Our crew was recently called into action in the city of Hinckley, where we recently completed a heating system tune-up for one of our customers. A heating tune-up service is a crucial part of owning and operating a furnace, as it not only helps it last longer and work better, but can also help it save energy, which means a lower operating cost, a warmer home, and a better quality of life.
A heating system tune-up should be done every year by a licensed Cleveland heating and cooling professional, including those from Arco Comfort Air. Over time, your furnace will accumulate a collection of dirt and dust, which may also include pet hair, dander, and other debris that may be floating in the air throughout your home. While your air filter removes most of this, an old air filter that isn’t replaced will eventually wear out and allow more through.
A maintenance service will clean all of this debris out, as well as tighten electrical connections, clean out important components, inspect trouble spots, and much more. Our team members will even go in and inspect your thermostat to make sure it’s properly calibrated and adequately controlling the temperature in your home.
Think of it this way: your furnace is actually a lot like your car. Everyone knows that in order for your car to keep running as long as possible and stay in good condition, you need to regularly maintain it. This includes things like changing tires that are worn out, changing brake pads to stay safe, changing engine oil that becomes dirty and bogged down, and even simple things like swapping out your windshield wipers. If you don’t do these things, your car will break down more often, you’ll spend a ton of money on repairs, and it’ll die far sooner than it otherwise should.
Well, your heating and cooling system is much the same way: if you don’t maintain it properly, you could experience problems. For perspective, you run your HVAC equipment for an average of around 3,300 hours per year. At 65 miles per hour, 3,300 hours in your car would allow you to travel 214,500 miles. Can you imagine driving nearly a quarter-million miles without getting an oil change? Of course not, so why would you force your heating and cooling equipment to do so?
Here are just a few of the benefits of an annual heating system tune up:
- Ensuring safe operation
- Extending the life of your system
- Prevent costly breakdowns
- Reducing your energy costs
- Saving you money
As professional heating and cooling experts, we strongly advise that you have your HVAC system serviced by a professional twice a year—once in the fall before winter sets in, and once again in the spring before heat forces you to fire up your air conditioner. When these systems have been sitting idle for days, turning them on again before they’ve been maintained and prepared is usually when most breakdowns occur. If you want to avoid them, we suggest having them maintained ahead of time.
