These are all the services we will perform on you Total Comfort Heating Tune-up
Contact Us for Furnace Maintenance in Redding, CA
Inspect heat exchanger. A visual inspection will be performed, verifying the integrity, deterioration and overall condition of the heat exchanger.
Clean/inspect burners. Burners will be removed and thoroughly brushed, cleaned and vacuumed. All burners will be inspected for rust, deterioration and overall condition. Burner port, orifices, cross lighters, pilot burner and air adjustment will be cleaned and inspected for obstructions and overall condition.
Clean/inspect flue draft diverter/motor. The flue draft diverter will be thoroughly brushed, cleaned and vacuumed. The diverter area will be inspected for rust, deterioration, and condition. In most cases we can clean and inspect the top of the heat exchanger through the draft diverter/motor and verify integrity of the heat exchanger.
Inspect the venting system. We will inspect the flue gas vent system to insure proper venting, condition of the vent material and that there are no obstructions. The flue draft will be visually inspected for proper draft.
Inspect blower assembly.
Clean/replace air filters. Dirty air filters restrict proper airflow required for maximum heating, increase energy costs, cause the blower motor to work harder, risking blower assembly and can even overheat your heat exchanger.
Measure fuel pressure. Proper fuel pressure is necessary for maximum heating capacity and efficiency. Fuel pressure, too low or too high, will affect the burner operation and affect the BTU or heating capacity of your furnace which impacts its operating efficiency.
Tighten wiring connections. Loose connections can cause intermittent breakdowns. Also, loose connections on high voltage lines can increase the amperage draw on motors and controls resulting in high electrical usage and the potential for costly repairs.
Measure volts/amps. We make certain electrical components are functioning properly and check for potential repair problems and breakdowns. This can help conserve energy and help you save money on energy costs.
Monitor air temperatures. Determining air temperatures and temperature rise is another step in the process of ensuring your heating system is performing at its maximum capacity and efficiency. The degree of temperature rise is critical for proper heating temperature; if it is too high it could possibly damage your heat exchanger.
Lubricating required parts. All components that require lubrication on the furnace will be inspected and lubricated as necessary.
Thermostat calibration/level. The thermostat controls the temperature in the home as well as the cycle rate of the heating burners. If the thermostat is out of calibration or level it can affect your comfort (too warm/too cool) and cause extended or shortened run time which burns energy dollars and damage to your system.
Inspect safety controls. Safety controls are an integral part of your heating system and prevent damage to the main components in your furnace in case of a malfunction. We will inspect and monitor to help ensure the safety controls are functioning properly.
Wiping off the furnace. Our technicians will spray and wipe off your furnace of any debris that may have been created while performing this tune-up and to help maintain its appearance.
