What’s Included in a Tune-Up?

First up, best you know exactly what it is you’re paying for! If you’re unfamiliar with a professional tune-up service you’ll want to know that it is a service designed to address common complications that can arise with your HVAC systems. This includes optimizations to help retain energy-efficiency, calibrations to ensure temperature and operational accuracy, and inspections to root out issues early on.

A typical furnace tune-up service includes:

  • Complete system cleaning including components, electrical systems, and filters
  • Electrical connection inspection to ensure tight connections and secure electrical service
  • Component checks to find signs of wear and tear and address any possible complications
  • Lubrication for moving parts to reduce overall wear and prolong the health of the system

This is a pretty bare-bones list, since the vast majority of service experts offer considerably more. But it at least gives you an idea of what an expert is actually doing when they show up to perform an annual service.

What Factors Play Into the Cost?

So the question of the exact cost isn’t really an easy one, if we’re being honest. It is going to depend on a lot of factors overall. Things that can impact the cost include the type of system you’re using, the system’s age, how frequently you get service, the maintenance plan you’re under, and even the individual business’ general pricing. We will say that the service usually pays for itself, and it’s a whole lot cheaper than a repair service, which is what maintenance aims to prevent from ever happening.

Is a Furnace Tune-Up Worth it?

So the cost is variable. But is the cost actually worth your time and money? Our experts will tell you absolutely. And we mean it! Maintenance is the perfect way for HVAC teams to show you the quality you deserve, and the benefits speak for themselves:

  • Lower energy costs. Clean, calibrated, and well cared for systems will work better and faster, as well as at a lower cost to you.
  • More dependable heating and cooling. Do you hate hot or cold spots, or uneven temperature control? If so then maintenance will prevent it!
  • Investment security. HVAC systems are necessary in Somers Point. But they most certainly aren’t cheap by any standard! If you want your investment to last ten, fifteen years, you need maintenance services in order to get it.
  • Improved home air quality. Clean systems mean cleaner air, less allergies, and less dusting and vacuuming in your home.
