Labor Day Means Furnace Inspection

Labor Day Weekend is here again.  Etiquette says this means it is the last time we can wear white until next summer and stores such as Staples are jam packed with parents and kids buying last minute back to school supplies.  Though fall doesn’t officially start until September 22 (The Old Farmer’s Almanac), this weekend often seems to signify the end of summer.  So what does that mean for your home?  It means that even though you may still be sweating through 80 degree temperatures for the next month, it is about time to begin thinking about caring for your furnace.

One of the most important things you can do for your furnace is have it inspected on an annual basis.  Keeping your furnace regularly maintained actually prolongs its life.  The inspections include but are not limited to:

  • Changing the filter-this is incredibly important for the cleanliness of your home’s air and the efficiency of your furnace.
  • Inspecting the heat exchanger for cracks-a cracked heat exchanger can leak carbon monoxide, which can be deadly for you and your family.
  • Checking that the blower is running properly.
  • Cleaning the Fan and Motor

Therefore, in between trying to get into the doctor’s office for last minute back to school physicals, and buying a new rake, take time to think about your furnace.  You will be glad you did when the temperatures drop!  Contact Flame for more information!  Happy Labor Day!
