Have you heard the phrase “It’s tune up time”?

No? Well, then keep reading, because knowing about the benefits of furnace tune ups could save you a lot of headaches this winter season.

It is suggested that you get a maintenance check up at least once a year. This will not only keep your heating system running efficiently throughout the entire winter season, but it will also save you from having to dish out loads of money in repair costs. There are a number of things that could potentially go wrong with your system, including:

  1. Having a faulty pilot light
  2. Having dirty or clogged filters
  3. Thermostat malfunctions
  4. Air flow problems
  5. An ignition that won’t start
  6. Damaged coils
  7. Broken fan
  8. Bad electrical connections
  9. Defective blowers

But don’t let those things scare you. Getting a tune up serves as preventative maintenance, so you don’t have to worry about the above problems happening to your heating system in the middle of winter.

What Approved Comfort will do for you

In this particular instance, our Approved Comfort technicians went out to a home in Hoffman Estates and performed a 30 point inspection on a ten year old Lennox furnace. We have such an extensive list because we don’t want to leave anything to chance.

During that visit, they checked and adjusted every operational feature and made sure that all components met manufacturer specifics. They also inspected the dryer vents.

Before leaving your home, we will always make suggestions as to what you can do to improve comfort for you and your family. You have the option to decline those recommendations, but we will always be available to perform those tasks at a later date if you change your mind.

If you think it’s time for your furnace cleaning and safety inspection, call Approved Comfort today!
