The Steps of a Heating Tune Up

Just as you’re supposed to bring your car to the mechanic or the dealer for a tune up every six months to a year, a professional tune up can benefit your home heating system as well. Because it’s likely one of the largest appliances in your home, and because it can be costly to replace, your heating system deserves attention too, and most experts recommend a maintenance visit every year.

Call on the professionals at Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning for a thorough heating tune up or to enroll in our money-saving maintenance program.

A heating tune-up can help you to save a lot of money over the course of a year. Not only does a tune-up keep your system running as efficiently as possible; it also can reduce the potential for repair needs in the future. The following steps used during a heating tune-up may save you hundreds over the course of the year—but only if you allow a professional to do the work.

  • Cleaning: When the parts of your heating system are dirty, they cannot perform as necessary. If a coil in your heat pump is blocked by a layer of dust, for example, it may be unable to absorb heat from the outside air. A dirty furnace burner may be unable to generate heat as needed. Cleaning the components allows your unit to run as intended at optimum efficiency.
  • Adjustment: Sometimes parts must be adjusted occasionally as they can become loose or bent as time goes on. This may include a bent flame sensor of a furnace, a loose furnace panel, or a bent heat pump coil. If one small component is faulty, the other components may also begin to struggle as a result and can become overworked
  • Inspection: One of the most important steps of maintenance is the inspection, during which a technician looks for any potential health and safety risks or anything that may affect the performance of your unit. You’ll be informed of anything in need of urgent repair so you can schedule any additional services ASAP.

Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning offers a maintenance program with additional benefits such as preferred pricing on repairs and equipment along with two maintenance visits a year.
