What exactly is done during a heating system tune-up? Is cleaning the furnace included with the tune-up?

As the cold season arrives we’ll want to stay warm and comfortable while inside this winter. Many will be diligent and call M.E. Flow to schedule a heating tune-up and wonder what exactly is included with this tune-up?

First congratulations for being diligent and calling to have your heating tune-up performed! Here is what the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) service technician is going to do.

The technician will inspect the furnace for any operational problems and perform several maintenance tasks that will help avoid future breakdowns. These tasks will improve the efficiency of your HVAC system and keep your system operating safely. This service typically can take from sixty to ninety minutes per system.

Here are the benefits of having your furnace inspected yearly:

  • Extends the life of your HVAC system which will prolong the need to replace your furnace!
  • Saves money on your energy bills because your system will be operating at peak efficiency.
  • Keeps the manufacturer’s warranty valid— as they do require proof of maintenance when submitting a claim.
  • Avoids major repair bills or complete breakdowns— because the inspection can identify problems before they become BIGGER repair problems.
  • Provides peace of mind knowing your system is safely operating, preventing the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning! In the winter months this is so important!

If the HVAC technician sees a component of your HVAC system that needs cleaning,  the pricing for that service will be given to you. Many of our clients who maintain their systems with  service maintenance agreements for their systems don’t require much cleaning because they stay current on their maintenance and change their filters regularly. The accumulation of dirt from lack of maintenance is the #1 reason for repair calls.
