Preventative Furnace Maintenance

Preventative furnace maintenance will help you safeguard against expensive breakdowns and malfunctions in the future. During your precision tune up, we check all components of your equipment, including:

  • Heat Exchanger: We will inspect for deterioration and cracks.
    • Value to You: Heat exchangers can develop cracks with age. If your unit has any cracks or holes, there is serious risk of illness from the toxic fumes emitted.
  • Burners: Will be cleaned as needed.
    • Value to You: Dirty burners can cause poor combustion. You may be paying for useful heat that isn’t making it to your living spaces.
  • Pilot: Will be cleaned and adjusted as required.
    • Value to You: A week or dirty pilot can be easily extinguished, causing your furnace to shut off.
  • Flue Pipe: Will be inspected
    • Value to You: Flue pipes can corrode or leak, emitting toxic fumes into your home.
  • Flame Sensor: Will be cleaned.
    • Value to You: A dirty flame sensor can cause your furnace to shut down and your ignition module to become locked out.

Because dirt is the main reason for equipment failure, regular maintenance will almost eradicate the need for emergency repair. Preventative maintenance will also help delay the more expensive option of furnace replacement. Scheduling regular furnace maintenance will provide you with the ability to order replacement parts and schedule time for furnace repair, before something breaks on the coldest night of the year!

The Benefits of Furnace Maintenance in Plainfield

In our years of replacing heating systems, we’ve seen the benefits of preventive HVAC maintenance. We also know the best way to ensure long-term comfort for you and your family is to call us for regular equipment service. But, we know the additional cost of these tune-ups can make being proactive much less appealing. Before getting too hung up on the money, however, know that the benefits of heating maintenance far outweigh the costs. Reasons to subscribe to preventative service include:

  • Warranty Requirements: Do you want to be on the hook for a breakdown in the first few years of your furnace’s life? If not, you’ll need to find an "HVAC company near me" to handle your Plainfield furnace maintenance. Most manufacturers require you to provide tune-up records prior to fulfilling warranty repairs.
  • Reduced Chance of Breakdown: Scheduling regular maintenance isn’t a guarantee that your system won’t fail, but it can drastically reduce the likelihood. While examining your system, our heating technician will look for any signs of damage or component failure and will have the opportunity to fix the system proactively. That will help you escape the need for emergency service in extreme weather when faltering equipment often fails.
  • More Effective Home Heating: During the tune-up, our HVAC technician will clean and calibrate your furnace. They will make necessary adjustments to control and blower speed to ensure optimal airflow. This means fewer nights with cold feet and heavy blankets.
  • Fuel and Energy Savings: When properly maintained and installed, your furnace doesn’t have to fight as hard to heat your home. This means less wasted energy and lower energy bills in Plainfield and Joliet.
  • Maximize System Lifespan: A new furnace isn’t cheap and can cost thousands to replace. The last thing you want to do is shorten your equipment’s lifespan by skipping needed maintenance. We often see systems that receive regular tune-ups outlast poorly maintained ones by five years or more.
With all of those benefits, it's hard not to see the value of regular furnace tune-ups in Plainfield. Call Rousculp's Heating & Cooling for your yearly maintenance and experience the benefits of proactiveness first hand.

Skipping Furnace Maintenance Can Be Dangerous

Depending on what’s wrong, a broken or worn-out furnace is more than an inconvenience. It can be dangerous—even fatal. This is doubly true for homes with furnaces over 10 years old. As time passes, the likelihood of a part or heat exchanger failure increases, upping the opportunity for fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. While scanning your system, Rousculp's's HVAC technicians will pay close attention to these potential safety hazards. If we find you or your family is in danger, we’ll recommend options for repair or furnace replacement.

What Our HVAC Maintenance Program Covers

Furnaces are complex machines assembled from numerous precision parts. When one component fails, your entire system is at risk of damage or breakdown. And, because many heating issues are symptomless, you could go months or years with an undetected problem. Over time, this small, invisible issue can snowball into a major problem.

During comprehensive furnace maintenance, our technician will look at all parts for signs of wear and damage. While handling your heating tune-up in Plainfield, you can expect our employees to:

  • Make sure your heating system starts without issues
  • Measure and adjust your blower's airflow
  • Clean and dust ignition assembly
  • Inspect your flue assembly
  • Replace worn belts and parts
  • Test the electronic and safety controls
  • Examine the coil, burner, and blower
  • Clean or replace your filter
  • Inspect the unit for signs of dampness or rust
  • Measure and adjust your gas pressure
Once we've finished your furnace tune-up in Plainfield, you can face the year's first cold snap with confidence. If something does come up, however, our local HVAC company is here to remedy the problem.
