Is a Furnace Tune-Up Worth It?


How often should you have a furnace inspection? Or do you even need one at all? If you find yourself asking these questions, you’re not alone. Whether or not an annual inspection and tune-up is really necessary might be one of our most often encountered questions. And if you’re looking for definitive answers, you’ve come to the right place.

Can I Avoid Furnace Inspection and Maintenance?

In a literal sense, you certainly can. But you can compare doing so to avoiding an oil change for your car, or avoiding replacing a burnt out light bulb. You don’t have to do those things. But without doing them, your car and lights are going to be a lot less useful. Your heating system is very similar.

Routine maintenance services ensure your heating system gets all of the care and service it needs, including cleaning, parts checks, component care, among other services that serve to optimize your heating system, maintaining its efficiency and allowing you to avoid costly repair services.

Similarly, a furnace tune-up optimizes your system to last much longer and work more effectively in your home. A solid, professional tune-up service can add years to your heating system, and drastically improve your energy efficiency.

So essentially, can you avoid it? Sure. Should you? Absolutely not.

Why Are Annual Furnace Inspections So Important?

In brief, maintenance and tune-up services provide:

  • Drastically improved energy-efficiency. A well-maintained system works better, and can complete its task faster and more effectively, meaning you get more comfort for less cost. An easy win-win.
  • Less repairs. Any HVAC professional will tell you that the overwhelming majority of the furnace repairs they perform are related to or could have been prevented by professional maintenance. Routine care is about more than just maintaining. It’s about smart prevention, too.
  • A longer system lifespan. Generally you’re shooting for about ten to fifteen years of service from your furnace. But without maintenance, you can easily cut that expectation in half.
  • Better air quality. If you have a cleaner HVAC system, you have cleaner air. Annual inspections help many Ohio homeowners deal with our allergen-ridden area.

Do you like paying more money for less performance, or calling in for furnace repair yearly or more? Probably not; no one does! These are the core reasons why we encourage all of our patrons to take advantage of our superior maintenance services.
