Furnace and Boiler Maintenance and Tune-Up

Maintaining your Northeast Ohio home’s heating system

The importance of routine furnace and boiler maintenance

Furnace and boilers are expensive but essential elements of any Northeast Ohio home’s comfort. To protect your investment and make sure that your heating system is functioning optimally for as many years as possible, it is well worth the cost of hiring a Cleveland heating company to conduct annual maintenance checks. In addition to saving you money over the long run, routine maintenance is needed to catch any minor issues that could spell disaster if left unchecked, including dangerous ventilation concerns or water leaks.

What services should a professional heating technician perform annually?

Easy and relatively inexpensive annual tune-ups ensure that your Cleveland heating system is functioning properly when you need it the most. The most common services performed by a licensed contractor when tuning up a heating system include:

For boilers (hot water or steam heating systems):

  • Checking the ventilation system for gas leaks that can lead to dangerous carbon monoxide buildup in the home
  • Adjusting the boiler’s thermostat to ensure that it responds to cycling the system.
  • Testing the pressure-relief valve and high-limit safety control
  • Inspecting the heat exchanger, cleaning the burners and flame sensor, and inspecting the pressure tank

For furnaces (forced-air heating systems):

  • Checking the combustion chamber for cracks
  • Testing for carbon monoxide leaks and fixing them if needed
  • Adjusting the blower control and supply-air temperature
  • Cleaning and oiling the blower
  • Checking the furnace’s fuel input and flame characteristics, and adjusting them if necessary
  • Sealing any loose connections between the furnace and main air ducts
