Furnace Tune Up Checklist

Fall’s on its way, which means it’s time to run through Ray & Son’s heat pump or furnace tune up checklist. It’s important to get your South Georgia heating system ready for chilly weather! Learn what’s included, how often it’s needed, and how to save on needed furnace and heat pump maintenance.

How Often Do I Need Furnace Maintenance?

South Georgia and North Florida homes with furnace heating systems require maintenance once per year. For heat pumps, we recommend tune ups twice a year – once before cooling season and once before heating season. Ideally, complete the furnace tune up checklist in the early fall, before outdoor temperatures begin to dip.

Why Do Furnaces Need Regular Tune Ups?

  • Furnace maintenance improves system performance to deliver better comfort over the entirety of heating season.
  • Preventive service boosts the furnace’s energy efficiency, this helps homeowners save money on the heating bills ahead!
  • A furnace tune up is an opportunity to catch minor problems and solve them before major breakdowns occur, which leave you without heating when you need it most. Prevent HVAC repair needs when we catch issues before they become headaches.
  • Early fall is the right time to schedule to ensure your furnace is ready to go when that first cool day arrives. Don’t be stuck in a panic when your furnace doesn’t start!
  • Many HVAC equipment manufacturers require annual furnace maintenance to maintain warranty coverage. Skipping the furnace maintenance checklist may void your warranty.

Why Do Heat Pumps Need Two Tune Ups?

Because heat pumps provide both heating and cooling, a heat pump works all year long. It needs two tune ups to address both heating and air conditioning needs. A furnace needs one annual tune up because the air conditioner gets the other one.

Has Your Furnace Had It?

If your furnace is 8 to 10 years old, is inefficient or has cost you more in repairs than you care to admit, it’s time to consider a new one. When you upgrade your furnace you upgrade your comfort and air quality. HVAC technology has increased efficiency a lot in the last decade.

Remember, it’s important for an HVAC professional to measure and calculate the precise size you need. Don’t let an HVAC contractor install one that’s “plenty big” or even the same size as your current one without doing the math.

An improperly-sized HVAC unit causes problems, so use a quality HVAC contractor like Ray & Son for your furnace installation needs.
