Furnace Repair & Maintenance
Have you noticed your furnace is not working as well as it used to? Call McAtee LLC, your furnace repair specialists now to have your furnace properly maintained and repaired before the cold season begins!
A well-maintained furnace can save you energy cost, increase the lifespan of your unit, assure you that it is running safely and quietly and provide your family with comfort throughout the year. Seasonal maintenance is essential and can be done by the homeowner or one of our professional service technicians.
At least once a year, you should totally shut down your furnace and vacuum out the base, gas burners and the nooks and crannies of any loose dust and debris. The fan-belt should be inspected for wear and tear. The belt tension should be taut. An over loose fan-belt should be corrected immediately.
Older types of units may need bearings and shafts oiled to keep them running properly.
The furnace filter is essential to filter out dust and pollen. It should be checked and cleaned monthly. It should be replaced; depending on the type of unit; every third month.
Over time as your furnace ages or has gone through several repairs to work correctly the efficiency of your furnace will lower. The term used to measure furnace output is called the AFUE rating (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency), the higher the AFUE rating the more efficient the furnace. Homes today are required to have at least 78% AFUE rating, which is the minimum allowed for new units.
The standard/mid-efficiency level is 80% to 83% AFUE rating and a high-efficiency level is 90% to 98% AFUE rating.
