Furnace Tune-Up

Furnace Tune-Up

Most furnaces require a tune-up once per year. Yet maintenance and tune-ups are among the most neglected ways of caring for your furnace. The benefits of having your furnace tuned up include saving money on energy costs, preventing future breakdowns, and extending the life of your furnace. 

Benefits of Furnace Maintenance

Let’s discuss the benefits of furnace maintenance in more detail. Some of the benefits include:


Fewer System Repairs

A furnace that is running smoothly causes less wear and tear on moving parts and systems. That means you pay for fewer furnace repairs and extend the system’s life. In addition, that once-per-year maintenance call saves you a lot of money in repair and replacement costs for your furnace. 


Greater System Efficiency

When your furnace is operating at peak efficiency, it uses the least amount of gas or electricity to heat your home or business. Conversely, a furnace that struggles to heat your home or business uses more gas or electricity, which drives up the monthly cost of heating your space. 


More Effective Heating

A tuned-up furnace will efficiently heat a home or business, making it easier for you to create the perfect ambient indoor temperature without turning up the thermostat. 


Eliminating Breakdowns

Tuning up a furnace means that each component works smoothly and produces the least possible wear on the system. That smooth operation also means that future breakdowns disappear, and you extend the unit’s life. 


How Often Should You Have a Furnace Tune-Up?

Most manufacturers recommend having a furnace serviced once per year, preferably in the fall before you turn the system on for the first time. The exception to that rule is for heat pumps that also cool your home in summer. Heat pumps that are used all year should be maintained and tuned every six months.

Welsch Heating & Cooling offers comprehensive HVAC  services from trained heating and cooling specialists. We work fast, efficiently, and accurately to bring your furnace back to factory specifications. 


Furnace Tune-Ups Save Time, Energy, and Money

When your furnace is not functioning correctly, it can create a dangerous situation within your home or business. Not only can a failing furnace produce excess CO2, but it can also often drive up your energy bills and do a poor job of heating your home or business. 

A furnace that will not start creates a situation where you may not be able to use your home or business, especially during harsh winters. However, no heat in a harsh winter can create a dangerous situation for you and your family. 

Furnace tune-ups are easy, affordable, and they keep your furnace running at peak efficiency. In addition, they are an easy way to prevent breakdowns, which can be costly. A tune-up for your furnace means that:

  • There are fewer repair calls
  • You avoid higher energy bills
  • The lifespan of the unit is extended

Installation technicians were here on time saw them a few minutes before they knocked at the appointment time.  I really felt bad for them considering the weather today.  But, they are really hard working professionals and weather did not impede them!  They installed both a new furnace and air conditioning...

P.S. I forgot to mention that Ed was our family repairman for a long time — I have good memories of him giving me broken parts to play with/disassemble when I was a kid!

We called Welsch to provide a second opinion after another service provider recommended a new furnace. The technician was not only professional, prompt and courteous, he was unbelievably thorough! He insisted on combing through every aspect of our furnace to diagnose a problem, and found one in the most unlikely...

Welsch Heating and Cooling has always been a great company for my family’s HVAC needs. Pure professionals!


By the way, Welsh just installed a new system (furnace and a/c) in my father’s town house in Eureka. His a/c went out during the height of the August heat wave. Denny Turlin was our sales rep. As always, we got great service from Denny and your company!
