Heater Maintenance


Homeowners can do the following things to maintain their heaters:

  1. Inspect thermostat for proper operation.

  2. Inspect filter, and change or clean as needed.

  3. Check all electrical components and controls.

  4. Oil motors as needed.

  5. Inspect heat exchanger for possible cracks. A crack in the heat exchanger will introduce carbon monoxide into the living space.

  6. Check air flow. If diminished, it may be necessary to clean the evaporator coil.

  7. Check air fuel mixture, where appropriate.
