Furnace Inspection: A New Beginning for the Furnace

Though our New Year doesn’t begin until January 1, there has always been something about the beginning of September that feels like a fresh start.  Maybe it is due to so many years of September meaning the end of summer and the beginning of a new school year.  The excitement of being in an older grade and wondering what your teacher would be like that year.


September isn’t just a fresh start for students and teachers.  It is also a fresh start for your furnace.  The beginning of fall means that it is time to start thinking about a furnace inspection (even if the temperatures outside don’t quite feel like it yet).  In fact, furnace inspections are one of the most important things you can do for your furnace.  They improve its safety and efficiency as well as prolong its life.  Your furnace inspection will include (but not be limited to):



  • Cleaning the Motor and Fan.
  • Inspecting the heat exchanger for cracks-a cracked heat exchanger is one of the most serious problems.  Carbon monoxide, which is deadly, could leak out.  It is imperative that this is checked on a yearly basis.
  • Checking the blower.
  • Changing the filter-a clean filter means an efficient furnace and a home with clean air!

You and your furnace will both appreciate this new beginning for the furnace.  For more information, contact A.B. May.  Happy September!
