An annual inspection of your residential heating system prepares it to run safely and efficiently all year long. Spring and summer are usually the best times of year to have your furnace or boiler inspected in order to prepare for the heating season.

One of our qualified technicians will check the major system components to ensure a quick and safe start-up when the time comes to turn it on. If, following your annual inspection, there’s a problem when you start your heating system in the fall, any additional labor is free provided that your boiler/furnace is deemed in good condition upon completion of the inspection.

Here is the checklist of services as part of your annual inspection (chimney and furnace/boiler cleaning are not included):

  • Carbon monoxide test
  • Check thermostat, heat anticipator and pilot
  • Check main burner and vent condition
  • Check chimney draw
  • Check pressuretrol and system pressure
  • Check ignition system
  • Flush low water cut-off
  • Inspect and lubricate blower motor, the assembly and circulator
  • Inspect belt, condensate pump, expansion tank, filter condition and relief valve
  • Test fan and limit control
