What Happens During a Furnace Tune-Up?

A well-maintained furnace operates efficiently and is less prone to damage. This is why it’s important to schedule regular tune-ups and work with a qualified technician for proper HVAC maintenance.

Furnace Tune-Up

In this post, Stone Heating and Air list the tasks that experts perform during a furnace tune-up.

Blower Compartment Cleaning

Technicians thoroughly clean the blower wheel to remove dirt and dust. Clogged blower compartments force the HVAC to work harder and consume more energy during operation.

Wiring and Electronics

HVAC experts will check and re-adjust your system’s wires and electrical connections. Wiring issues are one of the main causes of exacerbated and costly HVAC malfunctions.

Burner Inspections

Furnace burners need cleaning to ensure maximum efficiency and good indoor air quality. Technicians will use special methods and equipment to clean every aspect of the burner.

Flame Operation

Technicians will inspect and adjust heat exchangers and gas lines for optimal operating pressure. They will also check other aspects concerning furnace flame operation.

Indoor Air Filter Cleaning

Clean air filters help save energy and improve indoor air quality. Technicians will inspect and replace the filters when necessary to achieve optimal HVAC performance.

Duct Connections

Technicians will check your duct connections for leaks and damage to ensure excellent airflow and efficient cooling.

Carbon Monoxide Leaks

HVAC experts will check for any presence of carbon monoxide in your system. This dangerous chemical can endanger your family if it contaminates your indoor air.

Other Areas for Inspection

HVAC technicians will check your system’s fan speed, condensate drain, blower rotation, and close damper. They may also lubricate your system’s blower and bearings before checking your operating temperature and suction line temperature.
