Furnace Service and Repair
Serving Vancouver WA | Clark County Washington
The appliance you depend on to keep you warm is depending on you to keep up the routine maintenance. Inspecting is more than checking the thermostat and changing the filter. Here at Vanport Mechanical in Vancouver WA, we take our time and thoroughly check on the health of your heating system. You can increase efficiency and avoid serious breakdowns with an annual heater check-up.
Furnace Maintenance & Inspections
Inspection and furnace maintenance should happen once before cold weather sets in each year. It is better to head into the late fall and early winter months feeling confident that your heating source will keep you and your family warm. Estimates show that nearly 20 percent of all heater failures fall back on poor or non-existent maintenance.
Our technicians carefully check every component of your heating appliance to ensure there are no existing problems and look carefully for clues of potential future problems. Here is a list of items we check:
- Monitor for dust and dirt and clean
- Ensure there are no gas leaks
- Check for proper thermostat operation
- Check electrical connections and components to spot loose wiring or corrosion
- Test system voltage
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Check and clear condensate drain
- Check the “on” and “off” switch for smooth and accurate operation
