What Technicians Actually Do During a Heater Tune-Up

Do you own a car? Chances are if you do, you likely keep up on its maintenance. You know that without a regularly scheduled tune-up, your car may leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere due to a premature breakdown. Doesn’t your heater deserve the same attention?

We may not experience the drastically frigid temperatures that other parts of the country do during the winter, but we still battle some pretty cold nighttime temperatures. And when we do, we want to make sure our heaters are up to the task of keeping us warm and cozy.

Heater Maintenance

A heating system tune-up can help you avoid premature heater breakdown, and can also save you a lot of money by reducing the need for repairs. If you still aren’t convinced, keep reading to learn more about what is actually completed during your heater tune-up, to better understand the benefits.

Cleaning: When the components of your heater are dirty, they can’t perform as they should. For example, if a coil in your heat pump is blocked by a layer of dust, then it might be unable to absorb heat from the outside air. Likewise, a dirty furnace burner might not be able to generate heat effectively.

Adjusting: At times, various parts of your heating system will need to be adjusted due to becoming loose or bent as time wears on. This might include a bent flame sensor in a furnace, a loose panel, or even a damaged heat pump coil. Even one small faulty component can have a domino effect on the rest of your system.

Inspection: This is one of the most important steps of a heater tune-up—the inspection. During this time, our highly trained technicians look for potential health and safety risks that can be created by your heater, as well as anything that can impact your heater’s performance.
