Maintenance to Keep Your HVAC System Efficient and Reliable Through the Winter
We all know how cold the winters in Asheville can be. Because of the chilly temperatures, you need a system that keeps your home comfortable and runs efficiently. With proper routine maintenance, your furnace will have a lower risk of failure to keep you warm and cozy. When you call for a professional HVAC technician from 1st Choice Service Group Heating & Air, we will inspect your unit and take a few steps to keep your furnace running smoothly through the winter.
Change the Air Filter
The air filter in your furnace keeps dirt and debris out of your heating unit and keeps your indoor air fresh. This filter should be changed or cleaned at least once a year.
Lubricate Moving Parts
Moving parts create friction. Over time, this friction can damage the components of your furnace. Lubrication of certain parts is necessary to reduce wear and tear and premature failure.
Inspect Mechanical Components
Some parts of your furnace will eventually break down and require repairs or replacement. Your HVAC technician will inspect the different mechanical parts and look for signs of damage that indicate impending failure.
Inspect the Belt
If your furnace has a belt, it should be checked for cracks and other signs of damage. The belt may also become worn and loose over time. If the belt is loose, cracked, or otherwise damaged, it should be replaced immediately to ensure the proper function of your furnace.
Listen and Smell
When your technician checks over your furnace, they should listen for strange noises and note any odd odors. Noises and smells that shouldn’t be present indicate improper function and should be addressed immediately for safety and reliability issues.
