How often do you have to service your furnace.

How often do you have to service your furnace.

Did you know that 75% of furnace problems (including no heat) are a direct result of neglecting routine service? Just like your car, your furnace requires preventative maintenance at least once per year in order to keep it up and running when you need it most.

As your HVAC specialist, Blackall Mechanical offers preventative service and maintenance plans to keep your furnace running safely and efficiently – and to minimize the risk of costly emergency repair or replacement. Being on a routine service plan means you won’t forget having your furnace serviced, because we’ll be contacting you with friendly reminders when it’s time – thereby ensuring comfort, safety and peace-of-mind for you and your family or employees.

Here are some of the most common — and preventable — problems we see when a furnace is not routinely serviced and maintained:

· Dirty, dusty filters: If your filter is dirty or clogged, your furnace will have to work much harder to warm your home, making it inefficient and eventually causing it to breakdown. The simple task of checking and changing filters will prevent an array of problems – and it’s just one of the items on our checklist when we conduct a routine service.
· A faulty pilot light: This issue is sometimes due to a clog in the pilot opening. Other times, the pilot light button isn’t fully pressed and the gas valve isn’t all the way open. During a routine service, our certified technicians cover all bases including inspecting the pilot button and making appropriate adjustments. It may sound simple, but these are tasks you should leave to a pro.
· A cracked heat exchanger: This is one of the most dangerous problems and risks as a result of not having your furnace properly and routinely serviced. When the heat exchanger cracks, your furnace could leak dangerous toxins like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and soot into your home. In large quantities, these substances can be very dangerous to your health. This problem is often caused by a dirty, clogged filter that restricts airflow, but it can also be caused by a number of other issues. The heat exchanger is another item we always inspect to ensure the safety of your family or employees.
