Furnace Tune-Up in Lynnwood, WA
Like your car, your heating system requires tune-ups to perform at its best. When it’s time to schedule your tune-up, Lynnwood homeowners can turn to CM Heating to keep your heater running smoothly.
Whether your home has a furnace, boiler, heat pump, or another heating system, our HVAC experts know the proper way to maintain it.
What Is a Heater Tune-Up?
A tune-up is similar to a checkup for your heating system. It ensures that all parts of your system are in good condition, working properly, and not showing signs of damage.
When you schedule a heater tune-up with CM Heating, one of our local, licensed HVAC contractors will perform the following:
- Inspect and clean all parts of your furnace
- Check all of the electrical components
- Run tests on critical parts
- Change your heater’s air filter
- Inspect your ducts
- Lubricate moving parts that require it
During the tune-up, our technicians are always on the lookout for signs of damage or corrosion. This allows us to catch and fix problems early before the damage spreads.
Benefits of Keeping Up with Regular Furnace Maintenance
The main benefit of regular furnace maintenance is that your heating system just runs better when you keep up with regular tune-ups and maintenance. But that’s not all. Regular tune-ups and maintenance also offer the following benefits.
Extends Your Heater’s Life
Since tune-ups give our professionals the opportunity to catch problems early, it’s not surprising that they’re known to extend your heater’s lifespan. It’s easier and cheaper to fix small problems. When you neglect your heater maintenance, you run the risk of having a major breakdown.
When your heater works better, it feels better in your home. With a properly maintained furnace, you don’t have to worry and wonder if your home will reach your desired thermostat settings. Additionally, during every tune-up, one of our HVAC experts cleans your unit and changes its air filter, which improves the indoor air quality in your home.
Saves You Money on Energy Bills
Many homeowners skip annual tune-ups because they don’t want to spend money on their heater if it’s not broken. But you could actually end up spending more money by skipping maintenance. Tune-ups can improve your heater’s energy efficiency. This is not only good for the environment but good for your wallet, too.
When to Schedule Your Furnace Tune-Up in Lynnwood, WA
The best time to schedule a furnace annual tune-up is at the beginning of fall. When it starts to cool off outside, it’s time to get your furnace ready for the plummeting temperatures.
Many homeowners wait until the winter to schedule a tune-up, but having it done in the fall gives you time to get repairs done, if needed, and allows your heater a chance to warm up before the cold snap.
Heater Maintenance You Can Perform
Between annual tune-up visits, there are some small maintenance steps you can perform to keep your heater running efficiently.
Check Your Vents
Once a week or so, take a walk around your house and inspect your supply and return vents. Make sure they are flowing freely and not restricted by any debris or furniture. Blocked vents put stress on your HVAC system and could be the culprit of uneven heating in your home.
Clean Your Air Filters
Although we will change your filter during a tune-up, it may need to be cleaned between tune-ups, depending on where you live. You should check your filters once a month and clean them as needed to keep your indoor air clean and your heater running efficiently.
Visually Inspect Your HVAC Unit
It’s important to visually inspect your heater every once in a while to check for obvious problems. When you notice something off, like a leak, discolored pilot light, or corroded flue, call our Lynnwood team right away.
