Prioritize Annual Furnace Maintenance



Cincinnati area homeowners hear a lot of different info regarding ways to protect the furnace, cut energy consumption, and save on heating energy bills. While many of these heating tips and tricks can be helpful, there’s one bit of advice that can maximize those benefits and more – have a furnace tune-up performed each year by a licensed furnace maintenance technician.

Regular furnace maintenance performed by a professional services and examines all critical furnace components. Service tasks are completed based on Thomas & Galbraith’s furnace maintenance checklist to minimize the damage of wear and tear as well as limit the likelihood of a malfunctioning happening later on during heating season. Specific elements of your furnace are tested, observed, and measured, then corrected or adjusted as necessary to ensure the electric, oil, or gas furnace can deliver efficient heat for your household.

The Furnace Maintenance Checklist for Your Tune-Up

Thomas & Galbraith Heating, Cooling & Plumbing has put together a comprehensive furnace maintenance checklist to ensure all critical aspects of the heating system are properly addressed during a furnace tune-up. Without proper maintenance, wear and tear damage as well as developing faults will reduce efficiency of your furnace, potentially creating the need for costly furnace repairs or even replacement.

Gas furnaces, oil furnace systems, and electric furnaces have many working parts that all must work at their best in order for the furnace to deliver efficient and affordable heat in your house. Our furnace maintenance checklist addresses these individual furnace elements – the tune-up steps we complete during professional furnace maintenance include:

  • Install a clean air filter and dispose of the system’s dirty air filters.
  • Verify the blower door panel is secure when closed.
  • Clean out dust, debris, and loose material from the blower motor assembly.
  • Replace a broken belt or tighten a loose belt running between the fan motor and the blower fan blades.
  • Add lubrication to oil ports on the blower motor to grease the bearings within.
  • Remove carbon soot from combustion chamber walls.
  • Use a small wire brush to clean away carbon soot on burners and clear up yellow flames.
  • Clean soot and debris from the flame sensor.
  • Test the performance of the flame sensor.
  • Examine natural gas supply or heating oil fuel supply pipes for leaks and damage.
  • Test function of the gas valve and adjust natural gas pressure when necessary.
  • Verify good airflow through the combustion chamber so fuel mixes with air correctly.
  • Replace the old filter with a new oil filter in oil furnace units.
  • Examine heat exchanger, looking for problematic issues like a cracked heat exchanger.
  • Test operation of the electric motor of the draft inducer.
  • Verify the draft inducer pushes combustion gases out of the heat exchanger and through the exhaust flue.
  • Inspect the exhaust flue for blockages, damage, or corroded flues.
  • Inspect the circuit board, wiring, power switch, and other furnace electrical system components.
  • Secure loose connections between wires, switches, and other materials of the electrical power components.
  • Verify airflow and measure pressure in the duct system.
  • Test thermostat for proper function.

How Often Furnace Maintenance Is Needed and When to Schedule It

Air conditioning and heating system manufacturers state that any air conditioning unit or furnace should receive annual servicing from a licensed HVAC technician. One time per year, your system will need a furnace tune-up to keep it running efficiently, no matter what type of fuel supply it uses to generate heat.

Anytime you have a furnace tune-up done and the furnace maintenance checklist completed, your heating system is going to benefit. Technically, a furnace tune-up can be performed at any point throughout the year. However, choosing to schedule your furnace maintenance tune-up for the early fall can be highly advantageous as we move closer toward heating season.

Why schedule your professional furnace tune-up early in the fall? First off, it ensures all steps of the furnace maintenance checklist are completed prior to starting the furnace this season. In addition to the many clear benefits regular maintenance offers in terms of better comfort, lower energy bills, and improving the home’s air quality, the plus of reducing future repair needs is highlighted at this time.

During the furnace tune-up, a professional closely examines all parts of the system. The tune-up creates the perfect opportunity to get trained eyes on each and every part of your furnace – if there is something amiss with any component, your technician is going to catch it. Knowledge is power, and when a problem is known, it can be corrected. Minor furnace flaws are fixed before time to start running the heating system – this way, they don’t snowball into large problems that inflict costly damage onto your heating unit over the course of normal operation.

DIY Furnace Maintenance Tasks for Cincinnati Homeowners

Professional annual furnace maintenance goes a long way toward caring for the functionality and longevity of your heater, but it isn’t the only maintenance service needed to preserve your system. Between annual servicing, there are steps you need to take to protect the furnace and enhance its efficiency.
