Make Furnace Maintenance an Annual Priority



Schedule a yearly tune-up for your furnace to be completed by your trusted heating service company, and see the valuable results it generates by lowering your energy bills and keeping you from spending money to complete various furnace repairs in the winter.

During a tune-up, the furnace receives a thorough inspection so that any malfunctions or damaged components can be found and repaired before they cause performance problems in the thick of heating season. Newer furnaces and old ones alike are able to remain in good condition for longer, as you won’t have to replace parts repeatedly due to accumulating system damage.

What Happens During a Furnace Tune-Up?

Buckeye Heating, Cooling & Plumbing’s furnace inspection process is very thorough in order to provide the critical care heating systems need for upkeep. When you schedule Columbus furnace maintenance service with one of our NATE-certified furnace contractors, here is a look at what is completed during this visit.

  • The furnace’s heat exchanger is inspected for signs of corrosion, rust, and other damage that could cause carbon monoxide from combustion gases to leak inside the home.

  • The exhaust flue is inspected for blockages and damage that could trap carbon monoxide and other combustion byproducts inside the furnace.

How Often Should You Schedule Service for Furnace Maintenance and Furnace Cleaning?


Furnace manufacturers advise that their equipment should be professionally maintained one time each year by a licensed furnace technician. Manufacturers typically require furnace solutions like a tune-up is performed each year to uphold warranty terms, but it’s also because a maintenance tune-up provides obvious value that can help prevent some issues that may fall under the protection of the warranty.

Professional heating service tune ups are beneficial for furnaces whenever they are performed during the year, but this service provides an extra level of protection when completed in the fall prior to the winter season. Schedule service for furnace maintenance in the early fall and have your technician complete regular maintenance before it’s time to start using your heating system during the colder months. This will provide the opportunity for your system to receive a complete and thorough inspection before you need to use it, so any flaws can be found and corrected before that first cold day of the year.


Furnace Cleaning and Maintenance Tasks for Homeowners

A professional furnace tune-up completed once per year by a licensed HVAC technician is only one part of the bigger maintenance picture for a furnace. There are other steps that should be completed during the time between these visits.

Maintenance tasks performed by homeowners will go a long way toward improving the performance of the HVAC system and keeping its components in good condition. If you don’t make these maintenance steps a priority throughout the year, you may experience a decline in furnace efficiency along with indoor air quality problems. Learn what tasks homeowners need to perform and put them on your calendar so you remember to complete them when needed.
