Checking the heat exchanger

It is only the middle of September, but already there is a chill in the air.

The weather has quickly turned wet and nasty.

The leaves are changing colors, falling to the ground and leaving the branches bare. It seems as if winter will arrive earlier than usual this year. I always worry about being prepared for the harsh weather. In my local area, winter is a long and difficult challenge. For around six to eight months, we can expect outside temperatures well below freezing. The wind chill makes it feel even colder. At times, the temperature can drop into the negatives. We deal with an endless accumulation of snow, white-outs and icy roads. We spend a fortune on plowing the driveway, rock salt, four-wheel drive vehicles and snow tires. Approximately fifty percent of household energy consumption is devoted to heating. In order to keep my furnace working at its best, I make sure to schedule professional maintenance in the fall. A licensed technician thoroughly inspects all components and checks for any potential concerns. Through careful adjustment and replacement of broken parts, he promotes greater reliability. The HVAC technician also cleans the inner workings, removing any buildup of debris that might restrict airflow or degrade air quality. He tightens electrical connections, lubricates moving parts, checks the heat exchanger and verifies the accuracy of the thermostat. Preventative service doesn’t take all that long or cost all that much, but provides a long list of benefits. I spend less on monthly bills, minimize impact on the environment and enjoy a cleaner, healthier and more comfortable for home.
