Hot air furnaces are used primarily to heat, but can be used with refrigerant
coils to cool or as a backup for heat pump applications using multi-speed fan
motors.  The furnace is equipped with a gas/oil burner that is serviced by using
PM Inspections BURNERSG-A/BURNERO-A. The housing contains the burner, heat
exchanger, circulating fan, fan motor, controls and safeties.  If equipped with a
humidifier, it is serviced using PM Inspection HUMDSYS-A.  These units can be
horizontal or vertical, heating only or heating/cooling.  Cooling would be
provided by utilizing a refrigeration condensing unit, with a refrigerant coil
located in the furnace plenum.

Special Instructions:

1.  Review manufacturer's instructions.
2.  Schedule shutdown with building personnel.
3.  Coordinate other related preventive maintenance items, such as, burners
    (BURNERSG-A/BURNERO-A), fuel tank (TNKFUELOIL-4Y), humidifier (HUMDSYS-A),
3.  Shut off fuel and power; tag and lock out all circuits.

Items to Check & Initial Completion:

1. ___ Remove furnace ends and access panels if applicable.
2. ___ Check the fire box liner or refractory for cracks and leaks.
3. ___ Check smoke stack for obstructions, leaks, etc.
4. ___ Clean bottom of smoke stack (breaching).
5. ___ Clean all fans and motors.
6. ___ Check operation of controls and safeties.
7. ___ Lubricate as required.
8. ___ Check and clean plenum (clean cooling coils and check for leaks, if
9. ___ Replace furnace and access panels ends if removed.
10.___ Check all motors, belts, pulleys, shafts, etc. for alignment.
11.___ Treat all rusted areas with rust inhibitor and touch up paint.
12.___ Remove lock outs and tags.  Restore fuel and power supply.
