Caring for your air conditioning unit or furnace is more than simply installing, replacing, and calling for repairs when something breaks down. Regular maintenance is the most important part of the equation. If you’ve never had a tune-up for your AC or furnace, you may find yourself wondering what exactly that means, or if it’s even necessary. At Service Champions, we offer our customers thorough, 21- point “WOW!” tune-ups. Here’s what that means for us, and why we think it’s so essential.
Why You Need a Tune-Up
Unless your AC unit or furnace breaks down or makes odd noises, chances are you don’t spend much time thinking about it. But problems can start well before they become noticeable, and it’s important to catch those issues early on. Regular maintenance can help extend the lifespan of your AC or furnace, and it can save you money on potential repairs or even replacement costs that could occur if your unit breaks down.
It can also save you money when it comes to energy costs. Regular tune-ups keep your unit energy efficient, so your home can stay comfortable and your energy bills can stay low.
What’s Included In Your Tune-Up
Some heating and cooling companies have a quick 10-minute maintenance check and then call it a day. At Service Champions, we submit that’s simply not enough time to give a thorough maintenance check. Our tune-ups take between 60-90 minutes, and include an analyzation and cleaning of all systems.
For your AC, we’ll check your blow motor to measure amperage and voltage, calibrate the thermostat and make sure it’s in working order, and check things like the refrigerant, safety devices, and electric wiring. We’ll test contactors for any burned contacts, monitor the compressor, and even check ductwork for any potential energy loss. You can learn more about our air conditioning tune-up here.
When it comes to your furnace, safety is key. We’ll check the system for dangerous carbon monoxide levels to protect your home, check for gas leaks, and ensure that there’s no combustible material around the furnace. The ignition system is also tested for safe usage, the Hydroscan™ is checked for any potentially dangerous wear and tear, and clean any burners and vents. Beyond that, we’ll check and calibrate the thermostat and blow motor, clean the furnace exterior, and check all systems for proper ventilation. Learn more about our furnace tune-up here.
