Professional Routine Schedule for Furnace Preventative Maintenance
There are some common hiccups that a furnace will experience throughout its lifetime. One of the most important responsibilities of a home owner is to perform regular maintenance on all major appliances within your home. Remember that these are the parts of your home that provide you and your family with high levels of comfort and if they are neglected then you will find yourself in a world of hurt. Not only will you and your family experience some level of discomfort, but you will also be faced with the possibility of costly repairs that you are not expecting to pay for.
How Do I Maintain My Furnace Myself?
Take good care of your furnace so it can take good care of you and your family this upcoming winter season. Regular maintenance checkups performed by a licensed professional will ensure that your furnace is running at its best. Make sure that you change the filters on your furnace at least twice a year. Dirty or clogged air filters will reduce air flow making your furnace work harder to provide your home with warm air. A dirty air filter can also damage the limit switches, which control the fan. Changing your filters regularly is an important step in keeping your furnace working properly.

Other common problems that occur with a furnace include normal wear and tear, electric ignition or pilot control problems, malfunctioning thermostat, no heat coming from the furnace, frequent cycling, or a blower that is running constantly. Blower issues may indicate a problem with the limits switch and this will require the skill and experience of a professional. A noisy furnace is one of the most common complaints among home owners. Squeaking, rumbling and rattling are not normal sounds that should be coming from your furnace. These sounds may indicate a mechanical issue and should be looked at immediately by a professional.
