Furnace Repair and Maintenance in Cincinnati

Furnace maintenance is recommended on a yearly basis in the fall to insure your heating system will be performing at its optimal level on those cold Cincinnati winter nights.  Like air conditioner maintenance in the spring, your heating system also requires maintenance to ensure proper functioning and efficiency, and to prevent any inconvenient mid-winter furnace repair.

A furnace that is not running properly will not only cost you more in the long run, but it can also be a health hazard. A safety check can help identify damaged and defective equipment, and other potential problems.  Below is a list of the minimal checks and services that should be performed to verify the performance of your heating equipmen

  • Clean & adjust burner assembly
  • Test ignition components / Clean Pilot
  • Inspect heat exchanger
  • Inspect flue & monitor draft
  • Lubricate all necessary parts
  • Tighten electrical connections
  • Measure voltage & amperage
  • Check & set gas pressure
  • Vacuum clean & inspect blower compartment
  • Clear & flush condensate drains
  • Check thermostat operation / Reset Evolution control
  • Carbon monoxide test on furnace
  • Clean & check condenser coil
  • Record temperature drop & pressures
  • Test heat strips, reversing valve, & defrost cycle (Heat Pump)
  • Replace oil filter & nozzle (Oil Furnace)
  • Check fill valve, drain expansion tank, flush low water cutoff, and lubricate pump & bearing assembly (Boiler)
  • Combustion analysis

Should there be a burning smell when I first turn on my furnace?  When you turn your thermostat up for the first time this season, you may notice a “burning” or “burnt dust” smell. Not to worry, this is normal, and the smell should subside fairly quickly. If the smell does not go away within a reasonable amount of time, this could mean your ducts need to be cleaned of excessive dust and debris.

Should I worry about Carbon Monoxide? This is a common concern for homeowners when starting their furnace or heating equipment for the first time of the season in Cincinnati. Carbon Monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is produced by most gas furnaces. Though these small quantities are usually blown out via ventilation process, cracks and leaks in your system can lead to higher Carbon Monoxide levels in your home, which can be extremely dangerous.

What furnace repair would I need if I don’t perform maintenance on my system? Whatever your furnace issues in Cincinnati, our professionals at National Heating and Air can answer your questions and put you at ease, ensuring that you and your family will stay warm and comfortable throughout the winter months.
