What’s Included in a Heating Tune-Up Session

Maintenance on your heater is something to keep in mind during all seasons, even during a super-heated summer. If more than a year has passed since you had your furnace or heat pump scheduled for an inspection and tune-up session, late spring and summer are good times to take care of this. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you can warm up your home on the first cold day of the year with as few problems as possible.

A tune-up session for a heater covers many systems and components, and we’ll look at some of what you might expect when a maintenance technician comes to your house. Call the heating repair and maintenance specialists at Goettl Air Conditioning & Plumbing to set up your maintenance session today.

What to expect during heating system maintenance

A tune-up for your heater will vary depending on what sort of system you have: furnace (gas or electric), heat pump, radiant floor heating, etc.

  • Thermostat checks and calibrations (all systems)
  • Airflow tests (forced-air systems)
  • Cleaning the burner (gas-powered furnaces)
  • Cleaning coils (heat pumps)
  • Cleaning other dirt- and dust-contaminated components (all systems)
  • Tightening electrical connections (all systems; gas-powered heaters have electrical connections as well)
  • Checking gas flow on main natural gas line (gas-powered heaters)
  • Checking for heat exchanger cracks (gas-powered furnaces)
  • Examining floorboards for pipe leaks (radiant heating systems)
  • Replacing the air filter (all forced-air systems)
  • Flushing the tank (radiant heating systems)
  • Inspecting indoor blower motors (forced-air systems)
  • Cleaning the condensate pan (heat pumps)
  • Checking the control panel (all systems)
  • Recharging any lost refrigerant (heat pumps)

How the session goes depends on whether the technician finds faults that he or she can fix on the spot, or else make recommendations for the repairs that will remedy the problem. When the technician has finished the inspection and tune-up, your system will receive a check to make sure that it uses energy efficiently and provides the right level of heating to keep you comfortable.

Make sure you follow advice from your technician regarding any repairs you may need. The technician will help you schedule these.

Heating maintenance is mandatory

Scheduling regular maintenance for your heating system isn’t something you can skip a few years at a time. For your heater to work its best, without draining power or causing safety hazards, it requires annual inspections and tune-ups.

Call Goettl Air Conditioning & Plumbing to sign up for our thorough HAVC maintenance program. Whenever you need heating repair, we’re ready with 24-hour emergency service.

2.7.24Jay Cruz, technician, arrived on time today to service/check my ac/heating. Jay arrived timely and was friendly. Jay checked my inside unit, ceiling vents, etc and he made some recommendations. He was easy to talk to and very professional. He will be sending me an email with the recommendations and costs associated so that I can save the money to have these taken care of. I will say, no other technician has been as proficient as Jay.Yesterday, 2.6.24, I received a call from Betty. Betty was also very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She listened to me and made recommendations and advice. By the end if the call, I felt like Betty was a friend.Thank you to Jay and Betty!Late one evening I was washing clothes. Daughter noticed water on floor under washer. I was so upset and worried about finding someone to fix the problem, whatever it was, and especially the cost. Goettl this the rescue! Namely, their employee/plumber, Chris! The next day, Chris came, found the clog in my pipes, and…voilà! We joined their $14.95 per month plan and that was all we paid for a job well done! Thank you!3.26.24Tyler Leija was great! He checked my drain pipe outside with a camera. Advised everything was clear. He checked my kitchen and master bathroom sinks and toilet.

Roy A. was a pleasure to work with. He thoroughly and expertly explained all of the issues with my system with pictures and videos. He was transparent about the remediation options available to me and patiently reviewed each option with me. The install team, Daniel and Roy, were equally as awesome. They too were extremely knowledgeable, patient with my questions, and worked diligently to get my new unit up and running safely in one day. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
