Heating and Cooling Maintenance & Tune-ups
Regular maintenance is critical to keeping your furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump operating at peak efficiency. Most homeowners don’t realize how important annual maintenance is. Besides helping it run more efficiently, regular maintenance or tune-ups also protect your manufacturer’s warranty. No one wants to pay for something that would have been covered if they had kept up with regular maintenance. Plus, dirt and neglect are the top causes of furnace breakdowns. Simply having a professional clean and check your system will keep it running and catch problems before they become expensive repairs. Here are the main benefits of being on a regular maintenance plan:
- Improve efficiency
- Extend equipment lifespan
- Improve capacity
- Save on utility bills
- Reduce chance of breakdowns

- Check thermostat settings to ensure system turns on and off when programmed at specific temperatures.
- Tighten electrical connections and measure voltage and current on motors. Faulty electrical connections are a safety hazard and can reduce the life of major components.
- Lubricate moving parts. Lack of lubrication causes friction in motors which increases the amount of electricity you use. It can also cause equipment to wear out more quickly.
- Check and inspect the condensate drain in your central AC, furnace, and/or heat pump (when in cooling mode). If clogged, the drain can cause water damage, affect humidity levels in your home, and breed mold and bacteria.
- Ensure proper and safe operation of system controls. Check the starting cycle to make sure the system starts, operates, and shuts off properly.
- Inspect, clean, or change the air filter.
- Inspect the flue piping for rusting, disconnections, or evidence of back drafting.
- Check all gas (or oil) connections, gas pressure, burner combustion, and heat exchanger.
- Clean indoor and outdoor coils. A dirty coil reduces the system’s ability to cool and causes the system to run longer.
