Are Furnace Tune-Ups Necessary?

November 12, 2019

When the heating season begins, customers often ask us about ways to save money. We understand that keeping your home the right temperature is a big part of your utility budget. There are some easy things you can do like lowering the thermostat a degree or two. However, we do not recommend trying to save a few dollars by skipping an annual HVAC maintenance appointment. A yearly furnace tune-up saves you money in the long run.

Longer System Life

With the money you invest in your home heating system, you want to keep it running for as long as possible. Annual maintenance will give you that benefit. When the system is cleaned and prepared for the winter months, you will have many seasons of home comfort. Regular maintenance gives you the best return on your home climate investment.

Fewer Repair Calls

Like any complex machine, parts of your furnace will wear out and need replacement over time. An annual maintenance appointment will catch many of these problems before they interrupt your home comfort. At the tune-up, our technicians will carefully look over your equipment. If they see a part that could be a problem, they can replace it on the spot before it fails. You will have an uninterrupted operation through the heating months.

Lower Utility Bills

One of the most important benefits of regular maintenance is increased efficiency. When the unit was first installed, the technicians set it up to operate at peak performance. With every passing season, your furnace will lose some of that initial power. When the professional technicians at Guidry's Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Inc maintain your system in Raceland, they will make certain that everything is clean, lubricated and ready to go. An annual maintenance appointment will put some of the pep back in your heating system. When the furnace runs more efficiently, you will spend less on heating your home.
