The professionals at CM Heating can give your furnace a tune-up, which not only keeps it running longer and more efficiently, it can help you avoid costly repair bills. A tune-up can help catch potential problems and minor repair issues before they become bigger problems.

What Happens During a Furnace Tune-Up?
Furnace tune-ups can vary from unit to unit, depending on the make, manufacturer, year of manufacturer, and condition. However, in general, we inspect your furnace to ensure it works as it should and all the parts are in good working order. In a tune-up, we carefully check the following elements in your furnace:
- Safety controls
- Combustion system
- Controls and safeties
- Fan switch
- Flue pipe
- Pilot and assembly
- Gas line (for a gas furnace tune-up)
All tune-ups include inspecting for rust and visible damage. Also, as part of your heater tune-up, we’ll replace your furnace’s air filters.
Air filters are a very important part of your furnace. Clogged air filters make your system less efficient because it has to work harder to distribute the heat. Also, dirty filters can allow mold, dust, and other undesirable particulates to circulate through your Mountlake Terrace, WA, home.
Why Is a Furnace Tune-Up Important?
Your furnace is off and sitting idle during the warm months, which means it may accumulate dust, especially without regular tune-ups. If your furnace is dirty, its parts may begin to wear down. As a result, it will need more energy to push heating to the living spaces of your home, which causes more wear and tear. That becomes a vicious cycle as the furnace uses more power and works harder to heat your home.
Also, a furnace tune-up can be a safety issue. If your furnace’s heat exchanger is cracked or damaged, your furnace could leak carbon monoxide, which is a colorless, odorous deadly gas. A furnace tune-up will check to ensure the heat exchanger and other parts are working well and safely.
If your furnace is making strange noises, it is a sure sign you need a tune-up at least. Popping noises could indicate a dirty burner, which is an issue you should address immediately.
Furnace Tune-Up Benefits
Mountlake Terrace, WA, residents sometimes ask us, if my furnace is running fine, why should I have a tune-up? As is the case with getting your car a tune-up, there are many benefits to having a furnace tune-up.
If your furnace isn’t running the way it should, your home can feel stuffy or sticky. You may notice excess dust. Also, your home may not heat the way it should, which means you could be left cold in the chilly Mountlake Terrace, WA, winters.
Increase Energy Efficiency
A furnace tune-up can increase your furnace’s efficiency by up to 30%. If your heating system is running more efficiently, the associated energy costs will be less over time.
Longer Lasting Furnace
Regular tune-ups on your furnace can help it run longer. A well-maintained furnace doesn’t have to work as hard, so it doesn’t wear out as quickly.
Some furnace manufacturers require that the furnace receive regular maintenance from certified professionals like CM Heating to keep the warranty active. An active warranty can save you money if your furnace ever does break down.
