  • Inspect exhaust venting for gas leakage, flue gas can contain high levels of CO and can be very corrosive

  • Check Ignition & Burner Sequence for proper operation .  

  • Check any Natural Gas odors in around the manifold and valve train.

  • Check for proper air flow through the heat exchanger.  Air Flow is critical to efficient energy use.  

  • Check Combustion Air intake.  Gas Burners need 10X more air then gas for proper operation.  

  • High Efficiency Gas Furnaces require regular combustion analysis as these can produce very high levels of CO is mixture is too lean.  

  • Additional steps depending on the type of furnace and application.  

Gas Hot Water Boiler

  • Inspect exhaust venting for gas leakage, flue gas can contain high levels of CO and can be very corrosive

  • Check Ignition & Burner Sequence for proper operation .  

  • Check any Natural Gas odors in around the manifold and valve train.

  • Check Circulation Pump Operation 

  • Check Automatic Valve Operations - Two Way & Three way Valves positioning.

  • Check Water Flow through the boiler.   Water flow is critical to efficient energy use and the boiler life

  • Temperature Control of boiler & heating circuits. 

  • There are several System Type and additional steps depend on the application

Heat Pump  - Air Source  

  • Replace air filters regularly , 2-4 times per year depending on use

  • Inspect Outdoor unit location and condition

  • Inspect drainage around the outdoor unit

  • Clean Condensate Traps 

  • Test operational sequence of defrost system

  • Check Back up heating system if any.

  • Inspect electrical components Electrical Heaters and Compressor

  • Additional testing depending on type of system.  Single Coil, Multi Coil or Central Heat Pumps.
