With the Winter months fast approaching, it’s important to prepare your home and your family for the inevitable drop in temperatures by completing a furnace tune-up. A tune-up can help your furnace run more efficiently, keeping you warmer and costing you less. To learn more about what a furnace tune-up is and why it’s important, keep reading.

Basics of a Furnace Tune-Up in Raleigh

The ultimate goal of a furnace tune-up is to ensure your home’s furnace heating system is working optimally. Many homeowners fail to realize the importance of a tune-up, and as such, the HVAC systems in their homes must work in overdrive to try and produce enough heat to keep everyone comfortable. The bottom line is that a tune-up will determine and fix problematic areas with your furnace, allowing your HVAC system to work better and with less power consumption.

Furnace Inspection

So, just what exactly does a furnace tune-up consist of? First, there’s a thorough inspection of your furnace with all the surrounding components and blowers. If there’s a loose nut, bolt or some other part not in the correct place, the Comfort Guy will fix it.

Cleaning The Furnace’s Duct System

The duct system is another area that a professional HVAC technician checks when performing a furnace tune-up. After years of use, ducts sometimes get filled with dust and debris, making your home’s HVAC system work less efficiently than what it should. In addition, dust mites can actually live and thrive in dirty ducts, something no homeowner wants. Even if you keep your house clean, dust mites will be blown throughout the house every time you turn on your heating or air conditioner. Our technician will remove the ducts and clean them out.

Furnace Safety Test And Carbon Monoxide

A safety test should also be performed on your system during a furnace tune-up. The technician typically runs a battery of tests aimed to ensure that no harmful chemicals or byproducts are being created as a result of your furnace. We all know about the dangers of carbon monoxide, as it’s the leading cause of poison-related deaths here in the U.S. To prevent this from happening to you or your family, you should hire an HVAC technician to come out and inspect your furnace and check for carbon monoxide.
