Is Your Furnace Ready for Another Winter?

Remember as a child those tense moments before sharing your report card with your folks? It was enough to drive you crazy.

A bad grade, for example, could cost you to lose a privilege or two or keep you off the honor roll. But put in the work and turn everything in on time and it was smooth sailing for another quarter.

Well, it’s not much different for your furnace – that’s right, a machine designed solely to help ensure your family’s indoor comfort.

A Report Card for Your Furnace

Your heating system is crucial to maintaining a safe and comfortable home all winter long. And with annual preventive maintenance – the kind provided by C&D Cooling & Heating – it can do a superior job for up to 15 years. But eventually, it’s bound to need repair and even replacement. How will you know when that time has arrived? By paying attention to some of these tell-tale signs:

  • No heat coming from registers
  • Higher than normal energy bills
  • Unusual smells coming from the furnace or registers
  • The furnace is making loud, unusual noises
  • The furnace turns on and off frequently
  • Pilot light on older units is yellow or orange, or doesn’t stay lit
  • Excess dust in the air
  • An aging system, and more.

Just as a quarterly report card allows parents to see how their children are performing, an annual heating system inspection performed by one of our highly trained HVAC technicians provides a snapshot of how well your heating system is performing, what repairs, if any, may be necessary, and sets you up for another season of the indoor warmth and comfort you depend on.

During an annual inspection, a technician will:

  • Inspect the unit and its wiring
  • Check and clean or replace filter as needed
  • Check thermostat operation
  • Check and clean burner
  • Clean the heat exchanger and check for cracks, holes, or leaks
  • Inspect and clean the blower and blower motor
  • Check for leaks in the gas line or other fuel supply components
  • Clean and lubricate all unit components as needed
  • And much more.

And consider this: With annual preventive maintenance, you’ll enjoy more effective and efficient home heating, lower heating costs, a system that lasts longer, improved indoor air quality, reduced repairs and repair costs, and increased safety.
