Furnace Safety Check

Furnace Safety Check - Houston, Cypress, Katy, Sugar Land TX & Surrounding Areas

Why is a Yearly Safety Check Important?

When functioning properly, a gas furnace keeps your home warm and comfortable. However, a poorly maintained or installed furnace can put you at risk for dangerous consequences in your home. And as your furnace gets older and works harder, the potential danger grows. That’s why it’s important to schedule an annual repair appointment and get rid of any possible safety concerns you may have.

Furnace Safety Tips for Homeowners

Along with an annual inspection, there are steps that our experts have come up with that you can also follow to make sure your home is safe. These steps can be taken after your yearly checkup to help maintain your heating system’s efficiency.

  • Keeping your blower motor well lubricated with oil. If the unit has oil cups, add a drop to each every once in a while.
  • Keeping the blower free of dirt by vacuuming it periodically, but make sure you shut off its circuit breaker before you do so.
  • Frequently test your exposed ductwork for any air leaks.
  • Check your thermostat’s accuracy. Put an outdoor thermometer on the wall next to the thermostat. Run the furnace and compare the thermometer’s reading to the displayed room temperature.
  • Clean or change your furnace filter once a month during the colder months.
