Signs you need a furnace tune-up in Buffalo, NY:

  • No Heat: If your heat turns off frequently, providing an inconsistent temperature for you and your family, a simple tune-up may help. Our service techs follow a thorough checklist when they inspect your furnace, ensuring any technical issues are found.
  • Increase in Energy Bills: As furnaces build up dirt and parts begin to fail, the efficiency of your furnace goes down. The less efficient your furnace is, the more money you spend on bills. You can save money by keeping your furnace running at peak performance.
  • Strange Smells: If your furnace is not operating at its best, you may detect odd smells from your furnace. If you find yourself plugging your nose while in the basement, a furnace tune-up in Buffalo, NY may be just what you need.
  • Loud Noises: If your furnace sounds like an angry animal, it’s probably time to give it the attention it needs. It could be a loose part or wearing belt, which our technicians are guaranteed to find.
  • Frequent Repairs: The occasional repair is expected with any heating system, especially as they age. But if you are calling a technician every week for heating issues, a full tune-up would diagnose issues before they develop into heat loss issues.
