- The vent systems will be examined for leaking and blockages that could be potentially dangerous.
- Your filters will be examined. You should be replacing your furnace filters on a regular basis, usually every three months. The service technician will be able to tell you if this is often enough, and how clean the filter looks.
- The fresh air intake grills will be checked to make sure nothing is blocking them.
- The unit will be inspected for rust or any other signs of deterioration.
