Do you really, truly need an annual furnace tune-up?
What do you get out of an annual furnace tune-up anyway?
It can save you money on costly furnace repairs. It can add years to the life of your furnace! It can save you money on your energy bills by ensuring that system is running smoothly at all times. The harder your system works, the more energy it uses.

Are tune ups required to preserve the manufacturer's warranty?
Furnace manufacturers all recommend annual inspections and maintenance by a qualified heating and cooling contractor. You may want to read warranties very carefully as some may have language saying that damage caused by improper maintenance is not covered.
What Can You Expect During a Furnace Tune-Up?
The tune-up maybe be slightly different depending on what kind of system you have. However, we run the following basic checks on your system, including:
- Test carbon monoxide levels
- Pull and clean burners, adjust as needed
- Inspect heat exchanger
- Clean pilot assembly or flame sensor

- Inspect flu pipe and vent system
- Check draft and perform combustion analysis
- Check thermostat operation
- Check blower and motor operation
- Check gas pressure and adjust
- Change standard air filter if needed (filter extra)

Do I Have to Pay a Professional Every Year to Do It?
Yes! If you want your system to run as smoothly as possible, you should have it checked every year by an expert. Feel free to ask the technician what’s included in the tune-up! Does it include everything we’ve listed? If it doesn’t, then you may want to reconsider who you’re hiring. Make sure you hire a knowledgeable technician to keep your furnace running in tip-top shape.

“Our furnace had stopped working in the night, so I called CMR Mechanical. They were to our house and had it fixed by 9 a.m.! Charlie, the technician, explained it was a high limiter switch that had tripped. He showed me how to fix it the next time it happened. I really appreciate their honesty and expertise!”
