Gas Furnace MaintenanceKeeping your furnace properly maintained is key to keeping it running properly. Of course, hiring a professional for everything can get expensive. There are several aspects of gas furnace maintenance that you can take care of yourself, and there are other things that you should leave to a pro. Here is a basic list of ways to keep your gas furnace maintained and who should perform them.

Inspect Your Furnace for Damage

One of the most important things you can do yourself is to keep an eye on your furnace. Inspect the outside of your furnace and look for any holes, cracks, or rust. If you find that your furnace is damaged, don’t turn it on. Call a professional right away. Running a damaged furnace can be incredibly dangerous.

Change Your Filter

Your filter will need to be replaced on a pretty regular basis when you run your heating during the cold season. Depending on how often you use it, you may need to replace your filter as often as every other month! As long as you know where your filter is located, you can do this yourself.

Clean and Check Inner Components

Depending on how handy you are, you may be able to do this yourself. If you feel uncomfortable about disassembling and reassembling the inner components of your furnace, you will want to contact a professional. Always remember to cut the power and gas to your furnace before working on it. Always wear protective gear including a face mask to prevent breathing in dust, rust, and soot.

If you are in need of professional gas furnace maintenance, don’t just call anyone! Call the experts you can trust at Western Heating and Air Conditioning. Call today to schedule your appointment with our trained technicians.

I care about how I'm treated by the technician and that's why I'll use this company while Ben is employed there. He knows what he is doing with the cleaning of my heater, and and he cares about my feelings as a person while he is there. Thanks!

Wesley arrived and did maintenance as well as made sure everything was in working order. He explained some of the issues I had been experiencing and why they were happening. Very knowledgeable and professional. Wesley has been to our house before. When he's done i feel confident and assured that we have been taken care of and have been given sound advice for home maintenance between checkups. Thanks again for the quick response even though I know you guys are so busy.
