Charleston Furnace Tune Up


You’ve probably heard the phrase, “It’s tune up time,” at some point recently. Of course, you’re probably more focused on the phrases, “play ball,” at this point in the year. While no one wants to rush baseball season, it is time to think about getting your annual furnace tune up because you don’t want to be left with a broken heater this winter.

There are some tasks you can do at home before you call the experts here at LimRic to perform a thorough maintenance:

  • Clean it. Dirt is a furnace’s biggest enemy. If it gets into the system, it can cause it to waste fuel and overheat.
  • Check the pilot light to make sure that it’s on and if it’s not try relighting it.
  • Check that the flue has a clear vent path to the outdoors with no gaps or dents.
