furnace-tuneup-imgHeating seasons are long in the Northland, and there’s something to be said for having your furnace or boiler tuned up each season so they are ready for the rigorous demand our winters put on them. Also, most often the energy savings realized with a heating unit that has had a precision tune-up will more than pay for the tune-up cost each year. A furnace or boiler that has been tuned-up will also be much more reliable and help prevent heating system failures which always seem to happen at the most inopportune times. Call now and schedule an appointment to have one of our NATE certified technicians perform a precision tune-up on your furnace or boiler for as low as $79! Along with a tune-up you will also be enrolled in our Preferred Customer Program which allows you to take advantage of many benefits including discounted future service and repairs for both plumbing and heating, no overtime rates for after hours service calls Monday-Saturday excluding holidays, and you get moved to the front for priority emergency service when needed.

The following is an overview of items done during a precision tune-up:

Gas Furnace

  • Inspect condition of heat exchanger
  • Verify all venting is not plugged or leaking
  • Check igniter and flame sensor
  • Check condensate removal systemtech-furnace
  • Verify gas pressure is correct
  • Run a combustion analysis to verify proper gas/air mixture
  • Inspect filter
  • Inspect blower motor
  • Check combustion inducer blower for proper operation

Gas Boiler

  • Inspect condition of heat exchanger
  • Verify all venting is not plugged or leaking
  • Check igniter and flame sensor
  • Run a combustion analysis to verify proper oil/air mixture

Geothermal Water to Water*

  • Check level of water/methanol in system
  • Check freeze point of loop field and home hydronic side of system
  • Check all temperatures/pressures/flows of system
  • Perform a HE/HR and COP calculation to verify system efficiency

Geothermal Water to Air*

  • Check level of water/methanol in system
  • Check freeze point of loop field
  • Check all temperatures/pressures/flows of system
  • Perform a HE/HR and COP calculation to verify system efficiency
  • Check air filter and coil
  • Check blower motor

Geothermal system tune-ups are offered at a higher cost due to complexity and time involved. Please call for appointment and pricing.

Air Source Heat Pump

  • Clear condensing unit of debris
  • Check A-coil for soot buildup
  • Verify heating and cooling temperature splits
  • Check for any refrigerant leaks
  • Clear condensate drain line of blockages
