Now that fall has arrived and the cool weather is here, it’s a good idea to call Vredevoogd Heating & Cooling to schedule your routine furnace maintenance. A tune-up is the ideal way to ensure that your furnace has been professionally inspected and is ready to tackle those frigid temperatures of the winter to come. When you contact one of our certified techs to tune up your furnace, here’s what you can expect.
Our tech will arrive at your home ready to conduct a full inspection of your furnace and heating system. This is the best way to ward off any surprise malfunctions during winter. If there are small problems, our techs can catch them before they become large and costly issues. During the inspection, they will look for signs of wear and tear that may be causes for concern. They will also make sure your furnace is ready to roll as soon as the cold weather strikes.
Evaluation of Gas Pressure and Pilot
As part of your routine maintenance checks and tune-up, your service tech will make any needed adjustments to ensure that your gas pressure and pilot are operating in accordance with your furnace manufacturer’s specifications. Over the summer, it’s possible that these two elements fell out of optimum working order.
Lubrication of Parts
Any type of mechanical equipment requires lubrication in order to reduce friction that could cause damage or require premature parts replacement. A comprehensive tune-up always includes lubrication.
Replacement of Filter
Most furnace filters need replacing every three months. Even if your furnace has been shut off all summer long, it likely needs a new filter. This, too, is a standard part of your comprehensive furnace maintenance.
Our techs work with a checklist of tasks associated with your tune-up. This allows them to easily provide you with a written report of everything they did along with any comments or concerns they may have. Naturally, they’ll talk to you about whatever they’ve done or discovered, but you’ll be able to refer back the report in writing for added convenience. These reports are also extremely important to Vredevoogd as they allow us to build a maintenance record of care for your furnace that we can easily refer to in the future.
Be sure to contact us soon so we can make sure that your furnace is in optimum working order. Once we provide your furnace with a tune-up, you can enjoy peace of mind all winter long, knowing you can rely on your furnace to keep your home cozy and warm.
