What is a furnace maintenance check up?
A check up can vary from company to company but they should all have the same basics. Furnace maintenance is a safety inspection of the appliance. All of the safety controls require testing, such as the Hi limit control, flame roll out sensor, pressure switches just to name a few. After this has been performed a quality service would proceed to check over the condition of the heat exchanger using a visual probe, camera, water test or a flue gas analyzer. Testing the heat exchangers would be the most important part of any maintenance check-up, if missed or done incorrectly it could place you and your family in serious danger of carbon monoxide poisoning. The condition of the major components such as the motors, blower wheels and burners need to be tested and cleaned. This will add years of life to your furnace and may save you as much as 30% off your gas and power bill not to mention the peace of mind you will have knowing the state and condition of your furnace.
