How a Furnace Tune Up Can Prevent a Breakdown

How a Furnace Tune Up Can Prevent a Breakdown

Most people would never dream of driving their vehicles without ever checking and changing the oil, tires, or windshield wipers. Brakes need to be checked and the fluids topped off. The bottom line is maintenance is needed to make sure you have the means to drive safely when you need it.

The furnace in your home is no different. To keep your home heated and comfortable all winter long, you should be proactive and have trained professionals like Brackett Heating & Air complete a comprehensive furnace tune up. Having furnace maintenance before you need it is best, but if the temperatures are already dropping, no matter, just get it done. 


Safe operation of your heating equipment and the safety and health of your loved ones are the primary reasons to schedule regular furnace tune ups for your heating system. It’s important to keep the components clean to allow them to run efficiently and at peak performance. Additionally, most HVAC manufacturers require regular maintenance to keep their warranties valid. Scheduled furnace tune-ups can help avoid premature breakdowns of your furnace and high out of pocket costs for issues that could be covered by your warranty. Finally, faulty heat exchangers or other issues may cause more serious concerns, such as carbon monoxide poisoning, if your furnace is gas powered.


Furnace tune-ups usually include a complete inspection of the parts of the furnace. If you have a heat pump, the outdoor unit will be checked and cleaned as well. By having a trained technician check out your heating system, potentially damaging repairs can be completed before they become major problems. Brackett Heating & Air offers a “No Breakdown Guarantee” for our regular maintenance customers who follow our recommendations for any needed furnace repairs. If you have a system breakdown during the current season, after we’ve completed the furnace tune-up and completed any necessary repairs, we’ll return to fix the issue at no cost to you.
