A Comprehensive Guide to Furnace Maintenance, Anchorage, Alaska

Furnaces keep your home warm and comfortable during the winter. But, to ensure your system is performing optimally, it’s essential to practice routine maintenance. If you’re not sure what’s involved in maintaining your heating system, here is a guide that will help you prevent a breakdown during the coldest time of the year.

Replace the Filters

furnaceAir filters are designed to trap dirt and contaminants to prevent them from contaminating your air supply and furnace. It’s essential to replace the filters regularly, as the accumulation can clog the filters and put more wear and tear on your heating system. Clogged filters can also cause a furnace to lock out and shut down. Inspect the filters on a monthly basis and replace as needed.

Clean the Vents

Ventilation is essential to ensure warm air can circulate through your home. When your heating system is running, make sure all vents are open and clean of any dirt and debris. Move any furniture that could be blocking the vents as this can put more wear on your furnace and shorten its lifespan. Getting your ducts cleaned as needed is also important to the daily function and the longevity of your furnace.

Schedule an Annual Inspection

An annual furnace inspection is critical to the health and longevity of your units. The technicians will examine all of the components, and internal parts, and note anything that needs attention. They will look for any signs of corrosion, loose connections, build-up, or other types of damage that could increase the risk of a breakdown. Any identified issues will be reviewed with you to ensure you understand the condition of your units and how to keep it functioning at peak performance all year.
