Staying inside on a cold winter night with your favorite book inside your blanket or spending some time with your loved one while streaming Netflix and rewatching ‘The Big Bang Theory’ sounds so good. While you have your moment, you realize that your heating system is not working anymore.
Heating furnaces in your HVAC systems is a very important piece of machinery, and regular repairing and maintenance of the same are necessary to avoid any sorts of accidents. To avoid such situations, keep your heating furnaces repaired and maintained.
Maintain your furnace to avoid repairs
Find out some details regarding keeping your furnace safe and well maintained to avoid any breakdowns or, worse, accidents and keep them reliable and operating for the upcoming winter:
- Keep your heating ducts clean to maintain a constant flow of air inside the room. The ducts can be filled with small and big dust particles, which can at times catch fire in case of heatwave as the load on the machine increases. Calling an expert can help as they have all types of equipment needed to clean the ducts and vents.
- Replace the filters with new ones twice or thrice a year. Dirty filters can increase the HVAC system load, which increases the cost of electricity if not taken care of. It can also cause internal damage to the system. Hence, better be safe than sorry.
- Another crucial part of the furnace is the blower motor. It pushes the hot air from the furnace to the air exchanger, passing through all the vents inside the rooms. There is a special lubricant to avoid frictional damage inside the blower motor. It also needs regular tightening of nuts and bolts and vacuum cleaning. In case you hear high pitch sounds from the furnace, contact the expert as soon as possible.
- Obviously, remove all the flammable objects around the furnace to avoid any major or minor accidents. As per the National Fire Protection Association’s report, 1 in 9 fires in the US is caused due to heating equipment. Regular repairing and maintenance can avoid such accidents and can save you from being just another statistic.
Despite all these maintenance precautions, your machinery can be malfunctioning beyond a DIY repair. Therefore, on the sight of any odd behavior from your machinery, call a professional technician to repair your furnace for the comfort of you and your family.
