Despite our recent above average temperatures – it’s inevitable – the cold weather is coming!
Seventy-five percent of no-heat calls placed with heating and cooling HVAC companies in the winter are related to a lack of maintenance, leaving people suddenly without heat. Having a professional perform a furnace check-up before the cold weather hits will help keep your system in good running order and prevent it from quitting when you need it most.
Don’t take a chance on having your system suddenly fail at sub-zero temperatures! And worse…this could happen on a weekend, or during the holidays, requiring emergency service. A quit furnace could expose your family to a blast of cold causing serious health problems, not to mention extreme discomfort.
Another serious hazard can come from unchecked carbon monoxide leaks. This gas is colorless and odorless, making it difficult to discover. Carbon monoxide can lead to headaches, dizziness, nausea and even death. An estimated 500 people die each year, and 15,000 people are taken to emergency rooms due to exposure.
Not maintaining your furnace — whether it’s gas or electric — can cause it to run less efficiently, making it work harder, increasing your monthly energy bills.
What does a pre-winter furnace check-up provide besides peace of mind?
An inspection of the thermostat settings to make sure the system is properly running.
Checking electrical connections and testing voltage on the system components to prevent possible failure in the future.
Inspecting the condensate drain so it’s not obstructed.
Checking system start-up and shutdown controls for proper operations, as well as changing the filter.
Some of the reasons to have a check-up:
- Defective compressors caused by dirty condenser coils.
- A defective blower motor could fail due to high RPMs.
- Air-to-air exchangers not providing fresh air due to clogged intake.
- Cracked heat exchanger caused by poor airflow or too much gas pressure.
- No heat due to dirty flame sensor.
- Rodent and other pest damage.
