Q: Why Should my furnace be serviced yearly?
A: Furnaces are hard working machines. They endure thermal stress as they cycle on and off.
Because of this, important parts, such as the heat exchanger may crack and fail.
A Furnace with a cracked heat exchanger
Fans that circulate air often tend to vibrate. These vibrations may loosen exhaust pipes, gas fittings, and vacuum hoses.
High efficiency furnaces use multiple sensors, switches and hoses.
Sensors, like the flame sensor must be working correctly otherwise the furnace may fail to operate.
Likewise, the many hoses may become clogged or cracked and cause failure.
A yearly inspection and/or service can help prevent these types of failures.
