The falling of leaves, football games and brisk mornings all mean one thing for Midwesterners – the inevitable Iowa winter is just around the corner. The good news is, you can stay warm and cozy all winter long. Just be sure your furnace is up for the challenge. At Wyckoff Heating & Cooling, we provide routine service and maintenance checks to ensure your furnace safely serves your needs especially through the coldest days of the year.

Let’s take a look at what you can expect during a Wyckoff service check:

Prior to the visit, our service technician provides a courtesy call, approximately an hour before the inspection, to ensure your schedule is open.

Upon arrival, the technician records all equipment information so that future maintenance can be prepared for in a timely, accurate fashion. The technician then follows a thorough service checklist to ensure all aspects of your furnace are functioning at maximum efficiency. This checklist includes examination of the pressure switch, furnace burners and gas levels, temperature of incoming and outgoing air, cleanliness and more.

The aspect of the service check our Wyckoff technician takes most seriously is the operating safety of your furnace. Our technician checks for carbon monoxide around the unit and in the ductwork itself by doing a visual inspection as well as an electronic reading of the heat exchanger. Your family’s safety is our number one priority at Wyckoff, and we hold this commitment with the utmost regard.

In addition to the furnace inspection, the technician reviews your humidifier for proper operation, ensuring the pad is in place and sufficient moisture is produced. Upstairs, the technician verifies no carbon monoxide is present in the air distribution and lastly, inspects operation of your system’s thermostat.

One the service check is complete, our service technician reviews all elements of the inspection with the customer, providing an overview of the service check and tune-up along with a detailed report of items to keep on your radar. The final step of our service inspection is to record the data for retention in our database.

Thorough, brief and effective, a Wyckoff service check is a great way to ensure your furnace will get you and your family through the harsh Iowa winter ahead. Why wait until your furnace breaks to have it inspected? Take a proactive approach this fall and let Wyckoff help you.
