Do you know that an annual furnace tune-up can save you time and money? At Wilson Plumbing & Heating, Inc. in Northeastern Ohio, we offer annual furnace services to keep your furnace running smoothly and prevent costly repairs. With an annual furnace tune-up, your family will have greater protection against a furnace suddenly going out on a frigid winter night.

Here are several reasons why an annual furnace-tune up is a wise idea:

Inspections head off problems. Just as you benefit from taking your vehicle in for regular inspections and service, you will benefit from annual furnace tune-ups. Our technicians will inspect the wiring system, lubricate parts, and replace anything that is worn. This helps head off more expensive problems in the future.

Your furnace works more efficiently. Over time, your furnace filter can get clogged with airborne particles. These particles can clog up other areas in your heating and air ducts. Blocked passages mean lower efficiency, which translates to higher bills and a shorter system life. Our technicians are trained to eliminate any blocked passages for greater efficiency.

A maintained system is reliable. While no system is guaranteed for life, a properly maintained system is more likely to keep running during those icy-cold winter nights. Our technicians will be able to spot any problem areas that could shut your system down when you need it the most.

Your home feels more comfortable. With an annual furnace tune-up, our technicians will inspect your thermostat and recalibrate it if needed. They will also check to make sure heat is evenly distributed throughout the rooms of your home, so everyone can feel cozy through the cold winter.

Your furnace will make your home healthier. A neglected system can have dirty filters that trap mold spores and circulate them through your home, which may cause health problems. Our technicians will make sure your system is running as cleanly as possible. They will also look for any leaks of carbon monoxide. A properly maintained furnace channels carbon monoxide exhaust outside the home. If any backup is occurring, our technicians will resolve the problem immediately.

What do we inspect during an annual furnace tune-up? Here’s a basic list, though we will tailor it to your unique needs:

  • Thermostat—we calibrate it to the proper setting

  • Electrical wires—we fix any loose wires that will pose risks

  • Moving parts—we check them for problems and lubricate them for smooth movement

  • Drain—we make sure no blockage has formed

  • Blowers—we make sure they are operating at peak efficiency

  • Controls—we inspect for any problems

  • Fuel lines—we make sure the connections are safe

  • Pressure system—we adjust the pressure for efficiency

Call us to schedule an annual furnace tune-up today. It’s best to schedule your annual tune-up in summer or early fall, before winter arrives. But if it’s been a while since your furnace was inspected, or if your system is more than 10 years old, we’ll be happy to look at it any time of year.
