Furnace Safety 101
Although furnaces have safety mechanisms to help protect your household, it’s possible for something to go wrong. In order to ensure your furnace is operating safely, you need to schedule annual preventative maintenance, change the air filter regularly and keep the furnace registers unobstructed.
Schedule Annual Furnace Maintenance
No matter what type of furnace you have, annual maintenance is essential to keeping it operating safely. Maintenance restores the natural efficiency loss of your furnace. You can also catch furnace problems early on by scheduling maintenance once, or preferably, twice a year.
Advanced Comfort Solutions offers furnace maintenance in the Cheyenne, WY, area. We can tune any make and model of furnace you have. Our technicians are fully certified and insured. During maintenance, our skilled technicians will thoroughly clean and inspect your furnace. We’ll make sure your unit’s safety mechanisms are working correctly, too.
Change the Air Filter Often
A clogged air filter is a fire hazard and greatly decreases the efficiency of your furnace. Heating problems you may experience include weak airflow and high energy bills. The increased wear and tear on the furnace from a clogged air filter make it more likely to break down. You need to change the air filter as often as the manufacturer recommends, which could range from every one to three months.
Don’t Block the Furnace Registers
Closing off or obstructing the furnace registers causes heat to accumulate inside the system. This can reduce the efficiency of your furnace as well. At least 80 percent of your furnace registers should be open to avoid furnace problems. Vacuum the registers every month to remove dust and pet hair.
