Heating Tune-Up Company near Memphis TN

A furnace is essential during the cold winter months and unseasonably cold days throughout the rest of the year. Taking proper care of it, such as by getting a tune-up, is one of the best ways to ensure it keeps your home warm throughout its estimated 15-plus year lifespan. If you need a heating tune-up near Memphis, Tennessee, Choate's Air Conditioning, Heating, & Plumbing has you covered. 

What Is an Heating Tune-Up?

An heating tune-up involves a qualified HVAC technician assessing your unit and performing a range of standard tasks to evaluate its condition. For example, the technician may replace the filter, check and add to the refrigerant levels, remove debris from the condenser coils, inspect the ductwork and verify the thermostat is working properly. 

All aspects of the furnace unit are important for it to run properly, but the electrical elements are the keys to it all. The HVAC expert will check that all the wires are intact, safe and properly connected.

If there’s a particular task you would like done during the tune-up but you’re unsure if it’s included, please let the team at Choate's Air Conditioning, Heating, & Plumbing know when scheduling your appointment.

What Are the Benefits of an Heating Tune-Up?

Taking preemptive measures by scheduling a heating tune-up can have significant benefits for your unit, utility bills, and stress levels. 

For starters, the tune-up can extend the lifespan of your furnace unit. Non-portable air conditioners could last 15-plus years if they receive the right care.

Everyone knows that the better you take care of something you value, the longer it will likely last. Our technicians ensure everything within the unit is clean and working properly, so it can continue to operate efficiently.

When the unit is working correctly, it’s not overworking itself, which means it’s not exerting more energy than it has to. The harder it has to work, the more energy it needs and the more your utility bills increase.

Another benefit of a tune-up is that it can help prevent an issue from worsening, saving you money and stress in the process. Our experts can easily spot and address a potential problem, so it doesn’t have a chance to lead to a more costly repair or an unfortunate unit replacement. 

Knowing your furnace unit is working as it should be can also give you peace of mind knowing it’s unlikely it will break down at any point shortly. It’s one less thing you need to worry about, especially if you live with kids, elderly people, pets or individuals with a compromised immune system. 

Prevents Repairs

It might not seem like a big deal if your furnace unit needs a repair, but the more extensive the repair is, the more costly it might be. There’s also the issue of the warranty. The one that came with your furnace likely has requirements to maintain its validity, such as getting a tune-up done by a professional at least once per year. 

You may think the warranty will cover the repair, but that’s not necessarily the case. It depends on the type of repair and if the warranty is still valid. If the repair isn’t covered, the cost must come out of your pocket. Getting an annual heating tune-up can help keep your warranty valid throughout its duration and prevent the need for future repairs.

Extends Your Furnace's Lifespan

Although non-portable air conditioners typically last 15-plus years, there are no guarantees. Something as seemingly simple as a heating tune-up performed by a qualified HVAC technician can keep the unit running properly for an extended time. Consider it the furnace equivalent of a person getting a physical. You’re probably not looking forward to it, but it can be beneficial for health and well-being purposes.  

Lowers Utility Bills

During a time when the prices of nearly everything are way higher than anyone would like, doing whatever you can to keep costs low simply makes sense. It’s easy to feel like many of these elevated costs are out of your control, but scheduling a heating tune-up is something easy you can do to keep your utility bills as low as possible every month. 

Think about the built-up dust and debris on components of the furnace unit like a human wearing uncomfortable clothing layers. You could probably walk around and move your body, but not nearly as well as you could without the restriction and added clothing weight. You’ll exert more energy and feel more tired. When our expert technicians remove all the debris from the furnace's components, it releases the restrictions from the unit, so it can go back to using a normal amount of energy and working as intended. This will also keep your bills low.

Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Dirt, dust, mold, and various other irritants can build up within various components of your HVAC system, reducing the efficiency of your system as well as the quality of the air in your home. Because your heater and air conditioner are constantly recirculating air, you will want to ensure that this air is pure and clean with the solutions below.

Physical Filters

There are different filters you can incorporate into your system, which will physical trap particles like dust and mold spores. These should be replaced often as part of your seasonal HVAC maintenance.

UV Lights

UV light use ultraviolet light to zap contaminants that a standard filter might miss. These air purification systems can be installed within your ductwork, so they remain out of the way, ensuring that air is cleaned at the source.


Humidity control can be helpful when it comes to reducing allergy and asthma symptoms at home, so you might invest in a humidifier to reintroduce moisture to the air when you run the furnace during the winter. This can keep you more comfortable and allow you to breathe easier.

Air Duct Cleaning

With no added equipment, air duct cleaning helps you boost the performance of your HVAC system and clean the air in your home. Professional duct cleaning will reduce the risk of mold and mildew growth by clearing out pockets of dust, where mold can grow. Additionally, this will clear your system of blockages so that air flows freely, reducing stress on your system.

Leaving the thermostat on the winter schedule can be both expensive and quite uncomfortable.
