What to Expect During a Heating Tune-Up

Our certified and fully insured HVAC technicians will clean and adjust the mechanisms within your furnace during the furnace tune-up. We adhere to a multi-point inspection process that includes changing filters, assessing fan speed, inspecting the condensate drain, and lubricating the blower and bearings. We also inspect all contactors and relays, the fan motor, safety controls, thermostats, and more.

The tune-up process takes anywhere from one to two hours to complete. At the end of the tune-up, our technicians will provide you with a detailed summary of the services we performed and any potential problems we discover.

Contact Sky HVAC to discuss the furnace tune-up services we perform during a routine visit. As always, we can customize our tune-ups to meet your specific system’s needs and any problems you are experiencing.

How Often Should I Get My Heating System Tuned Up?

We recommend tuning your furnace up before the fall. This is important because the furnace has been idle throughout the summer, and problems and necessary furnace repairs can go unnoticed until the weather starts to cool off. Many homeowners also choose to schedule a follow-up inspection in the spring when the weather starts to warm up.

Are Heating Tune-Ups Worth It? What Are the Benefits Of Maintenance Visits?

Regular tune-ups help keep your system in peak condition. It is the best way to identify minor problems before they cause major damage. Regular maintenance and Sky HVAC’s maintenance plan also help prolong your furnace’s operational life and can significantly cut your monthly utility bills.

DIY Tips For Maintaining Your Heating System Between Professional Maintenance Visits

It is always advisable to perform regular maintenance in between professional maintenance visits. This includes regularly inspecting your filters and changing them when they become clogged. You should also check your thermostat to ensure that it is maintaining the desired temperature within your home.

We also recommend checking your vents and vacuuming the registers. This helps prevent the buildup of debris within your ducts and helps keep the dirt, dander, pollen, and other pollutants from circulating through your home.

You should also perform a visual inspection of your furnace. Look/listen for signs of leaks and any clanking, banging, or grinding noises. If you discover any potential damage signs, it’s a good idea to schedule a maintenance visit.

Finally, don’t close the vents in unused rooms. Contrary to the popular myth, this won’t reduce your utility bills. Instead, doing so can increase wear and tear on your furnace.

As the summer heats up, you’ll naturally be using your air conditioner more and more. This is an effective way to beat the heat, but extensive use of your AC unit can cause wear and tear, or reveal existing problems. We at Sky HVAC want to help you and your family stay comfortable this summer, and to help you do that, our team has put together a list of signs to watch for in order to tell if you need air conditioner repair. Blows Warm Air - One clear sign that something is up with your air conditioner is warm air coming from your vents. If you put your hand by a vent and feel warm air, you probably need air conditioner repair. Makes Loud Noises - Another sign you should be wary of is loud or unusual noises coming from your AC unit. All air conditioners will make some noise as they run, but if you hear grinding, screeching, or scraping sounds from your unit, you should call our team at Sky HVAC to find out if you need air conditioner repair. Smells Bad - Your air conditioner is not supposed to stink. If you notice a bad smell coming from your unit when you turn it on, it’s likely that you need air conditioner repair. A musty smell usually indicates mold somewhere in your system, while a burned smell is likely the result of wire insulation burning out. If you notice any of these signs in your home or find something else unusual happening in your air conditioner, call our team at Sky HVAC. We’ll identify the problem and get your AC running smoothly as soon as possible.

Here at Sky HVAC, we specialize in all things air conditioning, and we want to help you stay cool this summer. Our team believes that the best way to help you take care of your air conditioning unit is to help you understand how it works. Knowing the principles behind your air conditioning unit will help you spot potential problems early and take care of them before they can become serious—or expensive. From our experts at Sky HVAC, here is a brief overview of how air conditioning works. Despite its association with cooling, the principle behind air conditioning is the transfer of heat. The typical air conditioning unit consists of an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser coil, and a fan. The evaporator is located inside the home, and contains a refrigerant that absorbs the heat energy from your home; as this happens, the refrigerant evaporates, hence the name. From there, the heat absorbed in the evaporator is transferred to the condenser coil, located in the exterior half of your air conditioning system. Also located outside with the condenser are the compressor and the fan. The compressor keeps refrigerant circulating throughout your system so that heat can be continually absorbed. Similarly, the fan keeps hot air moving out of your home. We hope that this article has been helpful to you. If you are experiencing problems with your air conditioning, or have further questions on how your unit operates, feel free to call our team at Sky HVAC.
