Furnace Precision Tune-Up
A precision furnace tune-up from Ernst consists of:
- Professional inspection – Our complete inspection includes checking the heat exchanger, vent system, blower, air intake grills, burner, thermostat, air filter, and more. We inspect every element of your furnace for safety and performance issues.
- Adjustment – We will check your furnace’s gas input to make sure it is at the correct level. If the gas input is too high or too low, we will adjust the regulator screw, manifold pressure, or other component to get it back to normal.
- Cleaning – This is arguably the most important part of furnace maintenance. Accumulated dirt and grime can slow the performance of all of the system’s components, resulting in lowered efficiency and poor operation. An annual professional cleaning ensures that your furnace is free of clogged dirt so that it can run at top function.
- Lubrication – Improperly lubricated mechanisms force your furnace to work harder. We make sure every moving part is fully inspected and lubricated.
Precision Tune-Ups for Air Conditioners
Our air conditioning tune-ups include:
- Professional inspection – Our comprehensive air conditioner inspection includes checking the thermostat, controls, condensate drain, refrigerant level, and all moving parts. We carefully examine every element for safety and performance issues.
- Cleaning – We thoroughly clean your A/C’s evaporator and condenser coils to help keep them running more efficiently longer. We also clean the blower to create increased airflow.
- Lubrication – As with furnaces, poor lubrication can affect every aspect of an air conditioner’s performance. We will examine all moving parts and make sure they are fully lubricated.
- Tightening and adjustments – Loose electrical connections can cause safety issues and shorten the lifespan of your system. Our techs will test and adjust blower components, and, when necessary, adjust motor voltage and currents.
