An annual furnace inspection and maintenance conducted by a qualified Edmonton furnace service professional is a necessary step to keep your furnace in good working condition. If your furnace is new, an annual check is also needed to ensure your unit’s warranty stays active.
You might be asking, what do furnace technicians actually do when they inspect and maintain your heating system? The answer is, it depends. The service you get will vary on the type of unit you own, as well as the furnace maintenance company that you choose to perform the job.
That said, there’s a list of 17 common tasks that different furnace manufacturers recommend being done on a year-to-year basis by a qualified HVAC technician. These include:
Other furnace parts that require checking include capacitors, inducer motors, pilot, pressure switch, and cabinet interior. Basically, an annual checkup ensures that these parts are functioning optimally, or if they need to be fixed or replaced.
Could you do all these tasks yourself? In a way, yes, but you’d have to be knowledgeable enough about your heating unit to be able to do these tasks competently. If you really want to make sure what’s being done, ask your furnace company what’s included in the annual checkup. They should be able to quickly name the tasks that they’ll be doing.
