5 Tips For Maintaining Your Furnace

Winter is almost here, so what kind of shape is your furnace in? ABA is a furnace repair contractor in Austin, and we get a lot of phone calls from concerned Austin area homeowners who want to know what they can be doing to keep their home's furnace in good shape. Regardless of whether you have a gas or electric heater, you need to be doing what you can to keep this heater system in good shape.

5 tips for maintaining your furnace this winter:
  1. Check to be sure that the pilot light is burning. There are some units that when the light goes out, they have to be re-lit by hand.
  2. Check the blower and carefully vacuum out any built-up dust or debris in or around the heater.
  3. Check the top and bottom of the unit for any signs of corrosion, or rust.
  4. Check the flue for any gaps or dents that could prevent it from ventilating properly.
  5. Check to make sure that furniture, boxes, curtains, rugs, etc. are far enough away from the unit so that they don't inhibit air flow or potentially cause a fire.
If you notice a gas smell in your home, CONTACT ABA IMMEDIATELY. This is incredibly dangerous and could lead to an explosion or even death! Trying to repair your furnace yourself can be dangerous, as most systems have high voltage, or main gas systems leading into the unit. By thinking you could save some money on your repair by doing it yourself, you could potentially do more harm than good to either yourself, or your home.

Call 512-687-1463 to schedule an appointment with an ABA furnace repair technician today. We offer fast appointment times, and professional service. To talk with a heater repair or replacement professional today, call now.

  7. I wish I would have come across this post at the beginning of the winter season. I had no idea how important it was to maintain the furnace and because I didn't take any measures it has stopped working. I just really hope the repairs don't cost me too much.

  12. You have a great list of tips here! I already knew about a couple of these, but I never thought to check if my furniture was too close to the unit. I'll have to see if that's an issue later. It's always so important to maintain your heating units in your home. You don't want to risk making it run poorly or it will cost you.

  19. Thanks for posting these furnace maintenance tips. I recently changed my air filter, but I'm not sure of what else I should do to maintain my heater. Vacuuming any built-up dust or debris in my heater seems like a great maintenance tip that I should know. I haven't vacuumed it out yet, so I'll check my blower and clean out any debris that may be around or inside of my heater.

  20. Usually my husband does all of the maintenance checks around the home, however I do want to learn so that I can help! So I'm glad that I was able to find this article, especially because it explains what you need to check, and what to do if things aren't working properly. I was wondering however, if having a small dent on the side would cause any serious issues? Thanks!
