What should you expect when you get a professional furnace tune up?
In Orem and Provo the leaves are changing colors, the harvest is here, and the crisp smell of autumn is in the air! You know what that means… it’s time to start thinking about getting your furnace tuned up! But do you really need a furnace tune up?
Would you drive your car without ever getting the oil changed? Much like your car, a furnace is a well-oiled machine that will run properly and more efficient when correctly maintained. Manufacturers recommend having a tune up each year. In fact, if regular maintenance is not performed on new equipment most manufacturers will not warranty parts or faulty equipment. It is so beneficial to the home-owner to have this done annually to guarantee fewer break downs, save money on utility bills, and prolong the life of your furnace.
As a home owner, you have many choices when it comes to furnace tune ups. There are some contractors or companies that will come dust off your furnace and give it a quick look over… maybe even change the filter. But as an intelligent homeowner, you are going to want to make sure that your furnace receives a professional, precision tune up.
Here are a few of the most important things that a technician should do during a professional tune up: clean the flame sensor, inspect the heat exchanger, adjust the gas pressure, test the safety controls, inspect the electrical connections, check for combustion air, test for carbon monoxide, pull and clean the burners, pull and clean the blower wheel, check for gas leaks, check the capacitor, check the blower motor, calibrate the thermostat, and of course… change the filter!
