Furnace Tune Up
A furnace tune-up is a great option if you want to get ready for winter. Given that heating systems are used during seasonal periods in most houses, it’s normal for the furnace to require a tune up to make sure it is in excellent conditions. Tune up is also a great safety measure because it includes checking up on the gas and electrical conditions of the furnace. At Norman Heat and Air Repair, we have been providing this professional service for many years. We have the experience, the tools and the technicians. All we need is your address, so that we can head on over to your home and get the job done.
Many of our clients are unfamiliar with the tune-up process and will frequently ask us what it entails. Well, basically, we take the door off and unhook the electrical connections. Afterwards, we unhinge the electrical plate in order to access the motor. It is important to unscrew the motor and take it out of the furnace because it’s the best way to do thorough tune-up tests. The motor is what ventilates air, so we also make sure that the motor vents and slots are clean. We use special products to keep everything clean. We oil everything that may look rusty and then reassemble everything back together.
At Norman Heat and Air Repair, we use only specialized tools and equipment to get the job done right. For example, we use a detailed diagnostic chart which allows us to quickly identify if there are any problems with the furnace that we should be looking into. We also use a comprehensive wiring diagram which allow us to fully understand the electrical situation of the furnace. If there are any electrical or material pieces that need replacing, this is the perfect moment to get the job done. At the end of the tune-up, we offer a full report of what we assessed, fixed and provided maintenance. This way, our client is fully informed of the whole process.
Another task that our technicians do in order to ensure your furnace is ready for winter is a blower-motor test. This test is the best way to make sure that everything is safe electrically and with gas. Our technicians also do a test on the sequence of operations. This means that all the steps to make the furnace work are in good conditions and in coordination with one another. All this ensures proper ventilation, which is important to maintain excellent air quality indoors. If you have further questions about this process, our technicians will gladly help you out.
Furnace Maintenance tips
We like to help our clients keep their furnace in great conditions. There are simple things that homeowners can do on their own for maintenance. For example, you can check to make sure that your metal or PVC pipes are not rusty or damaged. We also recommend that you check that there are no leaks in the refrigerating coils. Finally, you can make sure that the gas supply line is correctly working, by checking that the pipes are not damaged.
