How To Keep Your Furnace Maintained

To make sure your furnace is up to the task of keeping your house warm and comfortable all winter, it’s important to keep it properly maintained all year. Some routine tasks you should perform include:

  • Schedule an annual inspection with a professional.
  • Replace your filters regularly, at least every three months. This removes dust, pet dander, and other particles that can build up in the system.
  • Install a carbon monoxide monitor and have it checked by a professional at least once a year.
  • Examine the ducts to make certain that they are sealed properly and don’t have any leaks.
  • Check the blower to make sure there are no obstructions. An expert will also determine if it needs lubricant applied.
  • Inspect the inside of the furnace chamber for defects like rust, holes, and separated seams.
  • Clean the burners with fresh water to remove any dust and debris.
  • Clean the sensor and pilot with a wire brush and an emery cloth.
  • Check the “high limit” on the furnace to prevent overheating. The gas meter should also be clocked to check the rate of fuel usage.
  • Keep the area around the furnace clean and unobstructed for safety and accessibility.

Signs Your Furnace Needs Repairs

To prevent your furnace from breaking down in the middle of winter, it’s important to watch for the early signs that can indicate your unit needs repairs. These symptoms can include:

  • Short cycling: If your unit runs for less than three minutes at a time before it shuts off, this is known as short cycling. This can be due to a malfunctioning heat exchanger or a broken thermostat.
  • Irregular flames: The burners on your unit should have relatively even rows of flames. If they are uneven or lean toward the back of the system, it could be due to dirty burners or more serious issues, like a cracked heat exchanger. Cracked heat exchangers can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning and need to be dealt with right away.
  • Unusual sounds: If you have a forced-air system and you hear rumbling, popping, or whistling when the system is running it could indicate a number of problems.
  • Cracked heat exchanger: If you have frequent headaches or flu-like symptoms, the heat exchanger on your unit may be cracked. This is serious and needs to be addressed immediately, as a cracked heat exchanger can cause a carbon monoxide leak.

Common Heater Problems

Unfortunately, from time to time your heater might experience problems that need repairs. Some common issues can include:

  • Uneven heating: If there are hot and cold spots around your house, this could indicate that your system is failing.
  • Shuts down: If your unit shuts on and off frequently, it could be due to faulty wiring, a failing pilot light for gas-powered systems, or even a malfunctioning thermostat.
  • Long time to heat: If your system takes a long time to heat up, and even cranking up the thermostat doesn’t appear to be doing too much to accelerate the heating process, it can be due to leaky air ducts, a damaged fan motor, or issues with the belts and bearings.
