Many homeowners don’t think about the furnace, especially during the off-season when the Northern Colorado weather is warm and beautiful. But when winter rolls around, it’s essential that homeowners take the time to make sure that the HVAC system is running efficiently and is ready to take on the snowstorms of the Front Range.
If your furnace hasn’t been maintenanced since last fall or winter, the heating and cooling specialists at Ace Hi Plumbing offer professional and highly experienced service. Whether the furnace simply needs to be cleaned out or if there is a loose belt or blocked condensate drain, our technicians will get the job done quickly, efficiently, and will leave your home in the same, if not better, condition than when we started.
A Furnace Maintenance Appointment Includes:
- Replacing the filter.
- Cleaning the burner and making sure all parts are working, including the gas valve, igniter, and flame sensor.
- Cleaning the blower assembly and checking that it’s functioning.
- Checking the blower belt.
- Cleaning the flame-sensing rod.
- Checking the heat exchanger for any leaks.
- Safety checking the carbon monoxide detector.
- Checking the flue, which collects combustion gases and sends them outside.
- Cleaning the valves.
- Inspecting, cleaning, and lubricating air vents.
- Double checking the thermostat.
Why Should You Have Your Furnace Maintenanced?
Just like when you get an oil change for your car, regular furnace maintenance will ensure that everything is working as it should and problem areas can be fixed to improve performance.
A furnace will last around 15 years or longer with regular maintenance. Without it, there will be more frequent repairs, dirt and debris can reduce efficiency, and a system that has to work harder because of low performing parts won’t last as long.
If a leak in the heat exchanger has developed, it could pose a significant risk to you and your family. Regular maintenance will also ensure that the furnace doesn’t go out during the harshest weather, when you need a warm house the most.
Lower Energy Bills
A poorly functioning furnace can increase your utility bills significantly. When the furnace’s air filter is clean, the ducts are clear, and all parts are tuned up, this will help the system run more efficiently, allowing it to use less energy.
If you have been putting off having furnace maintenance completed, there’s no better time than today! The HVAC contractors at Ace Hi Plumbing want to ensure that your home is ready for winter.
