  • Clean or replace your filter as needed.
  • Tighten all electrical connections and measure voltage and current on motors. Faulty electrical connections can shut your system down and, worse yet, lead to an electrical fire.
  • Lubricate all moving parts. That lessens the amount of friction between parts and helps keep your electricity bill in line.
  • Inspect heat exchanger for cracks or wear and tear. A crack or leak in your heat exchanger can send dangerous levels of carbon monoxide gas into your home.

  • Check your flue pipe for corrosion. A properly working flue pipe vents carbon monoxide outside to help keep your family safe from harm.
  • Start and test your furnace to ensure it’s working properly.
