This Is The Best Time to Check on Your Furnace in Greensboro

September 8, 2019

You may not even think about the importance of maintenance, until an HVAC breakdown happens to you.

You could be sitting in your house getting colder and colder, bundling up with blankets and socks, and the thermostat just keeps falling no matter what you try. Then you have to struggle through a sleepless, uncomfortable night before a heating technician can come and fix anything. Or even worst, you start feeling lethargic, dizzy, and think maybe your house is haunted. Hallucinations, headaches, weakness, nausea and vomiting are all symptoms of a dangerous carbon monoxide leak. A faulty furnace could be the cause.

This is why it is suggested you get your furnace inspected in the fall in Greensboro NC. To make sure your equipment is running as efficiently as possible and to make sure it is not producing carbon monoxide and to get ahead of any potential issues that may be lurking.

Advantages of a Heating System Tune-Up

Some of the benefits of regular heating system tune-ups include:

  • Increased efficiency of your system
  • Lower energy bills
  • Improved health and safety
  • Decreased risk of system breakdowns
  • Reduced need for emergency repairs
  • Greater peace of mind

Many Greensboro and Triad homeowners have forced air gas furnaces.  These furnaces have filters that need changed around once a month or at the very least, quarterly. You can and should change these filters on your own, but Duke Energy and Piedmont Natural Gas recommend getting in touch with a licensed and qualified heating contractor check out your home furnace before the really cold weather arrives, especially if you own a high efficiency unit that requires specific instrument checks.

All furnaces need to have a blower check, an adjustment or check of the pilot light and a burner inspection.  If you live in a home without a basement, its likely your furnace is held in an enclosed closet type area.  Make sure the vent to this tiny room is clear of any debris and clean. If you have a gas fireplace, make sure to ask the HVAC technician to see if the chimney is drawing correctly.  Don't forget, if you aren't using the fireplace to close the damper.
