Your furnace is a complex system of controls and machinery that needs professional skill and industry experience to evaluate. Whether it runs on propane or gas, your system needs special equipment to monitor its combustion gases. It also has to be checked for air leaks, gas leaks, rust and condensation. Of course, not all HVAC companies offer complete tune-up procedures, so it’s best to rely on trusted heating and air conditioning service companies like Bartlett who can check yours thoroughly and efficiently.
If you’re wondering why you should get a furnace tune-up, here we explain what you can expect from our services:
What Happens During a Furnace Tune-Up
There are actually many technical steps involved in one of our professional furnace tune-ups, but one of the most important things we do is inspect your filter and check for carbon monoxide leaks. It’s recommended that you change your filter at least once a month because of how much dirt it catches. Otherwise, the dirt will start to collect on your furnace and eventually it won’t move warm air into your home like you should, making it very inefficient. Meanwhile, we check for carbon monoxide leaks, because if there is one it could be deadly. It can also get into your home when your furnace’s flame isn’t adjusted correctly.
Our heating and air conditioning repair technician will also clean and adjust the parts and mechanisms inside your furnace during the tune-up. This will keep it running efficiently throughout the season. To prevent your furnace from having a full-scale furnace breakdown, a comprehensive inspection will also be conducted to catch potential problems.
Why You Should Schedule a Furnace Tune-Up
Along with the benefit of keeping the warranty on your HVAC system in force, performing a tune-up also ensures the system will last at least as long as its expected lifespan. Neglected tune-ups are a common reason for premature failure of HVAC equipment. Tuning your furnace is also important if you want it to run more efficiently. With a properly-maintained system, your energy savings can reach as high as 30 percent.
