Furnace Tune-Ups and Air Conditioner Tune-Ups by H & H
Is it time for a furnace tune-up? Ensure the performance of your system with regular maintenance from our home heating professionals. HVAC regular maintenance enhances home safety, reduces energy use, increases system life, and helps guard against unexpected breakdowns, keeping your family warm and your energy bills in check.
An HVAC Tune-Up Will Keep Your System Running Strong All Season Long
Furnace maintenance is often overlooked by homeowners, who assume their system is running fine. But your system experiences wear and tear with daily use, particularly in weather extremes. Poorly maintained systems suffer more repair needs and a shorter lifespan than properly maintained systems, making a gas furnace tune-up essential to ensuring your system will perform reliably even through the coldest weather.
A winter furnace tune-up includes these essential tasks, many of which cannot be safely performed by homeowners:
- A comprehensive inspection of all system components, including:
- Lubricating mechanical parts
- Inspecting electrical connections and verifying voltage and current
- Checking the condition of belts and fans
- Verifying refrigerant levels (heat pumps)
- Cleaning drainage system components
- Crucial safety inspections, including:
- Ensuring proper gas pressure
- Checking the pilot light and ignition system
- Cleaning burners
- Inspecting the heat exchanger for faults
- Looking for exhaust leaks
- Testing carbon monoxide levels
- A thermostat check to ensure the “brain” of your system is performing correctly.
- Check the air filter – the most common reason for system breakdowns.
Here Are Some Commonly Asked Questions About HVAC Tune Ups and Air Conditioner Tune Ups
1. What Is Included In An HVAC Tune-Up?
HVAC tune-ups are planned maintenance for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. A tune-up involves a comprehensive cleaning of condenser coils, and an evaluation of the refrigerant level to ensure peak operating performance. The tune-up checklist also includes lubrication of all moving parts, changing of air filters and thermostat testing and settings review. These are just a few of the standard checks that should be carried out by a qualified HVAC technician.
2. Is HVAC Tune-Up Worth It?
Yes, yes, yes – an HVAC tune-up is definitely worth the cost. It pays to fix issues when they’re minor rather than waiting for full system breakdowns. A well-maintained HVAC unit lasts longer. Besides minimizing unexpected breakdowns, regular tune-ups help your unit recover loss efficiency, resulting in energy savings and reduced operating expenses. HVAC tune-ups and furnace tune-ups also help to uncover any underlying issues that may impact the functioning and overall lifespan of your system.
3. How Often Should You Get an HVAC Tune-Up?
HVAC tune-ups consist of an inspection and maintenance service that should take place at least once a year, regardless of the type of HVAC unit you have. However, it’s a good idea to have your system inspected twice a year, once in spring and once in fall, to ensure proper functioning in the summer and winter months.
4. Is HVAC Tune-Up The Same As Maintenance?
No, it’s important to remember that a seasonal HVAC tune-up differs significantly from preventative maintenance. An HVAC tune-up is performed by a professional, while preventative maintenance is something you can do yourself to enhance the longevity of your system. There are various tasks that you’ll need to perform for your HVAC preventative maintenance at least every three to four months, depending on the usage of your system. Preventative maintenance generally includes checking for oil leaks, changing air filters, inspecting the thermostat, and testing safety controls.
5. Do You Offer Any Pre-Season Discounts?
Seasonal tune-ups enable your HVAC system to operate at maximum effectiveness, but the cost can be a deterrent for some homeowners. That’s why we offer several timely discount coupons to help you save some cash. We also offer flexible payment options and guarantee high-quality service every time.
