Furnace Maintenance

Furnace Maintenance in Northborough, MA

Many people request a furnace tune-up and assume they have covered their bases. Don’t make this mistake. Besides having the furnace tuned up, you need to request furnace maintenance at least once each year. This furnace maintenance is only one of many heating services offered by Sharp Plumbing and Heating today.

Preventative heating maintenance visits involve multiple tasks above and beyond what we complete during a tune-up. The tune-up functions to ensure the furnace operates properly and isn’t a safety hazard. In addition, during the tune-up, our technician looks for any visible problems and alerts you to the need for repairs.

During this visit, the technician cleans and inspects all parts of the furnace. They may change the air filter or remove soot present in the unit. They also ensure the safety of the unit, as your home and family must remain protected.

During the heating maintenance visit, the technician does a thorough inspection of the entire system to identify any leaks or areas of concern. This includes the ductwork and the thermostat. If the technician finds any problems, our team can correct them before a complete system breakdown occurs. You determine when these pairs will be completed.

We remove any debris in the air intake pipe or vent to prevent the unit from stalling out or locking out. If either of these situations occur, you won’t have heat and we don’t want that to happen, particularly when the temperature drops outdoors.

Our technician takes carbon monoxide readings to ensure the system isn’t leaking this dangerous gas and putting your family and home at risk. These are only a few of many tasks we carry out during a furnace maintenance visit, and there are others.

Benefits of furnace maintenance

Heating maintenance comes with several benefits. When we visit the home to maintain the furnace, you see an immediate increase in its performance. Rooms heat evenly once again, and the system won’t work as hard to achieve this goal.

As the system performance improves, the furnace won’t need to work as hard to keep the home at the desired temperature. This helps to extend its lifespan, which saves you money. Nobody wants to replace their furnace sooner than they must.

With our help, your system should last 15 to 20 years if it is a gas model. Electric models last 20 to 30 years before needing replacement if they are well-maintained. Ensure you get the maximum lifespan out of the unit by having our heating services technician perform this maintenance a minimum of once a year.

In addition, as the system isn’t working as hard, energy bills should decrease. With the rising cost of natural gas today, you will appreciate any savings in this area.

Don’t overlook the importance of regular furnace maintenance for the manufacturer’s warranty. Most manufacturers require the system to be maintained by a licensed professional every year to keep the warranty intact. A failure to do so could leave you with costly repairs if something goes wrong with the unit.

How Often Should I Get Furnace Maintenance?

We recommend you have the furnace maintained a minimum of once each year. However, if the technician sees something during this visit that concerns them with no apparent cause, they may recommend a repeat visit in a few months.

For example, if the unit seems excessively dirty when they clean it, they may recommend a return visit to see if the furnace has accumulated a significant amount of dirt and debris in a few months. If so, it will need to be determined why this is the case.
