Do You Know What to Expect from a Furnace Tune-up?

It’s no surprise that winter is on its way. Despite the fact that it may feel as though fall just began, it is time to start thinking about getting your home ready for the winter. One thing that should be on your list is a furnace tune-up. There are many benefits to a tune-up and Econo West Heating, Air & Plumbing is here to provide comprehensive services. Contact us today at (661) 269-0308 to get started.

The advantages of furnace cleaning and maintenance

When you turn to the heating and cooling specialists for help maintaining your furnace, you can expect a wealth of benefits including energy savings, more easily regulated temperatures throughout your home or business, fewer breakdowns, and a HVAC system that lasts longer. Additionally, your warranty may be voided if you do not get regular maintenance, and having your furnace inspected and serviced can help prevent safety issues like electrical or gas problems.

We begin by cleaning and inspecting

When we come out to you for furnace maintenance, the first thing we’ll do is clean and inspect your furnace. We will look for any warning sign that there is an issue with your system. This involves cleaning the burners and the compartment that house all the internal components. We will also clean the blower motor and condensate drains.

As we are completing this inspection, we will let you know if we spot any areas of concern. We can go through them, offer options, and provide a plan to repair or replace your furnace. When you have regular maintenance, you are more likely to catch issues earlier. The earlier you find a problem, the more likely you will be to be able to fix it without a breakdown and without replacing the entire system.

We will test the system

We will do a thorough test to ensure that the system is working correctly and producing enough hot air. This test may involve cycling the furnace off and on. We will check the check to ensure that there is enough combustion for the required amount of airflow and ensure that the temperature on your thermostat is correctly rising as the heating system runs. During this phase, we will also make minor repairs (such as adding lubricant) to any moving parts that are in need of maintenance.

We will check the fuel lines

If there is a blockage in your fuel lines, then your system is not going to work as well as it should – but this is the least of your worries. A blockage in fuel lines can end up causing a fire in your home or business. As a result, it is important to regularly have your fuel lines checked.

For most units, we recommend yearly maintenance. All it takes is one visit per year for us to check your furnace, make sure it is cleaned and running properly, and to catch any minor issues before they become major issues.
