Winter weather is right around the corner in Sherwood, AR, so it’s time to make sure your furnace is ready. A professional furnace tune-up ensures that your furnace will safely and efficiently heat your home during the cold months of the year. Our HVAC technicians perform many essential tasks during your annual furnace maintenance visit.
Our preventive maintenance visits for furnaces begin with a system inspection. Each part of your furnace will be checked for safety issues, excessive wear and tear, damage, and signs of an impending malfunction. This inspection allows our technicians to determine if any parts need to be replaced due to the potential for a failure. Replacing a worn or damaged component now could prevent an unexpected furnace breakdown and an emergency repair during the middle of the winter season.
Cleanup and Lubrication
Each heating cycle performed by your furnace leaves a little debris behind. During the summertime, some dust may settle into the furnace’s combustion chamber, in the air filter, and on other heating system parts. We clean all these areas, as well as the burners, sensors, and fan blades. Our technicians lubricate all moving parts, which reduces the potential for wear and tear.
Another critical part of your autumn furnace tune-up is the filter change. Your furnace’s air filter traps particles and sequesters them. After about four weeks of use, the filter’s pores fill with the dust and debris. A clogged filter hinders airflow. When the hot air can’t exit the heating chamber, the heat exchanger may overheat. Replacing a cracked heat exchanger is costly. Dirty filters reduce furnace efficiency by as much as 15%, so it’s important to maintain a clean one.
