Fall is the best time to schedule a tune-up for your home’s furnace. You need your heating system in ideal condition to make sure that your family is comfortable and keep your utility bills low. Here’s what you can expect from your professional heating system tune-up.


The first step in every maintenance appointment is inspecting your furnace’s major components. Your HVAC expert will check your heat exchanger for any cracks or leaks and check that the flue and vent systems are in good condition. Every part, from the air intake system to the belts and fans, plays a role in your system’s efficiency. Your technician will search thoroughly for any frayed belts, corroding parts, or other issues that need to be corrected.


After your HVAC expert has completed their inspection, they’ll scrub down the inside of your unit. Grimy components will lower the system’s output and potentially prevent it from running. For example, if the blower motor gets too dirty, it can start overheating, which will cause it to fail prematurely. On the other hand, a flame sensor can get so filthy that it cannot detect your pilot light. This will prevent the furnace from starting a cycle.

Lubrication and Part Replacement

Many of the moving parts inside your system need lubrication to stop them from grinding or creating unnecessary friction. Sufficient lubrication prevents excessive wear and tear and stops your furnace from struggling to heat your home. Toward the end of the appointment, your technician will also make repair recommendations based on their findings. Replacing failing parts can correct minor issues before they become expensive repairs.
