Is a Furnace Tune-Up This Winter That Necessary?

February 14, 2022 | Blog

It’s easy to forget or skip heater tune-ups when your schedule is packed, leaving your furnace uncared for until the chilly winter months. But why is this a problem? What’s the point of a tune-up if there aren’t any noticeable problems with your heating unit?

While it’s great that nothing is wrong, the goal is to keep it that way — and that typically isn’t possible without preventative maintenance. In the long run, furnace tune-ups help you save money, stay warm and keep your family safe throughout the winter.

Schedule a maintenance appointment with Heblon Heating & Air Conditioning today to start enjoying the following advantages:

Benefits of Heater Tune-Ups

Improved Furnace Performance

Furnace tune-ups involve more than simply identifying issues. An HVAC professional will deep clean and check the gas calibration of your device, ensuring that it is running as smoothly as possible.

Regular heater maintenance will also extend your system’s lifespan, as small issues can be spotted and resolved before they cause permanent damage.

Saving Energy (and Money)

Some sources have found that a well-maintained heater can save you up to 30% on utility bills.

During a tune-up, the technician will clean your filters and optimize your burner, helping your home reach your desired temperature quicker. This translates into less energy expended and, ultimately, less money out of your pocket.

Eliminating Airborne Allergens

A basic cleaning and filter replacement can make a world of a difference for your respiratory system.

Infuriating symptoms like a runny nose, itchy eyes or persistent cough are often related to a polluted airflow. An ill-maintained furnace will continuously pump dust, dander and other contaminants through your vents, exacerbating allergy issues.

Preserving Your Warranty

Many HVAC companies require evidence of preventative maintenance to cash in on warranties. If you ever need to repair or replace your device, representatives will likely ask for a record of past tune-ups.

Prove you’ve done your due diligence in caring for your furnace by investing in regular maintenance appointments.

Protecting Your Family

Finally, perhaps the most important benefit of heater tune-ups is enhanced safety. Though heaters are integral to daily life, they can pose serious threats if improperly managed.

Namely, broken furnaces can cause natural gas and carbon monoxide leaks, which can be lethal if undetected.

Though this sounds frightening, there’s no reason to live in fear. During a tune-up, an HVAC professional can spot any safety threats like a cracked heat exchanger, preventing potential tragedies.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Highly Recommend Using Heblon

My AC wouldn’t turn on so I called Heblon . It was a Sunday and from calling the office to the engineer arriving took about 45 minutes. The engineer was professional and gave me excellent feedback on the issue. Repaired within 45 minutes and couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommend using Heblon, and will definitely be using them from now on.
