside the home and recirculates it through the HVAC system. The air filter does a big job, as it catches pet dander, pollen, dust, and other junk in the air before pushing the air back into the home. Replace the air filter to keep dirty air particles at bay and away from your family.

Carbon Monoxide Is Dangerous

Unfortunately, furnaces produce carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is supposed to be vented out of the home through an exhaust pipe. During scheduled maintenance, the technician will check for gas or carbon monoxide leaks.

Make Your Furnace Last

Furnaces are expensive. If properly maintained, they are typically warrantied for ten years. Extend the life of your furnace through routine care, and hopefully, your unit will make it ten or even twenty years.
