Early June might seem like an odd time to think about furnace service in Bothell. But what better time? Complete Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning understands that every part of your house affects the inside environment. Chances are, your furnace and air conditioner share the same ducts for heating and cooling your home. You certainly don’t want to have your furnace out of operations in the middle of winter.
There are a number of things that should be checked or taken care of on your furnace in the spring or early summer. The duct-work needs cleaning. If it is a gas or oil furnace, the pilot light and fuel intake might need to be turned off for the summer. A pilot light can noticeably add to the heat inside your home, and can also run up your energy bill. If it is an electric furnace, the heating coils need to be checked for wear. All furnaces and space heaters need the dust and dirt that collects (even with the most careful housekeeping) inside the blower motors and fans. This basic checklist will make your autumn start-up of your furnace a much easier process.
Spring and early summer are also good times to check seals on doors and windows, and to investigate that odd draft that seems be coming out of nowhere. Houses settle as they age – even those with excellent foundations – and this will affect your ability to control your interior/exterior air exchange.
