Preventative Maintenance To Keep Your Multi-Fuel Furnace Running Smoothly
In order to ensure that your Yukon Eagle Klondike multi-fuel furnace will work at top efficiency during the next winter, there are some simple maintenance steps that you can take. Using care and focusing on safety, be sure that all electrical power to the furnace has been turned off and that the furnace has cooled to safe temperatures.
Step One: Have a professional inspect the furnace.
Before the weather has turned cold and before you need to use the furnace to heat your home, hire a professional to come and service your furnace. This will give the technician a chance to inspect the furnace for any parts that need repair and will save you from facing cold days without heat. This servicing may also improve the efficiency of the furnace.
Step Two: Perform routine cleanings on your furnace.
As you are preparing for the coming winter, and when you call the technician, you should also take the chance to clean the multi-fuel furnace, the smoke pipe, and the chimney. You might also find that it is beneficial to clean these at the end of the winter after you have stopped using the furnace.
Step Three: Clean the air filter every month.
The efficiency of the Yukon Eagle Klondike wood furnace will be impacted by the amount of air that passes through the furnace. Keeping the air filter clean can go a long way towards maintaining the desired efficiency. In addition to the monthly cleaning, try to change the air filter at least twice during the year.
Step Four: Inspect the blower motor.
The blower motor on the Yukon Eagle is very powerful. It may be one third to three fourths horsepower and will circulate between 800 and 1800 cubic feet of air per minute. To maintain the highest efficiency, check the belt regularly for the proper tension.
Step Five: Keep the grates clean and emptied.
If you allow the ash draw to fill, the grates could become warped. With a little bit of preventative cleaning, you can prolong the lifespan of the drawer and the grates.
You can keep your Yukon Eagle Klondike multi-fuel furnace running great when you take a little bit of time and effort to provide routine maintenance.
