Servicing Your Furnace

I recently had an issue with my furnace so I thought it was a perfect time to share some maintenance procedures that are universal regardless of the type of furnace you have:

1. Check the draft hood for discoloration, soot, dust.

2. Check the flue for deterioration, white marks, rust.

3. Check the chimney for blockage, broken mortar, crumbling bricks.

4. Keep the furnace motor oiled. Check the belt — it's easy to replace.

And, here are some safety concerns:

Never store things near a heater.

A pilot with a yellow flame may require adjustment by a contractor.

Call a professional for help if you experience carbon monoxide poisoning (a headache, chest tightness, burning eyes, weakness, vomiting, dizziness, loss of muscular control).

And, give me a call - 917-576-6844 - when you are ready to talk about buying a home or selling your home!
