Now that winter isn’t too far off, it’s time for your annual home furnace maintenance. We like to visit our customers at least once a year around this time to make sure their furnaces are working efficiently and to point out any mechanical issues. If you’re curious about what furnace maintenance entails in your Centerpoint, Alabama, home, here’s how it works.

Inspection

We’ll look at every part of your furnace, including the thermostat, to check for damage and signs of mechanical wear or failure. We’ll inspect the burner, flame, heat exchanger, combustion chamber, and more so you don’t have to worry about heating efficiency and accuracy over the winter months.

Lubrication

Just like any other piece of machinery, your furnace consists of multiple moving parts. We lubricate these parts so they don’t experience undue friction. In addition to helping the furnace work more efficiently, lubrication can also extend the lifespan of both the individual parts and the entire unit.

Cleaning and Testing

We’ll also clean the burners and any other furnace component that are dirty. Afterward, we’ll test all active parts of your furnace, such as the burners, vent pipe assembly, and thermostat. We’ll also make adjustments to any necessary components, such as electrical connections and gas pressure.

Replacement

Your annual furnace maintenance includes the replacement of your HVAC filter if you have a disposable model. However, we can also replace any other parts that have worn out or become defective. While this will cost extra, you can save money on parts and labor through our maintenance plan, which comes with a 15-percent discount. You also receive a complimentary emergency service call and priority service if your system breaks down.

Don’t neglect furnace maintenance this fall. It might seem like a simple chore, but preventive care keeps your family safe and your HVAC system efficient. To sign up for a service plan or to schedule furnace maintenance, call One Source Heating & Cooling today at 205-209-4246.
