Detailed Furnace Inspections in Pittsburgh, PA
When your furnace is due for an inspection or in need of a repair, it is incredibly important for your heating technician to know exactly what is going on with your system. The heat exchanger is one of the most vital components of a furnace, which means it must be examined during an inspection. In order to examine the heat exchanger, our professional furnace repair technicians use industry-leading Infared Camera technology. Our Infared Camera gets snaked into the furnace and records high-resolution images.
This allows your technician to identify any existing problems such as:
- Other deterioration
Performing these inspections prior to winter can help to prevent potentially dangerous situations, such as a gas leak, from taking place in your home. Your technician can identify and take care of minor repairs before they cause serious problems.

Furnace Maintenance & Repairs in Pittsburgh
A well-maintained furnace provides security and efficiency. Did you know that your furnace should be inspected and serviced at least once a year? Just like any other major appliance or piece of equipment, your furnace needs to be checked and cleaned to make sure that it works at full capacity. After being turned off for months at a time, your system may be in need of repairs or tune-ups.
Upon inspecting your system, we can make any necessary repairs to:
- Heat exchangers
- Pilot lights
- Duct work
By scheduling regular furnace maintenance appointments with Gillece Services, our technicians are able to ensure the safe and proper operation of your furnace, helping you to get through the Pittsburgh winter season comfortably.
Why Schedule Furnace Maintenance in the Fall?
The beginning of autumn is ideal for preparing your furnace for cold winter weather. Sooner or later a particularly chilly night could have you heading to the thermostat and switching to heat mode. The last thing anyone wants is to turn on their furnace for the first time and run into problems.
Gillece is here to help you with all of your home heating needs, including annual furnace start-up inspections and maintenance for the following areas in your home's heating system.
Removal of Debris Buildup
Throughout your unit, dirt and debris buildup can block major components and cause your furnace to work harder than it should. In some cases it might not work at all. When a system doesn’t produce warm air or seems to be operating poorly, the problem is often due to excess dirt. The same is true for the air filter which should be replaced once every couple of months or as it becomes filled. Gillece HVAC technicians will carefully inspect your furnace and perform proper cleanings as needed.
Furnace Check with Infrared Camera
Gillece Services’ furnace start-up inspection includes an industry-leading, high-definition infrared camera to look for defects within the heat exchanger. Cracks and holes within the heat exchanger, which keeps fuels separate from the air in your home, can lead to highly dangerous gas leaks. Annual furnace maintenance helps to prevent such leaks and other major problems from popping up in the middle of winter.
Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarms
Another important part of fall furnace maintenance is checking smoke and CO alarms and making sure they are working properly. You should have both kinds of alarms on each floor of your home. Your Gillece furnace technician can help test alarms or install them if you don’t already have them.
Fall furnace maintenance is one way to prepare for winter and to ensure a safe and comfortable home throughout the season. Furnace inspections help to improve heating efficiency and indoor air quality and to prevent system breakdown.
