Why an HVAC Tune Up; Advice from an Indianapolis HVAC company
It’s that season again–time for an AC tune up as winter turns to spring in Indianapolis. Homeowners often wonder why HVAC companies recommend HVAC system tune ups every six months. Some people might think it’s just a scam to make some money. Nope! It’s about maintaining your system to ensure coming home never felt so good. In fact, some system warranties require tune ups.
Think of an HVAC tune up like getting the oil changed on your car or having your car tuned up. Keeping the engine in tip-top shape keeps you safe on the road.
So what goes into a tune up?
- Check thermostat calibration
- Clean & adjust burner assembly
- Clean ignition assembly
- Test starting capabilities
- Examine heat exchanger for damage and corrosion
- Monitor flue draft
- Test safety controls
- Clean and/or replace standard air filters
