Fire Up That Furnace

Furnace Tune-Up Indianapolis

Have Your Furnace Inspected Before Cold Weather Hits

Furnace Tune-Up

It’s hard to imagine that autumn is less than a month away. Summer is always fun in central Indiana but cooler weather will be here again before we even know it. As you plan ahead for fall chores around the house, don’t forget about your furnace. It hasn’t been in use for a while now, so it’s a good idea to have it inspected by a professional.

At Mister Quik, many of our customers have asked us whether these annual inspections are necessary. Our answer is yes, and it’s also necessary to pick the right company to do the job. Home furnaces benefit from a tune-up at the end of every summer, but not every company goes about that service the same way. Some simply wipe away cobwebs and blow out dust; tasks that almost any homeowner can do themselves. Other contractors are more complete with their furnace tune-up services, and take the time to inspect components and clean the system. Naturally, price ranges for furnace tune-ups will vary widely from company to company, so call around and ask how much the service costs and what it comes with.

Annual Furnace Inspections

Annual Furnace Inspection

Annual inspections and tune-ups are necessary because they ensure a home’s heating system is in good shape. Think of it as preventative maintenance. It’s cheaper to pay a contractor once a year to maintain your furnace and catch any problems while they are still small, instead of having to call that contractor to come replace your entire system after a catastrophic breakdown.

The end of summer and the start of fall are good times to have your heating system inspected. If you would like to learn more about Mister Quik’s comprehensive heating tune-up, give us a call at (317) 207-4397 or schedule a home appointment using our easy online form.
