What does a furnace tune-up include?
Furnace maintenance is more than changing the air filter. Extend the service life of your furnace with yearly professional inspection & tune-ups.
Furnace maintenance checklist:
Check settings in thermostat
This ensures your heating system is programmed to maintain a comfortable temperature when you’re home, and save energy when you’re not.
Check electrical connections
Tighten if needed. Measure the motor voltage and current. Bad electrical connections can shorten the service life of major components AND cause unsafe conditions.
Lubricate moving parts
Too much friction means your furnace uses more electricity and works harder than it has to.
Inspect condensate drain
Clogged drains in heating systems can lead to water damage and alter indoor humidity.
Check system controls
Your technician will make sure the heating system start cycle, operation, and shutoff are functioning as designed, for safe and efficient operation.
Professional furnace maintenance involves inspecting the furnace, control box, ignition system (or pilot light), blower, burner assembly, ducting, and other components, cleaning and making adjustments as necessary. We’ll also check the amps and voltage of the fan motor and compressor, and calibrate the thermostat if needed.
One way homeowners can help maintain their furnace is by replacing the filters. We’re happy to help you determine the best type of air filter for your type of furnace and recommend a schedule.
How often should you have your furnace serviced?
At minimum you should have your furnace serviced by a professional once each fall, before the really cold weather kicks in.
For optimal performance we recommend furnace service in both fall and spring.
Furnaces in Wisconsin work hard, and a thorough examination and cleaning at the beginning and end of your furnace's "busy season" will help your HVAC system run efficiently year round.
