Benefits of a Furnace Tune-Up

Posted On:

With autumn in full swing and the cold weather quickly approaching in Maryland and Washington, D.C. it’s the perfect time to schedule an annual furnace tune-up!

What to Expect During Your Furnace Tune-Up

During a furnace tune-up, you can expect the HVAC technician to check all parts of your furnace and heating system including:

  • Filters
  • Ventilation
  • Safety Controls
  • Thermostats
  • Fan belts and blowers
  • Pilot lights
  • Burners
  • Motors

With thorough inspection and testing, your furnace and heating system are sure to last through the bitter cold winter months.

Furnace Service Call Saves You Money

Even though you will have to pay for a furnace tune-up, you will end up saving money in the long run.  During a furnace tune-up service, the HVAC technician can inspect and change filters, making sure your system does not have to work extra hard to produce heat.  By making sure that your system is running easily, you will prolong the life-span of your furnace and save on your utility bills.

In addition to saving on utility bills, by checking each part of your heating system, the HVAC technician may be able to make small repairs that could turn into much larger, expensive replacements down the road. Buying a new furnace is a very large financial investment, so it is more budget friendly to maintain the system you already have.

Health Risks from Furnaces

In addition to saving you money, having an annual furnace service appointment can ensure that your heating system is not posing a health or safety risk to you or your family.  This includes making sure that there are no flammable items placed around your furnace, and checking for carbon monoxide leaks in your system.

At the end of the furnace tune-up and heating inspection, you will feel confident that your heating system is operating to its fullest and best ability.
