Furnace Maintenance Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the most frequently asked questions we get about furnace maintenance:
What’s the best time to get a furnace tune-up?
We recommend scheduling furnace tune-ups in the fall, so you’re ready for the winter but aren’t trying to schedule during a busy time for HVAC contractors. You use your furnace the most during winter, so you’ll want all the advantages of a tune-up to get you through the season.
Improvements in efficiency, reliability, and performance that come with a tune-up mean you’ll stay more comfortable for less expense during the coldest days.
Can a poorly maintained furnace be dangerous?
Any appliance in poor condition can be dangerous, but when dealing with heat and electricity — and in some cases gas, combustion, and combustion byproducts — a small problem can become a serious safety hazard.
Your furnace is built and installed to be safe even in some level of disrepair, but poor maintenance makes it far more likely for a problem to slip through the cracks and put you or your property in danger.
How do furnace tune-ups help lower bills?
Every year your furnace operates, the moving and electrical components degrade, loosen, etc. This wear and tear eventually leads to your system needing to use more power to achieve the same results, which wastes energy — driving up power and gas bills — and puts more strain on the parts, accelerating their wear and exacerbating the issue until you have a breakdown and need repairs or replacement.
