Fall is here, which means winter is not far behind. That means it will be time to crank up the furnace soon. Ideally, your furnace should be inspected by a heating professional at least once a year just before its initial start-up for the season. The first step in a furnace tune-up is to check the filters. A filter is to protect the blower from dust and dirt which could damage the motor. When a filter becomes clogged, it will make the furnace motor work harder and could result in an increase in your utility bill and decreased efficiency. You also need to make sure the pilot light is burning. A technician will then check the blower and vacuum out dust and debris in and around the unit, as well as lubrication of the blower motor.
