The benefits of preventive maintenance for your heating system are many, and a fall furnace tuneup will help ensure that the heat in your home will be working when you need it most in the depths of a mid-Ohio winter.
When you have your furnace inspected and maintained by a trained HVAC expert, you can count on:
- Improved reliability: A well-maintained furnace will work better and more reliably than a heating unit that is neglected. Your maintenance technician can spot potential trouble with the system before it occurs and fix or replace components that could fail when heating demands increase. A fall furnace tuneup reduces the possibility of a midwinter failure that will require emergency service or a full heating system replacement.
- Improved efficiency: A tuneup helps your furnace run at its highest level of efficiency, making the best use of the fuel or energy it consumes to generate heat. You'll save both energy and money since the system will use less fuel to produce the same amount of home heating. Utility bills will drop while your indoor comfort level stays the same.
- Improved comfort and safety: With a fall furnace tuneup, your heating system will be better able to produce heat without loss of energy or efficiency. Your living environment will stay comfortable and warm, your indoor air will be cleaner, and there will be less chance of an exhaust leak that could pose a danger to you and your family.
As part of the tuneup, you can expect your HVAC technician to:
- Lubricate motors, fans and moving parts.
- Clean the combustion chamber.
- Clean, adjust, and test burners.
- Test thermocouple.
- Adjust thermostat.
- Tighten and clean loose belts, components and electrical connections.
- Inspect and repair ignition system and safety controls.
- Inspect the heat exchanger for damage.
- Inspect and test flue and vents to ensure safe venting of carbon monoxide.
