An important part of running a business of any kind is making sure that the facilities are in good working order, and as we approach the colder months of the year, one clear priority in these efforts should be tending to your furnace. After all, you definitely don’t want to have to deal with any sudden malfunctions once winter truly sets in, so it’s wise to start thinking about furnace maintenance while the weather is still mild. In this article, our team at L&B Mechanical will go over a few key things you need to know about furnace maintenance in order to make sure you don’t have to go cold this winter.
- Hire Professionals for Best Results- One thing that we want you to know about furnace maintenance is that, for best results, you’ll always want to hire professional technicians. Our team has extensive experience working on furnaces of all kinds, so we know what to look for in order to identify problems, and we know how to correct them right away.
- Check the Drainage Tube- When you enlist our team for furnace maintenance, one of the steps we will take is to inspect the drainage tube and clear it out if necessary. Natural gas and propane furnaces produce small amounts of water as they heat, which then drains away through this tube. If it gets clogged, it could trigger a sensor to shut the system down, but our team will make sure that this doesn’t happen by clearing the tube.
- Dust and Vacuum the Furnace- Another key step in furnace maintenance is to keep the system clean of any dust or grime that may have accumulated, as this can cause your furnace to lose efficiency. Our team will thoroughly dust and vacuum the furnace and the surrounding area in order to make sure that it stays in peak working condition.
