furnace tune-ups are invaluable, West Chester, OhioIt’s that grit-your-teeth-and-bear-it moment of truth during a furnace tune-up: Just tell me if anything is wrong with my furnace. But as uncomfortable as this moment may be, it is far less painful than the alternative: a full-fledged furnace breakdown and an astronomical repair bill.

This is one reason furnace tune-ups are invaluable. They bring minor problems to light so they can be fixed at little cost -- before they balloon into bigger problems.

There are many tasks involved in a furnace tune-up, not the least of which is cleaning the components to remove dust and grime. Believe it or not, dirt buildup is the No. 1 reason furnaces fail, so a tune-up ensures that your furnace will continue to operate at peak efficiency.

Other benefits include:

  • Lower or level utility bills, because a furnace that runs efficiently consumes less energy
  • Better air quality in your home, because your furnace won't be blowing dust, dirt and possibly mold through your home 
  • The assurance that your furnace is not emitting harmful levels of carbon monoxide, a silent, odorless and potentially deadly gas
  • Greater longevity for your furnace. Like any other piece of mechanical equipment, a furnace that is cared for lasts longer. 

When you decide that the benefits of a furnace tune-up outweigh the discomfort of a grit-your-teeth-and-bear-it moment, call the furnace experts at Tri-County Heating & Cooling.

Before we arrive, check your furnace filter by holding it up to a light. If you can’t see through it, replace it. Here again, dirt can be your furnace’s No. 1 enemy – even causing it to shut down entirely. 

Then be sure that the air registers in your home are free of obstructions so that if you’re having any problems with airflow and room comfort, we can eliminate an obvious culprit. Also, lift up the registers, and check for piles of dust.

Together, we’ll ensure that your furnace provides months of reliable, efficient comfort throughout another long Greater Cincinnati winter. Call Tri-County Heating & Cooling to schedule your furnace tune-up.
