Your 12-Month Heating and Aircon Servicing Schedule
It is very important to keep your furnace well-maintained and in good repair. The last thing you
want to have happen is for the heating system to break down in the middle of the winter. A
furnace that is neglected can also emit dangerous carbon monoxide into your house, which can
endanger the health of your family. On the other hand, a well-maintained furnace will prolong the
life of the unit and save on fuel costs. That is why it is so important to do furnace maintenance in
the fall to prepare for the cold months ahead. Here are the major steps you need to take this fall
to get ready for winter.
Step-By-Step Furnace Maintenance Plan:
Step 1 Shut off electricity and gas.
Before you perform any maintenance, be sure that you turn off the fuel supply and electrical
power. There should be a switch on the side of the furnace for shutting off the electricity.
Step 2 Clean the interior of the furnace.
In addition to generating heat, it also produces carbon dioxide, water vapor and carbon soot. Use
a wire brush to scrape off the built-up carbon. Check for corrosion and holes.
Step 3 Inspect the flue pipe.
If the exhaust pipe has holes in it, this could cause carbon monoxide leaks. This is why it's so
important to inspect the flue pipe and check for holes. Foil tape can be used to patch small holes.
However, if the flue is corroded you will need to replace it.
Step 4 Replace the oil filer.
, if you have an oil-powered furnace you will want to replace the oil filter.. Close the oil valve first
and then remove the old oil filter and replace it with a new one.
Step 5 Change the air filter.
During the winter months while you are using your furnace that all of the air that your family
breathes come through the furnace air filter. You should change the air filter at least once a year,
but more frequently is better. During the winter, you may want to change it once a month.
Step 6 Check the fan belt.
Inspect the fan belt that drives the blower on your furnace. Check the belt for signs of fraying,

cracking or glazing. If there are visible signs of any of these, replace the fan belt. Check the belt
tensions. The belt should feel taut when you push down on it.
Step 7 Put the furnace cover back on and reconnect.
Once you have completed all of the above furnace maintenance steps, turn the gas and electrical
power back on. Relight the pilot if necessary.
A furnace that is neglected can also emit dangerous carbon monoxide into your house, which can
