Furnace Tune-Up in Smithtown

Remember the polar vortex? Outstanding Plumbing sure does! Homeowners in Long Island who didn’t properly prepare for winter found that their furnaces couldn’t handle the pressure of reaching the thermostat pre-sets from those record cold temperatures. In 2013, we unfortunately had to make a large number of dispatches to homes that needed urgent furnace repair and replacement — even though those issues could have been avoided if they’d had a simple furnace tune-up service done.

Manufacturers recommend that furnace products receive annual maintenance to ensure that the unit is running at full efficiency. Without receiving service each year, furnaces tend to fall into disrepair, and even if they are high efficiency, high quality products to begin with, they begin to waste heat through weaknesses in the insulation, cracks in the heat exchanger equipment, and generally rust buildup throughout the machine. Last year, if you didn’t have the maintenance done, you were at major risk of having a breakdown during the coldest weeks of the year…maybe it even happened! Furnace breakdowns are unfortunately pretty common, and they always seem to happen on the coldest days of the year. By the way, why is that? How come your heating never seems to have a breakdown on a balmy 50 degree day in the Long Island fall?

It’s not just fate playing a cruel trick: the fact of the matter is that, since furnaces need to work harder to reach the thermostat setting on days when the temperatures are lowest, those are the days that they tend to give out. The result is that you’re most likely to have a break down when you need your heating most! But you can spare yourself that trouble by having a furnace tune-up done before the temperature truly starts to drop. A tune-up will include the following services:

  • Troubleshooting for entire unit
  • Safety control adjustments
  • Oiling and inspection for old parts
  • Complete system check

Those 4 checks are immensely important, but there’s more to a preseason tune-up than just general maintenance. Pre-season tune-ups are an investment in the reassurance that your heating system will be guaranteed to last through the winter. Not only that, but tune-ups also improve your furnace’s energy efficiency, reduce your utility bills, and lengthen the lifespan of your machine.

So call Outstanding today to have a comprehensive professional tune-up performed on your furnace, and you’ll have peace of mind all winter long knowing that your heat is not going to quit. You can also have the Outstanding professionals do your furnace repair, furnace replacement, and furnace installation — and remember, we offer 24/7 emergency service as well! You won’t need to worry about that, though, if you call to schedule your furnace tune-up today!
