You have most likely heard of our Precision Tune-Up service from past newsletters, this website, and other promotions but have you ever wondered exactly what happens during a Precision Tune-Up (PTU)? With this story told in pictures we hope to give you a better understanding of what a PTU for a gas furnace looks like and how it can benefit your home.
Each PTU starts with a trained Service Technician removing the electronic air cleaner to inspect and clean. Whether you have an electronic air cleaner or a disposable filter, it is necessary to make sure they are cleaned or replaced monthly or quarterly. Our Service Technicians can talk to you about specific details for your system.
Here the Service Technician is removing the blower for cleaning. Having a cleaned blower assembly and wheel ensures the furnace will deliver the proper amount of air for optimum performance.
When the Service Technician finishes with the electronic air cleaner and blower the process of checking the heat exchanger and cleaning the burners is begun. Clean burners and good flame patterns combined with the proper sequence of operation can ensure "worry-free operation" for your home.
Before finishing up the Service Technician checks the gas pressure to your system. Checking your furnace for proper fuel pressure can be critical so that the equipment does not overfire.
