Now that fall is here, you’re probably getting around to the usual fall season chores — raking the leaves, cleaning the gutters, putting away the garden hoses. You and your family may even be practicing your Pig Sooie chants for the big game. But if you’re like most homeowners in the Fayetteville, Arkansas, area, there’s probably one thing you’ve forgetting about: your furnace.
Furnace maintenance is essential if you want your heating system to run at its best through the fall and into the winter. Is your furnace going to run smoothly the first time you turn on your heating system this season, or is there a chance that it could fail when the first cold spell hits?
Why Furnace Maintenance Is So Important
Furnace maintenance is a lot like car maintenance. If you want your furnace to run smoothly and efficiently year after year, it needs regular care and attention. As home heating and air conditioning specialists, we recommend scheduling a furnace tune-up at least once a year. You might schedule these annual tune-ups on your own every fall, or you can enroll in a maintenance plan which makes heating maintenance simple with automatic, regular inspection service (plus other benefits like discounts on repairs!)
With regular furnace maintenance, you can expect benefits like lower heating bills, a reduced risk of breakdowns, healthier indoor air quality, and a more energy efficient, longer lasting furnace.
What Does a Furnace Tune-Up Entail?
A furnace tune-up includes a complete inspection of your heating unit, plus optimizations to ensure it runs at its best. Here’s what’s on a typical heating tune-up checklist:
Visually inspecting the unit for any issues
Inspecting and testing all safety controls
Cleaning the burners, pilot, and other key parts
Replacing the air filter
Tightening all electrical connections
Lubricating all moving parts
Checking thermostat operation and settings
