1x a Year
South Bend's Best Furnace Tune-up Company
Furnaces are an important component to being comfortable during the winter. We recommend servicing an HVAC system twice a year, once in the spring before utilizing the air conditioning and once in the fall before using the furnace.
The heat pump, heating mode, defrost cycle, backup heating source, ignition, burner assemblies, and heat exchanger are all checked to make sure they are clean and working properly. The technician will also test clearances, vents, combustion air, and gas pressure/piping. While both AC and furnace failures can be uncomfortable and potentially dangerous, furnace issues can be catastrophic.
Cracks in the gas pipes or heat exchangers, as well as a jammed ignition switch, can lead to carbon monoxide leaks which can be fatal! If there has been an ongoing carbon monoxide leak and your carbon monoxide detector goes off or you start to notice signs of carbon monoxide poisoning, everyone should evacuate the building and 911 should be called immediately. Because carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless, it can be hard to detect a leak. If you notice sooty, brown, or yellow staining around your furnace or the pilot light keeps blowing out, you should shut off your gas, open your windows to air out your home, and call an HVAC technician to come out right away.
Using this service is a benefit because:
Who is the service for?
Every home or business owner; we recommend a service or tune-up just before or during the fall. This way any potential issues are mitigated before the system is turned on.

Furnace tune-ups can pay for themselves by catching issues before they become a major problem. This prevents the aforementioned issues such as carbon monoxide poisoning.
A furnace tune-up is relatively inexpensive. Without seeing and/or knowing the system we can’t give an exact estimate, reach out to us and we’d be happy to help.
