A home HVAC system is one of the most expensive pieces of equipment in a home. Most people will perform basic maintenance such as changing air filters and occasionally cleaning the coils. However, the home’s HVAC system requires much more maintenance that should be performed by a professional HVAC technician. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning would like to focus on the benefits of tune-ups for the heating system.
More Energy Efficient Heating System
When a heating system runs throughout the winter season it can wear down various components in the heating system. There are two major types of heating systems; one is a furnace and the second is a boiler. Boilers are uncommon in Las Vegas and most modern homes use furnaces. As a furnace runs during the winter the efficiency decreases. Components can wear down, filters get clogged and dirty. When a furnace is tuned up, all of the components are inspected, cleaned, and all moving parts lubricated. If a component is wearing out it can be replaced before the entire heating system fails. To help reduce energy consumption and keep a healthy heating system, have the heating system tuned up.
Improve Central Heating Life Expectancy
As stated in the beginning, a home heating system is expensive and replacing a furnace can easily cost thousands of dollars. The cost will vary on size. The furnace will wear down over time and eventually it will die and require replacement. However, the average furnace can last between 15 and 30 years with proper care and regular maintenance. When a furnace or the heating system is neglected and never tuned up or serviced, it can wear down even quicker. Especially, as components wear down it puts additional stress on the heating system which can lead to expensive repairs and complete failure. To help extend the life of your home’s heating system, have regular tune-ups, keep the minor issues in check and keep the heat running smoothly.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Prevention
One of the most important reasons to have you home heating system inspected and tuned up, is to make sure there are no carbon monoxide leaks. The heat exchanger is one of the major components of a furnace which goes through frequent expanding and contracting as the furnace heats the home. Over time the heat exchanger can crack and begin leaking out carbon monoxide which is a tasteless, colorless, and odorless gas. This gas can lead to death. Depending on the amount of gas that is leaking, and how long a person is exposed to carbon monoxide, they can begin to develop headaches, nausea, begin vomiting and even die due to prolonged exposure. Since carbon monoxide can be difficult to detect, having the furnace inspected and tuned up can help make sure the heat exchangers aren’t leaking gas.

To ensure the longevity and efficiency of your home’s heating system, and to keep your family safe, make sure to schedule regular tune-ups. The best time to have a furnace tune-up is in the fall before it begins undergoing regular use. However, it is better to be late than never have the heating system tuned up.
