HVAC DIY Tips & Tricks
A furnace tune-up is a maintenance service performed to ensure it’s operating at its peak efficiency and performance. This service typically involves cleaning, inspecting, and adjusting various parts and performing necessary repairs.
A furnace tune-up typically includes inspections of the thermostat, pilot light, burners, blower, and gas connections. It also includes cleaning and a safety check.
The signs include strange noises, inadequate heating, frequent cycling, and a yellow flame instead of blue. An increase in your energy bills is also a giveaway.
We recommend an annual tune-up to keep the furnace in good working condition and ensure it is operating at its peak efficiency.
The good news is they’re not a big drain on your wallet. Depending on your location, your furnace type, and the company, you’ll pay between $150-$250.
Generally, a furnace tune-up can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. This varies based on the type of furnace and maintenance required.
