Why You Need a Furnace Tune Up
Fall is here and winter is not far behind. It’s time to think about how you’re going to keep warm this winter without breaking the bank.
The main thing is to have your furnace checked and tuned. Whether electric, propane, gas or a heat pump.
Do this early before the cold spells hit. If you wait until your area’s first arctic blast you may have to wait several weeks, yes weeks until there is an heating and cooling specialist able come out to your home.
Your heating equipment has been sitting dormant for several months and by having your equipment tuned up before you actually need it you can save hundreds (yes hundreds) in unnecessary repair calls.
Many people that wait until the cold hits find that their equipment fails at the most crucial time. A tune up can prevent the failure of your equipment and catch many other problems which can result in expensive repairs.
Also having your furnace tuned up and checked before you use it could prevent things like a crack developing in your heat exchanger in a gas or propane furnace which results in carbon monoxide being pumped into your Oklahoma City home. A dangerous occurrence that happens much too frequently due to furnace neglect.
A break in your electrical elements in your electrical furnace could cause a fire.
A leak in your heat pump could lead to a break down in your compressor and reversing valve which could destroy the most important and expensive parts of your unit.
