Steps to Take When Checking Furnace Ducts for Blockage
Restricted airflow can cause cold spots in your Fort Collins home, making your furnace ineffective. If you’re experiencing restricted airflow, check your furnace ducts for blockage. There are many reasons why your furnace may not be functioning properly, so to keep your home comfortable, make sure to schedule an inspection of your heating system.
General Inspection of Ductwork
To inspect your furnace ducts for blockage, check your air filter first and make sure that it’s clean. Then, check to see if the blower fan is running. Go into all of your rooms and make sure they’re getting warm. If your furnace duct connects to your chimney flue, make sure to check the flue for blockage. If it’s blocked, you can call a professional for help.
Ductwork blockages can’t be seen, so checking your furnace ducts for blockages will require a professional. Someone will need to inspect your ductwork to determine where and what’s causing the blockage and lack of airflow. Having your ducts cleaned periodically can help prevent blockages and lower the level of indoor pollution in your home.
Many homeowners are able to do many of these simple maintenance tasks themselves, but when they run into a problem, calling an HVAC professional will be necessary for the safety and comfort of you and your family.
