Some folks love the chill in the air that winter can offer, but no one wants that chill inside their home when they go to turn on their heat. Having your furnace tuned up can help you avoid turning your thermostat to heat, and nothing happening. Besides, a tune-up helps keep your furnace working as efficiently as possible, helping keep your energy bills down, and alleviating the stress of needing a sudden furnace fix.
Your furnace has a finite lifespan, but performing maintenance tune-ups can prolong that lifespan, making sure it serves you and your family for years to come.
What You Can Expect from A Furnace Tune-Up
We always do our best to be as transparent as possible with our customers, and we always want to let you know what we are doing in your home. Here’s some of what you can expect when we come to tune-up your furnace.
Cleaning the Furnace: The first step in our tune-up process is to perform a thorough cleaning of the unit. We work to get the dirt and dust removed from the blower, the fan, and the drain lines. We also clean the coil of the furnace and do so without damaging the blades at all. Our cleaning services can really help bring your furnace back to life.
Inspection: Once the system is clean, we can perform a full inspection. We look at every part of the furnace for cracks, excessive wear, and any other signs of upcoming problems. We work to put problems to rest before becoming a real pain!
Lubrication: Your furnace contains a lot of moving parts, and many of those parts lie within the motor. Like any motor, the one in your furnace requires lubrication to work perfectly. Don’t let your motor dry out and damage your furnace.
System Testing: We make sure that all the lines in your furnace are operating properly, and safely. We look at the fuel pressure, the airflow, and anything else that helps your furnace keep you warm.
Do I Really Need to Perform Regular Tune-Ups on my Furnace?
In short, yes. All furnace manufacturers recommend that your furnace is inspected annually and that any and all maintenance is performed by a qualified professional. While you may not find problems with each annual tune-up, you don’t want the year that you go without it to be the one that your furnace fails you. Much like a check-up for our health, a tune-up for your furnace keeps you from having to deal with any bigger problems down the road.
Can I Do a Furnace Tune-Up Myself?
While there are many things a homeowner can do, it’s not a recommended option. Carbon monoxide and other gasses are dangerous and should be treated with professional care. Improper maintenance can void your furnace’s warranty and requires the knowledge and experience of a professional. Like we said, your home’s heating system is a large investment, and you want to be sure it is in good hands. Anytime you are working with gas and other utilities, you want to be sure it’s done by a professional in a safe environment, and that’s where we come in.

Happy HVAC Customers
Our AC was blowing hot air in mid-summer, so we needed a fix fast. My technician was extremely knowledgable and arrived on time as promised. He discovered a leak in the pipe that attaches to our AC unit and was able to fix it quickly and get us up and running again thankfully. I won't hesitate to call Neighbors HVAC again for our AC yearly service.
AC unit started blowing hot air on one of the hottest days in Temecula. I called several AC companies in the valley, and everyone was either busy or didn't return my call. These guys picked right up, and they were able to send Juan out the same day. They came and diagnosed the issue right away the price was reasonable, and the repair was super fast. Thanks guys!
Neighbors HVAC is a solid company. My AC unit unexpectedly went bad after 15 years, and they replaced quickly and professionally. They were very affordable and knowledgeable in what I needed and didn't try to sell me on something I didn't need which is really important to me. I have told several of my friends about Neighbors.
