Homeowners know that when their heating system doesn’t work properly anymore, they should call a technical pro for heating repairs. What many homeowners however don’t understand is that regularly maintaining their furnace is very important in the longer-term to make sure that their cooling and heating systems keep on working at the most efficient levels.

Older heating systems and furnaces need a little attention and care to remain in good condition and to make sure you get the best possible efficiency throughout the year. If a heating tune-up isn’t conducted each year, older HVAC systems are more likely to become inefficient fast while it also increases the risk of failures, especially with cold weather when it must work harder. heat tune-ups by the professional HVAC experts at bluefrog of San Antonio, TX prolongs the lifespan of heating systems. Also, it gives you peace of mind about looming breakdowns, having to replace the heating system soon, or higher than normal utility bills.
If your furnace has been running without problems for the past few years, you may think it’s not worthwhile to schedule a heating tune-up before next winter. Furnaces and heating systems experience wear and tear while working hard through the year. Although this may not lead to breakdowns, it will result in your furnace’s efficiency decreasing over time, and this in turn will translate to higher than normal utility bills. One way to keep your energy bills reasonable is to do heat tune-ups each year, leaving you with a cleaned and inspected heating system. This offsets the damage done by wear and tear and takes care of efficiency losses, restoring your heating system to the best possible performance.
When you tune up your car regularly, it will safeguard it from normal wear and tear while ensuring it keeps running at the best possible level. The same principle is true for the parts in a furnace. But what does a heating tune-up include?
A bluefrog of San Antonio, TX furnace tune-up checklist includes:
Heat pumps have the dual function of cooling and heating a home. This is the reason we recommend heat pumps be tuned up semi-annually. A heat pump is the central air system that performs the functions of an air conditioner and a furnace. Tune-ups for the AC should be scheduled before summer and for the furnace before winter.
The tune-up checklist used for furnaces differs slightly from what may be on a checklist for heat pump tune-ups due to the differences between the types of equipment.
Homeowners are often not sure whether it’s worthwhile to tune up new heating systems. Just like new cars, new heating systems should be regularly maintained, and heat tune-ups should be performed annually. This is one of the best ways to help ensure a new system will work properly for as long as specified. A new furnace normally lasts from 15 to 20 years, but this is only true if annual heat tune-ups are done regularly. If this isn’t the case, the system will likely fail much sooner.
As a furnace normally lasts from 15 to 20 years if it is well-maintained, it’s worthwhile to do them regularly to safeguard your investment.
