Time for You Annual Heater Tune-Up!

Monday, November 18, 2013 @ 09:11 PM

Now that the fall season is well underway, the chill in the air reminds many homeowners that it’s time for their annual furnace maintenance appointment. If possible, you should have your home heating system tune-up before the colder winter weather is here to stay. This ensures that your HVAC equipment is up to the task of keeping you and your family warm in the months ahead. You can achieve maximum energy efficiency for your home or business by scheduling a preventative maintenance appointment every autumn.

Your Furnace or Boiler Needs a Comprehensive Tune-up

While it is important to change the air filter and keep the area around your furnace clean, these actions alone aren’t enough to improve efficiency. That requires professional preventative maintenance from Air Repair, Inc. Our home heating system tune-ups include all of the following:

  • Calibration of your thermostat
  • Cleaning of furnace ignition and burner assemblies, condensate drains and air filters
  • Testing furnace starting capabilities and safety controls
  • Checking combustion air and gas piping
  • Monitoring flue levels
  • Checking for damage and corrosion on the heat exchanger
  • Ensuring correct air flow
  • Measuring volts and amps and making sure all electrical wiring is tight
  • Lubricating all moving parts
  • Ensuring correct air flow and gas pressure

At the start of each preventative maintenance appointment, we check the carbon monoxide level of your furnace to make sure there are no safety issues. We encourage you to bring any concerns to our attention at the start of the appointment.

Why Preventative Maintenance is Important

Even though your heating system will have to be replaced eventually, you can add several years to its lifespan with annual preventative maintenance. When your furnace is operating efficiently, it improves comfort and decreases operating costs. This means that your heating bills will be lower, your family will be healthier and you won’t need to schedule repairs so often. Furnace tune-ups are a great way for our technicians to detect problems that could develop into expensive repairs later.

A common problem with furnaces that don’t receive routine maintenance is uneven distribution of heat throughout the home. When this happens, you aren’t as comfortable as you should be. Dirty furnaces also emit dust through air vents, which can be problematic for people with respiratory issues. Fortunately, these problems can be avoided with annual tune-ups. No matter what type of appointment you need to schedule, we encourage you to check our specials page for money-saving coupons first.
