Fall is officially upon us, and that means colder weather is right around the corner. Is your home’s heating system up to snuff? So focused on making sure their air conditioning systems work well in the hot summer months, many homeowners don’t consider having a professional Lewisville HVAC technician come out to inspect their furnaces in the fall. As we witnessed last winter, however, the coldest winter days in Texas can be brutal. An inspection of your gas furnace or other heating system now can prevent sudden loss of precious warmth when you most need it.
A qualified HVAC technician will thoroughly check your heating system for potential problems and perform maintenance on your furnace’s existing components as a preventative measure. The following are typically included in a fall furnace inspection:
- Furnace test
- Evaporator coil inspection
- Burner cleaning and adjustment
- Heat exchanger cleaning and inspection
- Gas leak detection
- Blower belt inspection and adjustment
- Bearing lubrication
- Safety control test
- Filter change
Whether you have a gas furnace, electric furnace or heat pump, you owe it to yourself and your family to make sure this winter will be a comfortable one.
