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.

Tyler and Carter were efficient, helpful, and courteous. They walked us through our new system and explained everything so we could use and maintain the system after they left. Great experience!

Brady and LT (and the entire Western Heating & Air Team) have been amazing through a less than ideal scenario. Our outdoor unit with our ductless system was having issues and completely went down on two occasions. Once they figured out the issue, they got a warranty claim in process and quickly got the new unit installed (Brady and LT are true professionals and pros at what they do). Our family feels in good hands with Western Heating and Air, and appreciate all the compassion and hard work to help us through this less than ideal scenario with the problems we had with the outdoor unit. THANK YOU!
