Technical Aspects of Furnace Maintenance

During a typical furnace maintenance visit, our technicians at Energy Services focus on several critical components:

1. Air Filter Inspection and Replacement

A clean air filter is essential for proper airflow and efficient operation. We recommend checking and replacing filters every 1-3 months, depending on usage and environmental factors.

2. Burner Cleaning and Adjustment

Dirty burners can lead to incomplete combustion, reducing efficiency and potentially creating harmful carbon monoxide. Our technicians thoroughly clean and adjust the burners to ensure optimal performance.

3. Heat Exchanger Inspection

The heat exchanger is a crucial component that transfers heat from the combustion process to the air circulating through your home. We inspect for cracks or signs of wear to prevent potential safety hazards.

4. Blower Motor Lubrication

Proper lubrication of the blower motor ensures smooth operation and reduces energy consumption. Our technicians apply the appropriate lubricant to extend the motor’s lifespan.

Accurate thermostat readings are essential for maintaining comfortable temperatures and optimizing energy usage. We calibrate your thermostat to ensure precise temperature control.
