Furnace Maintenance FAQs
What maintenance should I have done on my furnace?
Other than changing your furnace filter every two months, we recommend having a licensed technician check over your furnace once a year. We offer an affordable residential maintenance program including a complete 19-point tune-up and safety inspection for the low price of $89 per year.
How often should I have maintenance done on my furnace?
HVAC system maintenance is critical when living in Michigan’s fluctuating temperatures. We recommend it once per year in the fall. Consistent maintenance ensures that your equipment is always running in tip-top shape and is going to get the most out of your system when you need it most.
What are the benefits of being a maintenance plan customer with HVAC comfort?
Maintenance plan customers get a visit from us twice a year to check your AC in the spring/summer months and your heating system or furnace in the fall/winter months. This ensures your units will run properly during the time of use. You will also get a 15% discount on all parts that might be needed throughout the year.
How can I prevent high furnace bills in the future?
In addition to routine furnace cleaning and maintenance, consider the furnace’s heat escape points. If your furnace is blowing warm air against a cracked wall or open window, close and seal these spaces to help keep heat in. If your home doesn’t have an insulated attic, walls, or floors, consider adding insulation.
How can I maintain a heater or furnace on my own?
Homeowners can maintain their heater or furnace between formal inspections by replacing your filter with a one- or two-inch filter every one to three months. For filters as thick as six inches, replace them every nine months to one year.
If you know your furnace inside and out, you can also think about cleaning the system, including the combustion chamber, oil filter, and vents. Cleaning tasks require the right equipment and set of skills, though, so we recommend leaving these tasks to HVAC Comfort technicians.
How do I know if my furnace needs a repair in the near future?
HVAC Comfort’s furnace maintenance service ensures that your system is running efficiently, which extends the life of your unit. But if your furnace hasn’t been inspected in a while, it might experience problems in the future that may require more work than an inspection. Here are some signs that you need a repair:
- Unusual noises coming from your unit
- Cold or limited air coming through the vents
- Inexplicable increases in your utility bills
How long do furnaces last?
A furnace that gets regular maintenance will last about 15 to 20 years. Failing to commit to a yearly HVAC furnace maintenance may lead to a shorter furnace life.
