Why Get A Furnace Tune-Up?

Why Get A Furnace Tune-Up?

November 2, 2022 | Heating, Homeowner Tips

The cold weather is setting in! Most people are beginning to turn on their furnaces and some have had to make the dreaded phone call to their HVAC company letting them know that their furnace isn’t working properly. To keep yourself from being in this situation, it’s important to get furnace tune-ups to maintain the health of your system.

What Is a Furnace Tune-Up?

A furnace tune-up is a preventative maintenance for your heating system to ensure that it is functioning properly and efficiently to minimize issues down the road. Your HVAC system works hard to keep your home comfortable during extreme outdoor temperatures. Regular maintenance will enable you to get the most life out of your existing HVAC system by keeping it running at its best and identifying potential problems before they break and become larger problems. The expert team at Mattex has the skills and know-how to service any brand of system, regardless of age.

What Are Some Steps You Can Take to Maintain Your Furnace?

As a homeowner, you can take certain steps to help your system stay in tip-top shape. One very important step is to change your filters on a regular basis. A good rule to follow is to swap out your filters at least every quarter. You may need to do this more often if you have pets in your home, or if someone in your family suffers from allergies. Another important tip is to monitor your energy bills. If you notice a spike in consumption, this may be an indicator of a bigger problem. Finally, keep up on your preventative maintenance with Mattex! We offer a VIP Pro-Tune membership that comes with a Spring and Fall Tune-Up among many other great benefits to ensure your system remains healthy year-round.
