Furnace Maintenance in Layton
Correctly maintaining your furnace will go a long way to improve the overall efficiency of the furnace. We often see furnaces that click on often to keep the heat at a consistent level in the home. If a furnace is constantly turning on, it will cause the motor to wear out quickly. Our job is to find the problem with the furnace to figure out why it is struggling to keep your home warm.
One thing we recommend is testing the insulation level in your home. Heat can escape quickly through the attic if you do not have appropriate levels of insulation. Try adding a layer of insulation to your home to see if it helps to reduce your heating bill next month.
The HVAC Utah Furnace Maintenance Way
How does our furnace maintenance service differ from other HVAC companies in Layton? While a furnace system requires similar servicing throughout the industry, we bring a team of experts with appropriate training on a large variety of HVAC systems. We can handle jobs with older furnaces that aren’t quite ready to be replaced, but just need a basic tune-up to work well in the cold Utah winter months. At HVAC Utah, we believe in honesty and are committed to providing you with high quality work for your dollar.
Cleaning the Furnace
While homeowners can help a furnace to run efficiently by changing the air filter, we take the extra step to improve the overall efficiency of your furnace. We will clean the blower motor, which often accumulates dust and debris over years of hard work. The motor needs to be inspected and cleaned as well since it can wear down quickly if it has a lot of dust accumulation.
Testing the Pilot Light
One thing many of our customers tell us is they have problems getting the pilot light to stay on. If this happens to you, call us today to schedule a furnace maintenance appointment. A pilot light is normally switched off during the summer months, but a pilot light that will not stay on can mean a serious problem. We will test your furnace to find out if you need a simple repair job, or if your furnace is starting to show it’s age. In the meantime, try these steps to see if your pilot light will turn on:
- Find the pilot light assembly, which most likely has a gas valve labeled “on” and “off.”
- Turn to “off” and wait for three minutes for the system to shut down completely.
- Switch to “pilot” and hold a match to it while pushing the reset button on the control panel. Keep pressing until the flame burns consistently, and then turn the switch on.
Why We Recommend Servicing a Furnace
We recommend a yearly service of your furnace before the cold weather strikes to make sure your system is ready to handle the stress of the winter. A furnace will undergo a lot of hard work, and without the right tune-up job, it can end up with a gas leak and other problems.
