4 Benefits of Furnace Maintenance in Hilliard & Dublin, Ohio
SAFETY COMES FIRST
Most of the furnaces we service are fueled by natural gas. Anything that burns natural gas to produce heat is far more unpredictable and dangerous if it’s not being checked regularly by a professional. During a furnace maintenance tune-up, our technicians thoroughly inspect the system’s heat exchanger and its gas line to make sure there isn’t any sort of carbon monoxide leakage.
LOWER HEATING COSTS
With the passing of each season of usage, furnaces develop wear and tear from the strain of producing heat over time, while dirt and dust build up on the system and around it. This greatly diminishes a furnace’s efficiency as it needs more power than before to provide the same level of comfort and heat.
MAINTAINS MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY
With a new installation usually comes a manufacturer’s warranty. Many manufacturers require routine maintenance to keep the warranty valid. If the buyer forgets to have it done even once, the warranty is worthless. We strongly suggest homeowners play it smart by playing it safe.
PROLONGS LIFE OF FURNACE
The only way to effectively ensure a furnace lasts for as long as possible is to regularly utilize seasonal maintenance. Without proper care, furnaces usually only last half as long as they were designed to. The cost of a new system is always far, far more than a maintenance visit.

FAQ: Furnace Maintenance
What maintenance does a furnace need?
To keep your furnace running efficiently, there are several types of maintenance that should be performed regularly. Some of the most important tasks include: Cleaning or Replacing Air Filters Air filters are critical for keeping your furnace running properly. They trap dust, dirt, and other particles that can clog the system and reduce its efficiency. Depending on the type of filter you have, you may need to clean or replace it every one to three months. Inspecting and Cleaning the Blower Assembly The blower assembly is responsible for circulating air through your home. Over time, this component can collect dust and debris that can reduce its efficiency. To keep your blower assembly functioning properly, you should have it inspected and cleaned every year. Checking the Heat Exchanger The heat exchanger is responsible for transferring heat from the furnace to the air that is circulated through your home. Over time, this component can develop cracks that can lead to carbon monoxide leaks. To prevent this from happening, you should have your heat exchanger inspected every year. Lubricating Moving Parts Furnaces have several moving parts that need to be lubricated to keep them functioning smoothly. This includes the blower motor and fan, as well as any other moving parts in the system. You should have a professional lubricate these parts every year. Inspecting and Cleaning the Burner Assembly The burner assembly is responsible for burning fuel to create heat. Over time, this component can become clogged with dirt and debris that can reduce its efficiency. To keep your burner assembly functioning properly, you should have it inspected and cleaned every year.
How often does a furnace need to be serviced?
To keep your furnace running efficiently, it’s recommended that you have it serviced every year. This service should include a thorough inspection of the system, as well as any necessary maintenance tasks, such as cleaning or replacing air filters, cleaning the blower assembly, checking the heat exchanger, lubricating moving parts, and inspecting and cleaning the burner assembly.
What happens if you don't service your furnace?
If you neglect to service your furnace, there are several consequences that you may face, including: Increased Energy Bills A furnace that is not functioning properly will have to work harder to heat your home, which can result in higher energy bills. Reduced Lifespan of the System A furnace that is not maintained regularly will not last as long as a well-maintained system. Neglecting maintenance can lead to increased wear and tear on the system, which can shorten its lifespan. Safety Concerns Neglecting maintenance can also lead to safety concerns, such as cracks in the heat exchanger that can lead to carbon monoxide leaks. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that can be deadly if it builds up to dangerous levels.
