When to maintain your furnace and how – Family Issues
If you adhere to the guidelines above, there is no need for another furnace repair.
For safety, you’ll require gloves, and a vacuum and a furnace filter and a screwdriver or nut driver. Before beginning any work on the furnace, be sure that the power is turned off and then close the gas valve.
1. Replace the furnace
A furnace’s filter has to be replaced at least every 3 or 6 months. Get the furnace filter out, clean it and then look over the place.
Take off the cover and then use a vacuum cleaner to get rid of the dust inside. Call a professional if you discover a hole in the heat exchanger. Get a professional’s help if notice any burn marks or wires that have burned on the burner’s assembly, as well.
Step 3: Wash the Blower.
The covers for the blower’s panel must be removed prior to removing the cover. If the control board is in close proximity to the blower unhook it by disconnecting all of the wires. Then, remove the blower and clean it with a brush and vacuum. Replace the blower and the control board. Finally, place the cover onto the panel.
Step 4: Reconnect the furnace.
The panel must be fully aligned and properly secured. Open the gas valve and turn on the heating system’s power.
