While it may seem that winter is far from over, it's time to start thinking about spring. Like most Vancouverites, it's likely your furnace has done double-duty to deal with the snow and unusually prolonged cold snaps. No matter what the system, the constant usage will result in wear and tear on different parts. And like any machine, the more it's used, the faster it will wear out.
Maintaining optimal performance typically means at least one yearly tune-up, ideally in the spring or fall to make sure the system is primed for winter. In the spring, there are three areas that require focus: the condensing unit, the filter, and the internal components.
- Condensing Unit
A clean unit runs more efficiently. It's likely that after the winter there will be grime, small branches, and all kinds of gunk trapped in the condensing unit or heat pump. Use a pressure washer to loosen up and remove the debris that has gotten caught.
- Furnace Filter
The filter should be changed every 3-4 months, particularly if people with allergies are living in the home. Check the filter. If it's dirty or the colour has changed or darkened, it's best to replace it.
- Internal Parts
If the unit was inspected in the fall, this probably won't be necessary in the spring. However, if no maintenance has been provided then it's best to call in a professional who can check if any parts are damaged or worn.
Adopting a proactive approach to furnace maintenance will help keep the system operating efficiently and affordably. More importantly, if something does go wrong, you won't be left in the cold waiting for components to arrive.
