You’ve heard it before. You have probably listened to countless radio commercials urging you to schedule an appointment right away. You may have even seen or heard our fall specials.
But the question remains … “Do I really need a furnace tune-up every year?”
To answer that question, I’d like to first pose a few other questions:
If you answered yes to some of these questions (or any at all!), then you really do need a furnace tune-up each year.
The best analogy is that of a dentist. It’s recommended that two times per year you see the dentist for preventative dental care. They will clean and inspect your teeth, remove plaque build-up, inspect for cavities before they become a real problem, periodically take x-rays to identify hidden concerns, and many dentists even perform cancer screening.
Why is this so important? So that you can maintain great dental health and fix minor issues, before they become major issues. Instead of a painful root canal, or tooth extraction, these yearly exams will alert you to potential issues so that you can take care of it without a huge painful experience on your mouth and your wallet.
The same is true with furnace tune-ups. A qualified HVAC technician will inspect your HVAC system to ensure it’s running at peak efficiency. They will help make sure minor issues are fixed immediately before a costly repair or replacement is needed. They will also make sure your system doesn’t fail you during the winter and leave you and family out in the cold!
When scheduling a yearly tune-up, it’s important to understand exactly what will be covered. Be sure to do your homework because not all service calls will cover the same things. At TJ’s Plumbing & Heating, we cover the following items during our tune-ups:

Have you ever walked into a building or home and felt like you’re walking into a cloud? It could be a cloud of pet odor, strong food, maybe smoke, mold or mildew, or just a stale smell?
Of course you have, we all have! Some of us have even walked into our own homes and noticed a not-so-fresh odor. It doesn’t mean the house isn’t clean, it just means that daily odors are trapped—and they need a way out!
Today’s homes are more efficient. This is good, but…
In our quest to be energy efficient (and we should be), we’ve created buildings and homes that keep heat in over the winter, and keep our homes cool in the summer. This is great for our energy consumption, but doesn’t allow daily odors to escape.
Traditional heating and cooling systems are simply recycling stale air—with airborne odors—throughout the entire house. Without replacing the stale air with fresh air, the odors stick around—or worse, they intensify.
Let’s get fresh!
The good news is that you don’t have to stand for (or breath) stale air. If you’re dealing with slight, moderate, or even down right offensive odors, it might be time to install a whole-house ventilation system. Here’s how a good ventilation system helps:
