Part of our 30-point tune-up and inspection furnace maintenance includes:

  • Checking for Proper Airflow: Problems with airflow through the ductwork create a strain on your furnace. The added strain results in shortened furnace life and leads to breakdowns and other problems, easily avoidable with annual maintenance.
  • Reducing Repairs: Every winter, Distinct Heating and Cooling receives numerous calls from homeowners because their furnaces are not working. Most of the time, many of these problems could have been prevented with regular maintenance. Our experts look for problems with your home heating system before they occur and turn into major repairs.
  • Keeping Your Home Safe: Furnaces use a combustion process to generate heat using natural gas, electricity, or other energy source while producing carbon monoxide. Furnace maintenance checks and verifies the furnace is burning correctly and there are no leaks in the heating system so you do not have to worry about the safety and health of your family.
  • Increasing Energy Efficiency: Our furnace tune-up insure that your furnace as running at peak efficiency so your utility bills will be as low as possible.
  • Protecting Manufacturers’ Warranties: Many manufacturers have a clause in their furnace warranties which stipulates you are required to maintain the furnace on a regular basis. Failing to do so, can result in your warranty being voided.
  • Saving You Time and Money: Scheduling furnace maintenance services during the warmer spring and summer months is much better than waiting until winter when service calls are at their peak. It is no fun waiting on a repair person in a cold home without any heat. It can also be less expensive during the offseason.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Q: How often does my furnace filter need to be changed?

A: This depends on the filter system that you have in place. Standard-sized 16 x 25 x 1 filters need to be replaced at least every 2-3 months. If you have a larger media air filter (20 x 25 x 5), these should be changed once a year. However, if your family or a family member has asthma, allergies, or if you have heavy shedding pets, your filters may need to be changed more often.

Q: How often should I clean my furnace?

A: There are varying answers to this question. Dust and debris can hinder the performance of your furnace, and cleaning around it and the internal compartment will help to maximize its efficiency. We would suggest that this is done at least once per year to ensure that it is operating as designed. However, the internal compartment has many components that require a working knowledge of them. During your annual maintenance, your furnace repair and maintenance professional will be able to tell you if the unit’s internal compartment requires cleaning.
Indicators for a dirty furnace and ducts:
1. Open one of your vent covers and look inside. Check if the inside contains any dirt, debris, or matted dust.
2. Examine the return air registers for dust buildup, particularly if there are thick and fuzzy coatings of dust.
3. Pull out your air filter. If the air filter is clogged with dust, then air flow is being restricted. This causes more dust to settle and build up in the return ducts as well as other areas of the unit.
4. Open the furnace compartment. Examine the blower fan, motor, and furnace controls for signs of dust. The more dust you see, the bigger the problem you may have.
