Inspect the Furnace

Before starting your commercial furnace, visually inspect it for any signs of damage, loose connections, or debris. Ensure that the area surrounding the furnace is clear of any flammable items, furniture, or other objects.

Check the Thermostat

Make sure the thermostat is set to “heat” mode and set to the desired temperature. Test the thermostat by raising the temperature a few degrees to ensure it is functioning correctly.

Turn on Power and Gas Supply

Ensure that the power supply to the furnace is turned on. If your furnace is operated by natural gas, check that the gas supply valve is open. If you smell gas or suspect a gas leak, immediately shut off the gas supply and contact a professional.

Change the Air Filters

Dirty air filters can restrict airflow and decrease the efficiency of your furnace. Start the heating season with clean air filters to ensure proper airflow and reduce the risk of system issues. Replace them as recommended by the manufacturer or if they appear dirty.

Schedule Professional Maintenance

It’s essential to have your commercial furnace serviced and inspected annually by a qualified professional. Routine maintenance can identify potential issues, improve energy efficiency, and extend the lifespan of your heating system. Call Climate Mechanics for a furnace tune-up today.
