When furnace maintenance is mentioned, most people think about getting all the components checked for issues to prevent a breakdown, but there’s an important part of maintenance that homeowners might not think about: cleaning. The furnace needs to be regularly cleaned as well as inspected to keep it working properly.
The furnace can get loaded down the dust and debris over the years, which lowers its efficiency. There are many components that need cleaned to keep it working at an optimal level. Some of these are:
- Heat Exchanger
Heat exchangers are a very important component in the furnace. Once it becomes dirty, the heat exchanger can begin to malfunction, needing repaired or replaced.
Burners can fail due to contamination. If they are covered in dirt, dust, and debris, it could disrupt the flow of gas and air.
- Flame Sensor
When the furnace is having an issue staying on, the issue is likely a dirty flame sensor. This build-up of sediment won’t allow it to work properly.
These components, plus the entire furnace cabinet are thoroughly cleaned during Diamond Heating and Cooling’s furnace maintenance services. Homeowners should not attempt to clean these components themselves because furnaces deal with electricity and gas, two items that can be harmful when handled improperly. It’s much safer to call in a professional for furnace cleaning.
