What’s In a Tune-Up Service?
A heating tune-up is a preventative upkeep service that is designed to ensure reliability, longevity, and efficiency. While each tune-up is customized to the equipment that you have in your home or business, every tune-up does include a few standard services that are designed to improve your heater’s function, increase efficiency, save you money, and provide you with a number of other great perks as well.
Our Austin heater maintenance team has the training to handle tune-ups for all types of heating equipment, including:
- Heat pumps
- Electric/radiative heaters
- Hydronic heaters
- Geothermal heating
- Commercial heating equipment
A tune-up generally includes an inspection of your heater’s most important components, cleaning of important parts that are prone to collecting dust or debris, testing important parts for functionality and efficiency, checking your thermostat, and plenty of other simple solutions as well. We also thoroughly inspect your gas line, electrical connections, and other important and potentially dangerous features that can cause some serious problems if something goes wrong.
When Should I Schedule My Tune-Up?
We recommend scheduling a heating tune-up in the fall each year, before the need for your heater becomes urgent. That way your heater is prepped and ready to go the first time you need it. The majority of serious heating problems usually show up during the first heating cycle of the season, and maintenance can help you avoid this by making sure your heater is primed and ready for action.
If you haven’t had your heater tuned up yet and you have already needed your heater, that’s fine. It isn’t too late to schedule a tune-up. In fact, we recommend scheduling one as soon as possible so you can continue to enjoy the savings of improved energy efficiency and reliability.
