The long list of tiny tasks for your heating inspection

While some DIY projects are exciting, inspecting your heating unit is easy but somewhat boring. The name of the game for furnace or heating unit inspection is observation. To get started, figure out how to turn off the power supply to the unit completely and make sure there is not a hard-wiring area that you may not be aware of without reading the user’s manual. After turning it off, see if you can turn it back on again and observe the furnace flame kicking on.

Once everything is turned off and unplugged again, the second step is to figure out which kind of filter your heating unit uses and use the user’s manual to replace it. While the unit is still turned off, the third step is to see if there is any debris that needs to be carefully removed with a vacuum nozzle. Finally, use the heating unit diagram in the user’s manual to look at each numbered part. If you notice any differences between your unit and the picture in the manual, it is time to give a pro Boise heating services specialist a call.
