Why Should I Tune-Up My Furnace?


All of us know the importance of having our automobiles tuned up. We know if we do, we will continue to have good fuel economy as well as increase the longevity of our vehicles and avoid costly repairs.

The same principles apply to our heating and cooling systems in Boise and Meridian. In fact, anything that has moving parts needs preventive maintenance. In September, we will start calling our customers that have an annual contract with us and setting appointments to tune-up their furnace. What do we do when we perform a furnace tune-up? Here is what you can expect.

  • Inspect your entire furnace from top to bottom.
  • Inspect the Heat Exchanger for rust and cracking
  • Inspect and if needed adjust the burners
  • Inspect gas valve for proper operation
  • Check and clean the flame sensor and igniter
  • Inspect all wiring and electronics
  • Clean the entire furnace
  • Replace furnace filters
  • Check thermostat calibration
  • Inspect blower motor and lube (If applicable)
  • Inspect blower fan for wear and balance

As you can see, by having this service done each fall, it will eliminate many problems and increase the life of your furnace. At Greens Heating and Air, we recommend that you have an annual ‘Peak Performance Agreement’ with us so we can come out in the spring to tune up your air conditioner or heat pump.

The U.S. Department of Energy says that you can save up to $140 on your annual heating and cooling bill just by having a preventive maintenance done on your heating and cooling system.
