What Happens During a Furnace Tune-Up?
Regular maintenance, including furnace tune-up inspections, are essential for your home systems to continue operating safely and efficiently. Having your furnace serviced before winter will ensure you experience consistent, optimal comfort throughout the season.
Why is a furnace tune-up so important?
Technicians often equate getting a system tune-up to getting the oil changed in your car. Your furnace is a mechanical system with many moving parts that need to be cleaned and adjusted in order to keep running smoothly. If you skip your oil change, eventually your car will break down. The same goes for your furnace.
Bonfe recommends two annual inspections of your HVAC systems: one in the fall to tune up your heating system, and one in the spring to assess your air conditioning system.
Now’s the time to schedule your fall furnace tune-up. Bonfe offers fall furnace tune-ups for just $89.
What happens during a furnace tune-up?
During a tune-up, a technician will clean and adjust the parts and mechanisms inside your furnace. This will keep the furnace running efficiently throughout the season. Your tech will also perform a comprehensive inspection to catch potential problems before they escalate into a full-scale furnace breakdown.
