Furnace maintenance in Brentwood, MO, is a must-have for any homeowner who wants to save money. The fact is that a furnace tune-up can provide you with savings in both the long and short run. Tune-ups eliminate a lot of issues within a system, many of them hidden, and thus improve the system’s operation. This boost in efficiency can have a positive impact on how much you pay each month. Besides that, the issues that a tune-up addresses won’t grow into big problems requiring big repairs. At the most, you may need to request one or two minor fixes during the year.

Above all, a well-maintained furnace can last the full number of years it’s supposed to. For gas furnaces, that means around 15 years. For electric and oil furnaces, it comes to around 25 years. Considering how costly a system replacement is, you’ll be happy knowing that you can put it off for many more years to come. In the meantime, you also don’t have to worry about the warranty becoming void since professional maintenance will protect it.

Our Furnace Maintenance Services

Tune-ups begin with a visual inspection of the system, inside and out, and proceed to various adjustments and repairs. Some issues, though, can be too serious for a maintenance visit to cover. However, you’ll at least find out in a report at the end that you’re facing such an issue.

Here’s some of what maintenance covers:
  • Heat exchanger check and cleaning
  • Check of the limit switch and safety controls
  • Cleaning for the burners
  • Lubrication for the motor bearings

Cleaning is essential to maintenance because dirt and dust buildup can contribute to overheating and premature wear and tear. Our technicians could also address potentially hazardous situations like loose or corroded electrical wiring. Leak detection falls under maintenance, too. You’ll get a heads-up regarding any gas leaks in the heat exchanger or air leaks in the ducts. Lastly, you can expect all the basics like air filter replacement and the calibration of your thermostat’s sensors, though you should replace your filter on your own every two to three months.
