Here are some tips to make your relationship with your furnace flourish.
Keep it clean
Show it you care by doing some house keeping around your furnace. Move anything that can burn including; wood, cardboard, paint and paper at least six feet away. Clear space to dance around your furnace makes it easy to work on.
Tune it up to make sweet music
This is especially important for oil burning furnaces. Oil burners are robust. They keep on working, even when they are way out of tune. They continue to eat up fuel oil when their efficiency is very low. The worse they are the more they get out of shape.
You do not need a piano tuner, but you do need a furnace pro to do a full safety check, clean up and adjustment every year.
Natural gas and propane furnaces have a less sensitive nature. But, you will have relationship problems if you neglect them too long. They need the full clean, check and adjust treatment at least every two years.
A furnace that plays in tune makes sweet music for you.
Gifts to keep your relationship humming
Your furnace will love you back if you buy it a new filter every month or two. Furnace filters protect your furnace from harmful dirt and help you breath easier.
Surprise your furnace with a drop of oil on the fan bearings and motor bearings. Do not over do it. It is like perfume. A little is wonderful, but too much spoils the atmosphere.
If your furnace wears a belt, you should give it a new one every few years, as a fashion statement. Fan belts on your furnace are like fan belts on your car. They do wear out and it is best to replace them before they fail.
Don’t wait until it is too late or your furnace will leave you cold.
