December, 2014 by

If you’re a business owner, you know the importance of a dependable furnace. To keep your heating system from breaking down at the worst possible moment, contact an experienced company that provides Commercial Furnace Maintenance for regular service to your unit. Below you’ll discover frequently asked questions about maintaining your heating system.

Q.) What does a technician do when performing furnace maintenance?

A.) When a technician arrives at your home for a maintenance check, every part of your furnace will be thoroughly checked out. This includes the air filter, fan, gas valve, burners, belt, pulley and motor. The technician will also inspect the oil ports and lubricate them if necessary. The technician will turn on the unit and listen for any noises or unusual sounds coming from your furnace.

Q.) What should be done on a regular basis to keep a commercial furnace running proficiently?

A.) Between visits from a professional technician for maintenance, there are some simple things that you can do yourself. Change the air filter on your furnace every month to keep sufficient airflow through the unit. Once a year, use your vacuum attachments to clean the dust from the blower and fan. When an excessive amount of dust builds up on these components, your furnace could get too hot and overheat. After checking out your furnace, inspect your duct work and look for obstructions, cracks, leaks and bad connections. You may also want to have your duct work cleaned to lessen the amount of airborne particles that flow into your building.

Q.) What are the steps to take for a heating emergency?

A.) During an emergency situation, first turn off the fuel supply if you have a gas furnace. If the fuel lines are bad, gas could leak out and cause a fire or explosion. You should also unplug the electrical power source to your furnace. After taking these steps, call an experienced company, such as Eastside Inc., that specializes in Commercial Furnace Maintenance to repair your unit.
