A furnace tune-up typically involves checking the air filter, thermostat, air vents, pilots and gas pressure. A licensed HVAC specialist will check to make sure the furnace switch is operating properly, the furnace is receiving enough power to function, the drain lines are not being clogged and the exterior vents are not being blocked.
4 Eco Services General Manager Ian Williams says, “Some manufacturers require annual furnace tune-ups to keep the warranty valid. We urge homeowners to schedule an appointment and get their furnace checked out to prevent any serious issues from coming up in the middle of winter.”
The benefits of an annual furnace tune-up include greater efficiency, cleaner indoor air and prevention of costly damage by identifying issues before they become more serious. Overall, a furnace tune-up can help extend the life of the HVAC system and reduce energy costs. With regular maintenance, an HVAC system can typically last eight to 18 years before it needs to be replaced.
