Get the Advice and Services You Need from Our HVAC Experts 

Scheduling a furnace tune-up isn’t commonly on every homeowner’s Honey-Do list, but as we approach the cold weather season, now is the perfect time to ensure your furnace is ready to provide you with maximum comfort all winter long. One of the leading ways to reduce mid-winter furnace breakdowns and make sure your system continues to run as efficiently as possible, is with annually scheduled furnace tune-ups. A furnace is like any other piece of mechanical equipment, where its working life can be extended with preventative maintenance. 

Even if your system appears to be in good working order, take the time to schedule your furnace tune-up with the experts from Comfort Solutions HVAC. We can help you save time, money and energy with our heating repair and preventative maintenance services.    

What to Expect from a Furnace Tune-Up Appointment 

Now that you’re familiar with why annual furnace maintenance is important, it’s time to learn about what you can expect during a professional furnace tune-up. Generally, the purpose of a furnace tune-up is to ensure your heating system is working at optimal efficiency and there are no other safety concerns associated with the equipment. During the appointment, a professional HVAC technician will do the following: 

  • Inspection: A furnace is made-up of several components. During a tune-up, your technician will inspect these components to ensure they are working properly. Some of the parts that may be checked are the gas valve operation, ignitor, control board, fan and more.  
  • Safety Check: In addition to checking the regular components of your furnace, a professional technician will also spend time examining the parts of your equipment that could pose a safety hazard. For instance, the heat exchanger will be inspected to ensure there are no cracks which could result in a carbon monoxide leak. Other parts that are checked should include the air filter and combustion chamber. A CO reading may also be performed and if the number that is registered is too high, the furnace will be shut off and a replacement may be necessary.  
  • Clean and Tune: To make sure your furnace is at peak performance and running as efficiently as possible, a furnace tune-up will include a thorough cleaning and test firing. A proper working furnace can help you save precious resources and keep your system’s warranty in force.
