Furnace Preventative Maintenance
In addition to furnace repair, we provide regularly scheduled maintenance and services for your furnace. This is extremely important because as your furnace ages, not only can it experience technical difficulties, but the overall efficiency of the heating system may decrease as well. This has a major effect on your home’s comfort level and your energy bills. When the efficiency drops on your heating system, it has to work harder and longer to try to keep up with your indoor climate needs. The constant running will drastically increase your power bill and wear down the system’s components. This will lead to the efficiency continuing to decrease and accelerated damage to your furnace, which ends with more expensive repairs.
Furnaces and heaters need to be serviced regularly in order to ensure they are functioning normally, and the furnace’s warranty stays intact. You do not want to have a furnace or heater in your home that is at risk of breaking or losing warranty protection. Please call us for regular heater service so that you have peace of mind knowing your heater works properly when you need it. Some simple tips for furnace care and repair that you can do yourself are checking and replacing the furnace filter and if your pilot light burns out, try relighting it. But as a rule of thumb, you should always call for professional help like that you receive from the Yellow Dot team to perform any considerable repairs to your furnace. We have the training and experience to fix it right the first time.

Do-It-Yourself Furnace Troubleshooting Tips
If you do not remember the last time you inspected your home’s furnace, it’s encouraged you do so to ensure everything is in proper working order. Below you’ll find several do-it-yourself recommendations in order to make certain your furnace is not in need of urgent maintenance or repair. After completing an initial inspection, should you become concerned or discover a problem/issue, our certified furnace technicians are standing by to assist you.
- Replace the furnace air filters. Air filters should be replaced every 30-90 days depending on the amount of dust and pet hair in your home.
- While the thermostat is in heat mode and the furnace is on, check the supply register (small vents throughout the house) and the return air register (the large vent, typically situated in a hallway). After a few minutes feel to see if the air feels warm or stays cold.
- Wipe clean and level your home’s thermostats.
Duct and venting systems over time can suffer from wear and tear. Search for rust or gaps in duct work or piping. If you see any gaps, this is a strong indication your furnace is losing its energy efficiency and likely costing you more on monthly energy bills.
- Remove boxes or items from around your home’s heating equipment. Clutter around the furnace could impede your maintenance service or provide a combustible fuel source in the event of an electrical problem.
In addition to providing furnace repair and service we also carry a wide variety of furnaces in stock when your furnace needs to be upgraded.
