Furnace Inspection List

*We Maintain and service all brands and models

Furnace Image
  • Thermostat
    Verify that the thermostat is working correctly and calibrated properly. Ensure it is set to the desired temperature and cycles the furnace on and off appropriately.
  • Air Filters
    Check and replace air filters if necessary. Clogged filters can restrict airflow, reducing efficiency and potentially causing damage to the furnace.
  • Burners
    Inspect the burners for any signs of corrosion, rust, or debris buildup. Clean the burners if needed to ensure proper combustion.
  • Ignition System
    Test the ignition system (whether it's a pilot light or electronic ignition) to ensure it's functioning properly. Replace any faulty components as needed.
  • Furnace Heat Exchanger
    Inspect the heat exchanger for cracks or signs of damage. A cracked heat exchanger can lead to carbon monoxide leaks, which pose a serious safety hazard.

  • Electrical Components
    Inspect all electrical connections, wires, and components for signs of wear or damage. Tighten any loose connections and replace any faulty parts.
  • Safety Controls
    Test all safety controls, including limit switches and pressure switches, to ensure they're functioning correctly and shutting down the furnace when necessary.
  • Thermocouple or Flame Sensor Inspection
    Check the thermocouple (for pilot light ignition systems) or flame sensor (for electronic ignition systems) for proper operation. Clean or replace these components if they are dirty or malfunctioning.
  • System Calibration and Optimization
    Calibrate the furnace controls and settings for optimal performance and efficiency. This may involve adjusting the ignition timing, gas flow rate, and other parameters based on the manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Documentation and Recommendations
    Provide the homeowner with a detailed report of the maintenance performed, including any issues found and recommendations for repairs or upgrades.
