The Stakes Are High—Why Your Furnace Tune-Up Can’t Wait

Would you risk a long drive without checking your car’s oil? Probably not. Like your car, your furnace also needs regular love and care to keep your home cozy and safe. Forego that annual check, and you might void any manufacturer warranties. But that’s the tip of the iceberg.

An unmaintained furnace can do more than just break down; it can hike up your energy bills, pose safety risks, and cut short its lifespan. Timing is everything. Autumn in Utah offers that perfect window to get your furnace in top shape before winter sets in.

What’s on the Checklist? The Anatomy of a Quality Furnace Tune-Up

You’re a smart homeowner. You know that not all tune-ups are equal. Some contractors might quickly dust your furnace and call it a day. But a quality tune-up dives much deeper. Here’s what you should demand:

  • Carbon Monoxide Test: Your family’s safety is non-negotiable.
  • Gas Leak Inspection: Because you can’t afford to play with fire.
  • Intake and Exhaust Check: Ensuring nothing blocks your furnace’s breath.
  • Thermostat Calibration: For accurate, energy-saving temperature control.
  • Gas Pressure Adjustment: To keep your furnace running efficiently.
  • Safety Control Testing: Your furnace’s “seat belts and airbags.”
  • Electrical Connection Inspection: No faulty wiring on our watch.
  • Combustion Analysis: Because a clean burn is an efficient burn (most contractors do not include this).
