Furnace Refinement

Here at Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling, we recommend scheduling an annual furnace tune-up. This includes an inspection. The best time to schedule the appointment is in the fall because most homeowners don’t run their heating system during the summer and much of the spring. Having a heating expert look at the furnace before turning it on can help detect any problems that the furnace may have developed over several months. Some of those issues could cause extreme damage to the system.

When the technician comes to a home for the maintenance service, they will begin with a complete inspection of the home’s heating system, looking over every aspect of the system. They will find and replace any worn-out parts, tighten loose parts or screws, electrical connections, and lubricate mechanical parts. They will also detect any potential problems that may wreak havoc on the system requiring more extensive repairs.

After this inspection, the technician will clean the furnace. This will ensure no dirt, dust, or debris could affect the air quality inside the home. During routine maintenance, the heating expert will check and adjust countless components in the system. This includes:

  • Ensuring the furnace properly cycles
  • Replacing air filters if necessary
  • Recalibrating sensors
  • Confirming the furnace is not a safety hazard
  • Unblocking blockages inside the furnace or in air ducts
  • Cleaning and removing debris from the blower
  • Searching for fuel leaks

After this process is done, the technician will go over their findings with the homeowner. This will include detailing what steps they took and discussing any unresolved issues that may remain.

Repair and Replacement Options

If the technician notices an issue that needs to be fixed, they will discuss the issue and provide options for repair and an estimate. Once the homeowner and the technician agree on the specifics, the repairs can start right away. This normally happens the same day and can keep the furnace running properly year-round.

Sometimes, a homeowner’s best option may be to replace the heating unit. This is especially true if the furnace is near the end of its normal life expectancy. The average life expectancy for a furnace is 15 to 20 years. Another reason for a new installation will be if the estimated repair cost is close to the cost of a new unit that will work more efficiently. Whether you need a full replacement or not, the professionals at Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling will be happy to help you select and install a new furnace for your home.

Advantages of Furnace Maintenance

To maximize savings, keep the furnace professionally maintained. Routine maintenance is the surest way to extend the life of ar furnace. A homeowner will also reduce the number of repairs needed by catching and fixing minor issues before they have a chance to become huge problems that wreak havoc.

Annual tune-ups can also improve the efficiency of the home’s heating system. By eliminating extra dirt and debris, properly lubricating mechanical parts, and replacing worn parts, the system will run more efficiently. This decreases the homeowner’s monthly utility bills.
