Common Heating and Furnace Issues

Most houses in Chatham-Kent are heated by gas furnaces or boilers. During an inspection, the furnace will likely be run to make sure it cycles properly. Also, the filter and heat exchanger of the furnace should be inspected. The size and age of the furnace may be determined, if possible. The ductwork should be inspected, and every room should be checked for a heat source.

Did you know that most boilers require an annual inspection by a licensed natural gas technician (TSSA certified)?

Chimneys should be inspected for safety and compliance, as well as natural gas lines. If a house has baseboard electrical heaters, they need to be checked to ensure that they function.
