Furnace Tune Up & Check Up Service

Furnace Tune Up Service

Some hot tips for furnace tune up maintenance.

The start of fall is ideal for football, back-to-school activities and tackling furnace tune up and maintenance issues. Better now than when it’s freezing outside.

A+ Mechanical offers incentives and other specials on furnace tune up's during the fall, which means they can fit you in and you won’t be left in the cold. Of course, you don’t always need an expert to give your furnace expert care. Here are some things you can tackle yourself:

  • Confirm that the furnace comes on and turns off via your thermostat by setting the temperature higher than the current indoor temperature and setting the system to heating mode.

  • Check if your thermostat uses batteries and replace once a year.

  • Check the temperature of your supply air grates to ensure you’re able to feel warmth.

  • If you have an older thermostat, which could have liquid mercury switches, clean and level it to ensure proper functioning.

  • Check all visible wiring and electrical connections at the furnace for signs of damage like burns, unraveling wires and loose nuts.

  • Check your furnace vent-connection pipe and chimney for rust or gaps—venting system parts can deteriorate over time.

  • If you have a gas furnace as part of your heating system, make sure you have a clean and properly sized filter in place.

  • At the start-up of your system each fall, a tune up of the furnace burners, combustion area, venting, and look for a even flame appearance is advised. An inspection of the furnace's air intake and winterization is needed. Detailed instructions can be found in your owner’s manual or, if you’re not up to the task, your local A+ expert can take care of all the above, and much more.
