Fall Maintenance For Your Gas Furnace

Fall Maintenance For Your Gas Furnace

The outside temperatures are steadily declining, which means we are dangerously close to the heating season. Before it gets too cold out, you should perform some maintenance on your gas furnace. Otherwise, you might be stuck with a broken furnace later on in the middle of the winter.

New Filter Please
The easiest maintenance task you can perform is to simply change the air filters. Air filters do the dirty job of removing dust, allergens, and other particles from the air so you don’t have to breathe them in. This should be done at the start of the heating season as well as once per month until you shut the furnace down next spring.

Clean Machine
The furnace itself will become dirty throughout its operation due to any dust and particles that do make it past the air filter. Open up the furnace’s panel door and begin cleaning all of its working parts. The blower, pulleys, belts, and the interior surface should all be wiped down to remove any caked on dust that could lower the unit’s efficiency.

Professional Service
There’s only so much the average homeowner can do before a professional needs to be called in. Every year before the furnace is put into operation, it should be serviced by a professional HVAC technician. This will increase the furnace’s overall efficiency and reduce the chance of it breaking down in the cold weather months.

Every fall your gas furnace should receive some love and attention by you AND an HVAC technician. When you need your gas furnace serviced, contact the pros at Tri-City Appliance, Plumbing, Heating & Cooling. To learn more, or to schedule an appointment, give us a call at (203) 303-5700.
