Are there possible cost savings from a furnace tune up?
If we notice a problem initially, we can take a before and after reading on the concerned part and record it. Some areas, such as a burner, if dirty can cause the appliance to burn too lean and not heat effectively.
Are there any health and safety issues relating to getting a furnace tune up?
Yes, the number one safety issue that we always look at is Carbon Monoxide(CO) emissions. Small levels of CO going out the exhaust is normal, but we want to check the inside air as well as the exhaust. Other concerns will be to inspect the venting, gassing and electrical components so that they are all intact.
