Back to School: Furnace Care 101

Furnace care 101

A big part of back-to-school prep is getting your family and home for the cold days coming with things like:

  • Buying new winter jackets.
  • Bringing in the lawn furniture.
  • Cleaning out your gutters.

Equally important is having Haven Home ClimateCare perform seasonal care on your furnace.

It’s crucial to give your furnace a precision tune-up before the winter weather hits and ensure it’s running at peak performance, reliably keeping your house warm and reducing energy bills.

And regular WeCare furnace maintenance will also prolong the life of your unit and put more money back in your pocket.

Precision tune-up checklist

Furnace tuneup

The tune-up performed on your furnace by your Haven Home ClimateCare furnace expert includes things like:

  • Clearing out or replacing the air filter.
  • Cleaning and repairing the combustion chamber.
  • Assessing and tightening electrical and gas connections.
  • Cleaning and repairing the blower compartment.
  • Washing or lubricating all moving parts, including motor and blower-shaft bearings.
  • Checking that safety switches and thermostat are operating properly.
  • Cleaning condensate from the drain line.

This ensures your furnace is ready for whatever Old Man Winter can throw at it.
