What Is A Furnace?

The main goal of any type of furnace is to efficiently heat up space by circulating hot air. Furnaces, also known as boilers, function by blowing heated air through the air ducts of an HVAC system until your space has reached the desired indoor temperature.

Are Furnace Tune-Ups Necessary?

Heating and cooling systems require proper maintenance in order to function properly. Furnaces, an integral component of any HVAC system, also require yearly inspections and tune-ups to work efficiently. Furnace tune-ups should be a crucial part of any HVAC maintenance plan. Furnace tune-ups not only ensure your furnace remains in proper working condition but also help you avoid costly repairs such as frozen pipes and water damage. Having your furnace thoroughly inspected at least once a year will also help your furnace run efficiently, saving you money on your utility bills.

When Should I Service My Furnace?

It’s important to address small problems with your furnace before they become bigger, more expensive problems. If you begin to notice any of the following issues, it’s probably a good idea to schedule your furnace tune-up.

  • Higher utility bills than average
  • Dry or dusty air blowing through your home when the furnace is on
  • Inconsistent temperatures throughout rooms
  • Strange noises coming from your heating system
  • Substantial soot around the furnace
  • The pilot flame color has changed to yellow or orange
  • Bad smells coming from your furnace

What Happens During A Furnace Tune-Up?

During a furnace tune-up appointment, an HVAC technician will examine and test each component of your furnace to ensure it’s functioning properly. Some of the inspections and tests that will take place include inspecting your vents, testing your furnace’s wiring system, testing your heat exchanger, monitoring your flame sensor, checking your thermostat, and cleaning any build-up of dirt or debris from the furnace. A technician will perform a complete safety check to test carbon monoxide levels and verify there are no gas leaks present.

Best decision! They were so easy to work with, quick to respond, affordable, and super nice. The HVAC work they did on our basement finishing project looks great and was done so quickly. Will definitely be using them again for other home projects.
