Furnace Maintenance Checklist

Furnace Maintenance Checklist

By now, you’re no doubt familiar with why it’s so important to have your heating system checked out by a professional HVAC service provider once a year.  Those reasons include:

  • Longer system lifespan
  • Fewer & less costly repairs
  • Lower utility costs
  • Added safety
  • Cleaner indoor air

Assuming you know all of that, how much do you know about what constitutes a heating system cleaning and inspection? For most people, the answer is “very little,” hence the purpose of this blog. And yet, since every type of heating system – furnace, boiler, radiant, etc. – has its own check-up protocol, below you’ll find the key components of a furnace (forced air) heating system:

  • Clean or replace air filters
  • Measure for correct air flow
  • Measure room-by-room differences in temperature
  • Lubricate all moving parts
  • Check and adjust thermostat
  • Clean and adjust burner assembly
  • Clean ignition/pilot assembly
  • Clean heat exchanger or elements
  • Monitor flue draft or direct vent flow
  • Test starting capabilities
  • Test safety controls and systems
  • Clean and adjust blower components
  • Tighten electrical connections
  • Measure electrical volts and amps
  • And more

It’s a very thorough process, especially when performed by a well-trained Correct Temp home heating professional.  And, just as a reminder, it’s a service that should be performed once year.
