A properly maintained furnace is a reliable furnace that will keep you warm when you need it to. There are also other benefits to having your furnace tuned up and serviced regularly. And while there’s no bad time to have your furnace tuned up, there’s an ideal time. We’ll tell you when exactly that is and why in this article.
The Best Time for Furnace Tune-up
The best time for a furnace tune-up is typically in the fall, before the colder winter months. It’s recommended to have your furnace inspected and maintained annually to ensure that it’s operating efficiently and safely. Scheduling a tune-up in the early fall lets you address any potential issues or needed repairs before you start relying on your furnace heavily during the winter.
Additionally, if your HVAC technician determines that you need a new furnace, you still have time to shop for the right system for your home and have it installed before the cold weather comes.
What Happens During a Furnace Tune-up
During a furnace tune-up, one of our HVAC technicians will clean and inspect the various components of your furnace. This may include:
- Heat exchanger
- And more
They’ll also check for any signs of wear and tear, potential safety hazards, and make necessary adjustments to help it run optimally. A fall furnace tune-up is also an excellent opportunity for you to ask the technician any questions you may have.
Why Get a Furnace Tune-up?
Regular maintenance is critical to keep your furnace (and all your HVAC systems) operating properly and as efficiently as possible. Plus, it can help extend the lifespan of your furnace, improve its energy efficiency, and reduce the likelihood of unexpected breakdowns during cold weather when you need your heating system the most. Don’t forget that regular maintenance is also a crucial part of keeping your HVAC equipment warranty valid!
