Furnace Maintenance

Furnace Maintenance Services in Toms River, NJ

At BC Express, we’re just as committed to your safety, as we are your comfort. Regular furnace maintenance is the perfect example of where taking care of your heating and cooling system also means protecting you and your household from the more serious risks of fire, carbon monoxide, and other hazards. If you aren’t in the habit of servicing your furnace each year, please call our team. BC Express offers our services to homes across Ocean, Monmouth, Mercer, Middlesex, and Burlington counties.

Benefits of Preventative Maintenance

Most homeowners don’t realize that if their furnace system comes with a manufacturer warranty, it may require regular maintenance in order for the warranty to remain valid. If your heating system malfunctions and you haven’t had a professional check it recently, your warranty may be void and you’ll be forced to pay for the repairs out-of-pocket. That’s an expensive risk to take by putting off a quick periodic inspection by a licensed technician, so give us a call and we’ll help you schedule your first inspection and remind you when it’s time for a follow-up service visit.

Gas and Electric Furnaces

Both gas and electric furnaces use the same kind of duct system to distribute warm air throughout your home. A gas furnace relies on your thermostat to signal a need for heat, igniting a gas jet in a combustion chamber to warm up air that passes through.

An electric furnace doesn’t need a combustion chamber. Instead, electric coils heat up before air is passed over the coils and into the air ducts. In addition to being safer, electric furnaces are usually a bit less expensive to install and slightly smaller than gas counterparts. However, these furnaces are usually more expensive to operate and may not perform as well as the even, efficient heating from a gas furnace.

What to Expect During a Furnace Maintenance Visit

If your home runs on gas heating, regular maintenance is important from a safety perspective as well as for efficiency and function. Our team is qualified to inspect the system, including these steps:

  • Check the unit for gas leaks or carbon monoxide.
  • Replace the filters or clean washable lifetime filters.
  • Inspect the gas valve safety seal and adjust the flame.
  • Measure the amp draws and voltage compared to manufacturer safety specifications.
  • Inspect the flu piping for restrictions and air leaks.
  • Check the safety switches and fan controls.
  • Clean the furnace and/or air handler to remove flammable particles.

Don’t Forget the Ducts!

Many homeowners forget about cleaning air ducts and subsequently may not pay attention to the indoor air quality inside their houses. In fact, not only should you hire a professional to service your heating and cooling systems, but also take good care of the air ducts running behind the walls.
