Your furnace will have a longer lifespan when it’s properly cleaned. Keeping your furnace in optimal operating conditions is also crucial for your health and safety. An unmaintained furnace may emit monoxide into your house or stop working when you need it the most.
Proper maintenance is the only way to avoid expensive, last-minute repairs. Investing in furnace maintenance may save you a lot of trouble in the long-term.
Change Your Filters
Filter replacements are a low-cost method to keep your furnace in working order. While you may be tempted to buy high-efficiency filters rather than disposable ones, keep in mind that these might restrict airflow, putting additional pressure on your blower motor.
Determine which filters are appropriate for your furnace by consulting your owner’s handbook. How often you change your filter is usually determined by the filter material. Pleated or polyester filters should be replaced every three months, whereas fiberglass filters should be changed every month. If you smoke, you should change your filter at least once a month, regardless of its material.
Confirm That Your Blower Motor Works Properly
Your furnace blower motor operates the fan, which circulates air through the furnace. It then blows air through all the heat exchangers. This heats and transports the air throughout the house. In addition to producing air for the furnace, most furnace blowers will provide air for the ventilation system.
The blower motor contains several functioning elements that, without the proper maintenance, may begin to fail. A loud furnace blower might signal a problem with the blower’s electric motor or the blower wheel.
Furnace Maintenance At Least Once A Year
Furnaces, like all other heating systems, should be inspected and maintained once a year. The fall is the best time for a seasonal furnace inspection and repairs before cold months. Your system can get preventative maintenance at any time of year.
