For those people who live in area's of the country that gets cold, it's time to think about your heating equipment. With the technology, new furnaces have today there isn't much to do on them as far as setting them up for winter. In the old days (10 years ago and before) we were told to have our furnaces and boilers checked once a year. But now furnaces and boilers have electronics doing most of the work. There are only a couple of things that a service tech needs to do in today's furnaces and boilers as far as a "clean and check" goes. The old days: In the old days when a service man (politically correct term today is "service tech" this term started about 21 years ago) when out on a "clean and check," he had all kinds of things to do. First, he pulled out all the burners and blew them out with co2, then he checked the heat exchanger for cracks using a mirror, then vacuumed up any dirt he found. He also changed the "thermocouple" (on a standing pilot, where the pilot flame burns all the time, the thermocouple tells the gas valve there is a pilot light, and it's OK to open and start the heat sequence) on the "pilot light" and blew out the pilot light assembly to make sure it would burn clean and that the pilot flame was positioned correctly on the thermocouple, and on the burner pilot runner. So how often do we want our furnaces and boilers checked? That's a tough question. It all depends on the environment your furnace is running in. If your furnace or boiler is running in an environment that has a lot of dust or animal hair, then it might be worth it to have your furnace checked once a year. If your furnace is running in a relatively clean environment, you can probably get away with 2 or 3 years of not having to have to spend the money to have a clean furnace checked. Don't forget that these new furnaces shut down when they spot the slightest problem. Some tech guys feel the only real time for homeowners to have their furnaces ( don't forget we're talking new furnaces, not the old clunkers) checked, is when they don't start. They don't think the cost justifies what your getting in return. But in the end, it's the choice of the homeowner to decide how often they have their heating equipment checked.
