Annual maintenance on your heating system provides a long list of benefits. At the top of the list are longer equipment life and fewer heating failures. When your maintenance technician arrives to tune up your furnace, here are a few things that they will take care of.
Examining the Equipment
The inspection process allows your technician to find signs of wear and damage that need to be addressed. The venting system, intake grilles, electrical connections and belts will be examined. Any cracks will be noted, blockages and debris will be removed and items will be tightened as required.
Lubricating the Equipment
The moving parts inside your furnace can slow down with extended use. Lubricating these parts allows the equipment to operate smoothly and reliably. Included in the lubrication will be the motor bearings and blower parts.

Testing the Equipment
Testing your thermostat and the blower motor are also part of your furnace maintenance service. The technician is looking for the right level of amp draw from the motor and other electrical components. Your thermostat will also be tested and recalibrated. The startup cycle and any safety controls built into the system are included too.
Most furnace maintenance services do not include the cost of repairs. However, the technician will provide you with a breakdown of any damage found that requires a repair. Repairs are usually made after the tune-up and at the request of the homeowner.
