Why is your A/C or Furnace tune-up so important? Think about when you go to the doctor for a regular check-up to ensure that you’re healthy. Your heating/cooling systems require regular check-ups as well. Annual tune-ups are very important to the efficiency of your unit as well as to the safety of your home. Think of your home as the body and your HVAC unit as the brain. Your body is at its best as long as the brain is functioning properly!

Take a look at the 5 top reasons to schedule your furnace tune-up this fall:


Ensure Proper Airflow

Unnecessary strain on your furnace caused by restricted or limited airflow can lead to frequent repairs and decrease the value of your unit. Be sure to keep a clean filter.

Keep Your Home & Family Safe

During the combustion process, your furnace should be running at its highest peak. Even the smallest problem can lead to gas leaks in your home or dangerous carbon monoxide levels.

Improve Energy Efficiency

To ensure a safe operation all winter, cleaning the furnace burner and heat exchanger will keep your furnace running efficiently.

Reduce Repairs

Catch small problems before they turn into major repairs. Increase the value and life span of your investment in your furnace by reducing unexpected repairs.

Save Time

A routine maintenance tune-up will provide less hassle, less worry and prevent you from waiting on a technician in the freezing cold.

Annual system tune-ups have many benefits that range from personal comfort to reduced utility bills; both of which can have a significant impact on your day to day life.
