What’s Included in a Service Call
If you’ve never had your furnace serviced before, you may wonder what is included in a furnace tune up and inspection call. You can expect an HVAC professional to perform a complete inspection of your furnace along with a thorough cleaning, while answering any questions and providing recommendations once the inspection is complete.
A Complete Inspection
Furnaces are complex pieces of equipment that have many moving parts that should be inspected, and the components may vary depending on whether you have an electric or gas furnace. A qualified furnace technician will check all aspects of the system, from the vents, blower, filters, and burner to the electrical connections, safety controls, belts, and thermostat. If the technician discovers any worn, cracked, or damaged parts, he or she can usually perform the needed repairs or replacements on the spot, and if not, order the parts that need to be replaced. The goal of this thorough inspection is to ensure all components are operating as they should be, and that all parts of your furnace are in good condition.
Equally important as the inspection, your HVAC professional will also perform a thorough cleaning of your furnace. Inefficient operation is one of the leading causes of increased heating costs, and when your furnace has a buildup of dirt, dust, and other debris, the airflow and operation of the unit as a whole can be significantly impacted. The furnace service technician will replace air filters if needed, check and address any type of corrosion or buildup that has formed inside the furnace and on electrical components. He or she will also clean your condensation line and drip tray if your furnace has these features.
Once the furnace tune up is complete, the service tech will make time to review what tasks were completed and answer any questions or address any concerns that you may have. During this time, he or she will also review any specific components that are showing excessive wear and share his or her recommendations for solutions. If you have been considering replacing or upgrading your furnace, this is an opportune time to speak with the service tech about your heating and cooling desires. For example, if you’re thinking of adding additional zones to your home, or if you’re thinking about purchasing a programmable thermostat, asking for recommendations can be helpful.
