Benefits of Regular Furnace Maintenance
There are many benefits to scheduling maintenance for your furnace, including better energy efficiency, a longer furnace lifespan, and avoiding costly repairs. Many manufacturers require preventive maintenance from qualified HVAC professionals to keep warranty coverage intact. Don’t risk voiding your warranty and preventable repairs or breakdowns with maintenance neglect!
As it sits unused throughout the long, hot summer and into fall, your furnace collects dust and grime, both within the system and on the coils. Parts lose lubrication and stop moving as effectively.
The end result is that your furnace has to work much harder to produce the same amount of heating that it once did, and all that hard work means higher energy bills for you. When a certified Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning technician inspects your furnace annually, he or she cleans out the contaminants and lubricates parts, resulting in a highly-efficient furnace.
Most furnaces live between 15-20 years, but only if properly maintained. That’s because, like any fine-tuned machine, furnaces eventually have parts break or wear down over time. Situations like ignoring maintenance or dirty air filters age your equipment more quickly.
A furnace tune up from Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning helps catch parts before they fail and replace them. This allows your furnace to get a second chance at life and reduces your operating costs. If you’d like to get the most out of your furnace, schedule your furnace tune up now.
Without regular maintenance, there is a risk that your furnace could break down in the middle of the season. It’s an unwritten rule that heating systems seem to break down on the coldest day of the year. Just like your air conditioner, your furnace experiences incredible stresses: it often operates for hours at a time.
If it’s not in top-shape and well-maintained, the chance something might break multiplies. If you have a heat pump, it works all year long and never, ever gets an “off season” break. Heat pumps need tune ups twice a year because of their dual purpose. Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning‘s technicians replace worn parts and catch issues before they lead to a complete system failure. This work can also help extend your system’s life. If you do need furnace repair, we can help.
What Our Furnace Tune-Up Includes
Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning offers a comprehensive and thorough furnace tune-up. Here are just a few of the things we do:
- Inspect all components
- Clean dirty furnace components
- Lubricate all moving parts

Typically, the best time of year to schedule your furnace tune up is in the early fall before you first turn on your furnace for the season. This allows us to identify any problems before the system starts up and makes them worse. It also gives you the best return on your investment in terms of energy savings. However, there’s no bad time to schedule a furnace tune up.
Most people have an annual tune up in the early or late fall. However, if you have an older system, it might not be a bad idea to schedule a second maintenance halfway through the winter to make sure that your system will make it through the rest of the season without any trouble.
When it comes to maintenance, it pays to plan ahead. If you use a heat pump, schedule tune ups twice a year – ideally in spring and fall. Because it both heats and cools, it needs the care of both a furnace and an air conditioner.
Many websites have video guides showing you how to do a furnace tune up by yourself. However, we certainly wouldn’t recommend it. First and foremost, doing your own maintenance could void your manufacturer’s warranty.
Second, you could cause significant damage. Finally, our team uses special tools to access components and to measure performance. Don’t risk CO poisoning, for example, from a cracked heat exchanger because you wanted to save a few bucks. Instead, just call Ray & Son Heating & Air Conditioning for your HVAC maintenance. For the most savings, join our preventive maintenance program.
