When many homeowners hear that they should schedule annual furnace tune-ups, they think of it as a needless expense when compared to the other household repairs and maintenance tasks they need to budget for. And when they hear that annual furnace tune-ups can actually save them money on furnace repairs, they're even more incredulous. "How can I save money by spending money?" may be a natural question to ask, but when it comes to paying for an annual furnace tune-up, it's easy to answer.
During a furnace tune-up, an HVAC technician performs a thorough analysis of your furnace to measure its output, efficiency, and functionality. During this series of tests, the technician gets a comprehensive understanding of the condition of every component of the heating system. So, while your furnace may be running fine when the technician arrives to perform the tune-up, he or she may be able to spot the signs of impending failure. When you know that a problem may be on your horizon, you have time to budget for the repair work. Conversely, when you don't keep up with regular tune-ups, your furnace may run perfectly one day and break the next. When you find yourself in need of emergency furnace repairs, you have a much higher chance of paying more than you would if you knew about the problem and scheduled the repairs in advance of the malfunction.
