Furnace Cleaning

If you’ve been delaying a Furnace Tune Up your system is not operating at optimum efficiency. Further, most furnace breakdowns are directly related to little or no maintenance — often resulting in premature breakdown of your furnace components. Master Tech technicians will inspect, clean, oil and tune your furnace, which will insure a safe and comfortable winter season for you and your family.

Did You Know?
If your car was used as often as your furnace and air conditioner, it would have traveled over 200,000 miles in a year. Impossible you say? Well, it’s not. Your home heating and cooling system operates approximately 3,200 hours in a year. If you traveled 3,200 hours at 65 mph in your car you would have changed your oil 66 times, used 4 sets of tires, performed 4 tune-ups and flushed your cooling system 3 times.

No one would drive that many miles without performing any maintenance and expect for things to function properly. Just like your car, your furnace needs a tune-up, lubrication and cleaning. By performing a precision tune-up on your furnace, you minimize the chance of breakdowns — saving energy and extending the life of your heating system.

Preventive Maintenance & Your Furnace Warranty
Every furnace and air conditioner manufacturer recommends routine maintenance. What many homeowners never realize is that nearly every furnace manufacturer owner’s manual and warranty fine print states the homeowner is required to maintain their equipment or the warranty may become void. The small investment in a furnace tune-up will return big rewards. Some manufacturers require proof of routine heating maintenance, so remember to always keep a copy of your receipts for any and all service work performed.
