HVAC Maintenance: What is a Tune-Up?

Your furnace and air conditioning system works hard all year long to keep your house comfortable. With regular tune-ups and repairs, you can extend the life of your HVAC unit and keep it operating at peak efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do I need to have my unit serviced?

You should have a regular tune-up twice a year, typically at the beginning of each heating and cooling season, to ensure that your system is working efficiently before the weather gets too hot or cold. However, air conditioning and furnace maintenance may be scheduled at any time.

What brands or equipment do you service?

We offer tune-ups for all brands of central heating and cooling equipment. Equipment serviced includes central air conditioners, furnaces, heat pumps, and air quality systems such as whole-home humidifiers, dehumidifiers, and air cleaners. Tune-up service is also available for oil furnaces, ductless mini-splits and boilers in many markets.

Is a tune-up covered by my warranty?

No. Extended warranties and extended service agreements do not cover the cost of regular maintenance of your system. Tune-ups are considered regular maintenance and are required by most manufacturers for your warranty to remain in effect.
