Expert Tips For Maintaining Your Furnace System
Here are a few tips suggested by our furnace maintenance technicians in Everett, WA, to maintain the furnace system’s smooth and efficient operation
- Clean the Air Filter Regularly
Air filters are one of the essential components in the furnace system assembly as they prevent dirt build-up in the furnace and maintain indoor air quality.
You can use a disposable air filter and replace it monthly for optimum working. You can also invest in a washable air filter that can be cleaned with water and replaced after every three months.
- Clean The Furnace Coils
In a furnace system, the furnace coils are the evaporator coils that deliver the warm air indoors. Dirty evaporator coils are partially responsible for inadequate heat or leakage issues.
For cleaning the evaporator coils, remove the access panel from the coil cabinet by removing the metal tape and screws that secure the access panel.
You can use a rinse less coil cleaner spray to clean the coils and follow up with a soft brush to remove the debris on the surface.
- Clean The Furnace Flame Sensor
A furnace flame sensor is a safety device installed in the furnace system that shuts down the system if there is no flame burning. It looks like a metallic rod, and you can find it near the burner assembly.
There can be a gritty build-up on the flame sensor as it is near the flame. To clean the flame sensor, remove it from the burner assembly and clean it with a damp cloth.
You might need to call our gas furnace repair technician in Everett, WA, to replace the sensor if cleaning does not improve the functioning.
- Clean The Furnace Blower
The furnace blower assembly consists of a motor, fan blades, a squirrel case, and an electrical system. You will need a brush and a vacuum to clean the blower motor and fan.
Experts instruct using a brush to remove the dust from the fan blades, motor housing, and squirrel case. The vacuum will help to clean the blower cabinet appropriately.
